All About Turmeric: Which Turmeric Supplement is Right For Me?
We love Turmeric! This use of this ancient herb dates back nearly 4,000 years to the Vedic culture in India, where it was used as a culinary spice. In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric was well regarded for its anti-inflammatory properties.*  With all the turmeric supplements and powders on the market, it can be confusing to know where to start. This blog takes a look at our 3 turmeric products to help you choose the best turmeric to start your wellness journey.

The Importance of Cucumin
Turmeric contains many plant compounds, but curcuminoids are renowned for their health-promoting benefits.* The compounds in curcuminoids include curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin, with curcumin being well-regarded for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-promoting properties.*
While the curcuminoids found naturally in turmeric range at about 2%, some products standardize the amount of curcuminoids in their formulations for higher potency. Nature's Lab offers turmeric in both natural powder form as well as formulas with enhanced curcuminoid content.

Which Turmeric is Right for Me?
There is no official consensus on whether it’s best to take turmeric powders, turmeric supplements, or curcumin-enhanced supplements. Most studies use extracted turmeric with high concentrations of curcumin, but we recommend trying different forms of turmeric to find the one perfectly suited for you.
