I have a heart condition that causes frequent palpitations or at least it used to. When I began taking the Nature's Way turmeric the palpitations all but disappeared. Then I switched to Botanic Choice and the palpitations not only reappeared but began occurring more frequently. I should also mention that on the bottom of the bottle is a sticker labeled "WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm." Regardless of whether you're concerned about reproductive problems this product is supposed to benefit your health not harm it. If it's not 100% natural then don't take it. The only listed ingredients other than turmeric are gelatin and magnesium stearate. If you're not familiar with the ingredient magnesium stearate perhaps you would be more familiar with its common name...soap scum. Seriously, look it up. I'm not sure if the warning is referring to one of those ingredients or perhaps the plastic bottle itself but either way I don't feel safe taking it and it certainly is not helping my health or heart condition. I'll be switching back to Nature's Way or I might try organic turmeric powder instead.
The primary reason that you should never buy this turmeric formulation is because it contains magnesium stearate, which has been linked to birth defects and various other reproductive issues. Saving the few extra bucks is not worth the risk, unless you don't plan on having more children. Then again, if it isn't good for those parts of your body, why would it be good for the rest?
The sub-primary reason that you should never buy this turmeric formulation is because the quality is crap. If you buy this, please also buy something like the Organic India turmeric formula. When they arrive in the mail, open each bottle and sniff. You will smell turmeric in one of them, and it ain't this one. Then open up a capsule from each and taste. One of capsule innards will taste like turmeric, and it ain't this one. I'm not trying to say that there is no turmeric/curcumin in the Botanic Choice capsule, I'm just saying that the proof of quality is in the pudding, and this pudding sucks.
By the way... turmeric pudding? Yuck.
The final reason I've come here to write a review is that I, myself, ignored the two primary reasons and was lured by the siren's call of this being cheap as heck. So, I tried using it. After a few weeks, sores starting popping up in my mouth and specifically on my tongue. This is the only part of my diet and/or vitamin regimen that I had changed, and as soon as I stopped ingesting these, the sores went away. I went back to Organic India turmeric (and have since also used New Chapter turmeric), and the sores have not reappeared. It may not be a common reaction, but it was not a pleasant reaction.
So I hope the two lessons you learn from this review are never, ever buy this and turmeric pudding is a dangerous idea.
