Organic India 100% Pure Turmeric
Turmeric, (Curcuma longa), is gaining the reputation to be the single most important herb for many health and dietary needs. Currently, turmeric is one of the most studied botanicals in modern science. It has traditionally been used to support: digestive function, heart health, healthy immune response, and joint and muscle health.
Our Turmeric Formula is made with ultra pure 100% organic turmeric, a formulation abundant in curcuminoids--phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant and natural inflammatory response properties that fight the damaging effects of free radicals in the body.
Fortified with curcuminoid extract and organic ginger, our Turmeric capsules support important blood and liver functions, healthy joints, and overall well-being which is ultimately reflected in radiant, supple skin.
Created from 100% USDA-certified organic herbs, our Turmeric capsules combine powerful bio-availability with a formula that is certified:
- non GMO
- gluten free
- gelatin free
- filler and additive free
- and bottled in glass to prevent toxic plastic leaching.
- Kosher and Halel certified

Regarding brain function: Most individuals have the ApoE gene to remove amyloid. Amyloid is basically a waste product of neurons. But it is estimated that 25% of the population has a mutation of this gene which allows amyloid deposits to build up and interfere with our normal brain function. We can counter this affect with turmeric/curcumin, curry, yellow mustard and moderate to strong pungent cayenne (sharp red pepper). Turmeric is an ingredient in curry, and a smaller amount is found in yellow mustard. There might actually be other ingredients in curry and yellow mustard that enhance turmeric's bioavailability, such as the black pepper and ginger in the curry, or the apple cider vinegar in the right yellow mustard formula. (Note it is the turmeric in yellow mustard that gives it the color -- other mustard's do not generally contain turmeric.)
I generally applaud Organic India products for their use of organic ingredients and for their commitment to purity -- eg no fillers and lubricants added such as stearic acid/vegetable stearates, silicon dioxide, silica, talc, etc....
However, I have used this product daily for at least six months with no recognizable improvement of inflammation or cognition. Yet when I began taking a fairly small intake of cayenne pepper I noticed cognitive improvements after about a month. (Not so much for inflammation though - probably need to take more.) Basically, I just sprinkle it generously on everything savory that I eat. I quickly adjusted to the heat and was able to increase the amount. I've tried taking a quarter to half tsp directly but found it too hot for my stomach, even with fresh grated ginger. I might try this again though since I seem to be building up some tolerance to the heat. Taking it with food helps.
Research shows the addition of black pepper to turmeric aids absorption. Some research says by as much as 2000%. Manufactures generally know this and many and add piperine, which is a black pepper alkaloid. (Note, the studies used a ratio of 10-12% piperine to turmeric - basically 20-25 mg piperine to 2000 mg turmeric). So I wonder why Organic India has not added piperine? The addition of ginger is good - it too is a potent inflammatory - but there doesn't appear to be any research to show that it offers the same enhanced absorption as black pepper.
The problem I have found with most of the manufacturers who add piperine to their formulas is they also use fillers. One study showed the addition of stearate/stearic acid reduced nutrient absorption by 80%. It is also a triglyceride and GMO-sourced. And it has been shown to have a damaging affect on the lining of the gut, leading to long-term digestive issues, so supplements containing these are best avoided.
There is evidence showing that simply taking turmeric with a meal that contains black pepper will aid absorption. Although the exact amount has not been defined 1/4 tsp seems to be the recommended dose which is a fair amount of pepper, right? The understanding is that black pepper interferes with some key enzymes and thus allows the curcumin to pass through without being destroyed by the liver as a foreign substance. I don't believe there is any evidence to suggest that ginger rhizomes will do the same. (Be sure to use fresh ground whole peppercorns since the piperine can be lost with storage.) This certainly makes curry a best bet since it contains several key ingredients which include black pepper and turmeric. Most of the world's supply of turmeric and black pepper come from India so it is no surprise that their population simply does not suffer from Alzheimers and dementia like the rest of the world.
Perhaps Organic India will consider reformulating this product with the addition of piperine, and they could keep this formula with ginger for those with sensitive stomachs since pepper can cause gastric upset for some. Meanwhile I am struggling about whether to give the review 3 or 4 stars. Organic, no fillers and a standardized formula certainly rate at the top of my list, but if it isn't effective then it's a waste of money. On the other hand, you could try adding a decent amount of black pepper to a meal when you take these. And I recommend increasing the recommended dosage to at least 2 caps 2-3 times per day. The recommended does is generally 400-600 mg, 2-3 times per day. Up to 8000 mg has not shown toxicity.
I'm going with only 3 stars because people, like myself, often skim the 4 and 5 star reviews as being quite satisfactory. I like and respect the manufacture but the product is too lacking in bioavailability to warrant 4 or 5 stars. If they improve their formula I will definitely reconsider the low rating.
Some updates, September 07, 2016: I forgot to mention above that Curcumin has been shown to cause apoptosis in breast cancer stem cells as well as in some other cancers. I have also been asked if those with auto immune disorders can take turmeric, thinking the curcuminoids might increase immune function which under certain circumstance can inflame autoimmune symptoms. Curcumin does not work like an immune enhancing herb such as echinacea which is an anti-inflammatory herb that also stimulates the immune system through increased production of T-cells and macrophages in the bloodstream which in turn attack pathogens. Rather, turmeric works by inhibiting regulator molecules that send messages to genes to produce inflammation.
Also worth mentioning:
Due to the increasing fraudulent use of organic claims - especially with products sold online (including Amazon) - I began looking for the organic "certification" when advertised on the front of the bottles.I checked the Organic India website and they claim to be organically certified through the NPOP India Organic and also the EU (rather than through the USDA). But neither organic seal is displayed on the bottle. In the US, in order to legally display the word "organic" on the front of any label, a recognized organic seal is REQUIRED. So I attempted to contact the company through their website to request a copy of their certifications and, as of today, their website online form link was not functioning along with links to several other pages. There is also no direct email address provided, and no phone number was posted on their 'contact us' page (or anywhere else) to call them. This does not bode well. Perhaps a company spokesperson will respond here to support their organic claims and help us understand why there is no certified organic seal on their label. I doubt just because they are imported and certified by foreign entities that they are exempt from USDA laws.
In conclusion, I have not been able to find a seal-certified turmeric/curcumin product without added fillers or flow agents, so I now recommend buying organic turmeric in bulk powder from Mountain Rose Herbs, Frontier, or Star Botanicals. The last two are available on Amazon, but I've received some poor quality herbs from Star Botanicals (lots of stones, twigs, stems, etc in certain flower and leafy herbs) so they are a last choice for me. Mountain Rose is my go-to for bulk. (I have no connection.) Plus you'll save some money buying bulk powder. You could always get a capsule maker and a bag of capsules to make your own if taste is an issue. Just remember to add freshly ground organic black pepper to increase absorption. Also taking turmeric with food helps eliminate any indigestion that can occur.
Sorry to come down so hard on Organic India but I think I have raised some legitimate concerns.

When I received it it has turmeric and ginger but also some other ingredients not listed called trikatu, pepper fruit, pepper seed. I tried it and it gave me esophagus burn, so I went back to Amazon to try and return it and their is a No return Policy on this product. BUYER BEWARE Now I'm stuck with a 180 caps bottle.
How can they get away with listing the wrong ingredients, isn't their some sort of regulations on these products, some people have severe allergy to some of these ingredients.
I began consuming tumeric milk and Ashawagada together...and my pain is GONE! A miracle from the earth!!
I went on a snowboarding trip to Revelstoke after not going snowboarding in over 8 years, while my friends who were much more experienced than I got very sore during the trip, I doubled up on dosages of turmeric and never got even slightly sore. Granted I did a fair amount of leg exercises before going they did as well.
Also take this before and after soccer games now and ever since i started it minimized how sore i was the next day to barely anything.
