Turmeric root extract has been used for thousands of years in natural medicine. Turmeric and the compound curcumin contained within has been scientifically proven as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It is also an extremely potent antioxidant, which helps reduce the risk of many types of cancer, and reduces cellular ageing. Other benefits include improved cardiac and digestive health, stronger immune system response, and improved joint mobility and liver function. Turmeric root supercritical extract has undergone a method of extracting the beneficial compounds of turmeric to create a more potent substance. This, combined with the standard turmeric root, creates an especially powerful supplement that requires fewer tablets for equal effectiveness.
Black pepper extract has been shown to improve digestion while reducing gas and bloating, which helps the body absorb both the turmeric in this supplement and other nutrients in the form of other supplements or food. Other benefits include support to cognitive and respiratory health.
Both turmeric and black pepper share many similar benefits, including improved digestion, circulation, and support for cognitive health. Because of this, they act to complement each other, creating a supplement which is specially designed to not only decrease inflammation throughout the body, but which enhances the health of every system in the body.
For best results, one capsule should be taken one to two times per day with a meal.

Conclusion of Our Gaia Herbs Turmeric Supreme Extra Strength Review
This product seems to contain the necessary ingredients to know you are getting a good-quality product. It also seems to be great value at this price point. The capsules are vegetarian, and gluten free which makes them suitable for most people. The dosage instructions are a little unclear as to when you should take one capsule a day and when you should take two. We were also unable to find customer reviews available through the company’s site, so it is unclear what individual experiences are like.
