Today we are reviewing Herb Pharm’s Turmeric Softgels. This is a dietary supplement claimed by the manufacturer to provide multiple health benefits including its ability to heal joint related pain and functioning, lower cholesterol, enhance cardiovascular and digestive system functioning, protect the liver, increase bile production for fat breakdown, anti-inflammatory. Herb Pharm claims that this product is pure and safe because of their natural extraction processes used to extract the maximum amount of curcuminoids.
Each vegetarian softgel contains the following certified organic ingredients:
- Turmeric (Curcuma longa) root (200 mg) – providing 20 mg of curcuminoids
- Turmeric root supercritical extract (25mg) providing 12 mg of tumerones
- Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) supercritical extract (5 mg)
- Certified Organic Olive oil
- Certified Organic Sunflower lecithin
Black pepper extract helps in the absorption of the turmeric curcumin. The softgels are vegetarian and made from modified food starches which come from non-GMO corn, vegetable glycerin, purified water, carrageenan, sorbitol and organic caramel.
Take one capsule once or twice per day with meals. It does not state at what time of day to take.
Possible Side Effects
This product has no known or reported side effects. Discontinue use immediately, and contact a doctor if you experience any allergic reactions.
On the manufacturer’s website, one 60 count bottle of capsules costs $28.00, plus shipping. There is no bulk buying discount nor new customer incentive offered. Standard shipping is $5.99, but free if you spend $50 or more.
There is a confusing policy relating to returns, it says that they will will accept returns if due to their error, but it also says that if you are not satisfied, you can return the product for a replacement or a credit. Either way, you need to notify them within 7 days of purchase to request a refund. It seems to us that this not a guarantee that protects your rights as a consumer and doesn’t allow you enough time to know if the product is helpful to you.
Conclusion of Our Herb Pharm Turmeric Softgels Review
The positive aspects about this product are that it is certified organic, vegetarian and made from modified food starches which come from non-GMO corn, vegetable glycerin, purified water, carrageenan, sorbitol and organic caramel. The supplement is all-vegetarian and suitable for vegetarians or vegans. We have a number of negative comments too however. This supplement is costly at $28.00 and doesn’t include shipping unless you spend $50 or more. There is no bulk buying discount nor new customer discount. There in no assurance that this product is manufactured in a FDA and GMP certified facility that abides by the US Pharmacopeia standards of quality. Other products on the market offer higher doses of turmeric curcumin. There is a confusing policy relating to returns that fails to protect your rights as a consumer and doesn’t allow you enough time to know if the product is helpful to you. We recommend that you only purchase supplements with a comprehensive return policy that is good value for money and backed by solid consumer reviews.
