A high strength, pure extract of this popular spice
The most important ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is found within the root of the plant, and it is this part which is responsible for its bright yellow colour. The highly concentrated extract of turmeric roots used in these tablets is 95% curcumin, which means that each tablet provides the equivalent of 10g of culinary turmeric (or two heaped teaspoons). The tablets are taste free and coated for ease of swallowing. Some other turmeric supplements available contain just normal culinary turmeric, providing just 400mg (or 0.4g) of turmeric per tablet which is well below the level used in the studies that have generated so much interest in this fascinating spice. Researchers are interested in the theory that the regular intake of turmeric in Asian food may be one factor in explaining the health benefits of the Eastern diet.
Studies have already shown how the key active constituent, the curcumins, in turmeric can inhibit the compounds involved in the inflammatory response. Consequently, supplement users often combine turmeric with glucosamine sulphate or bromelain to combat joint problems such as stiffness.
Similarly, turmeric is increasingly being added to formulations for back problems. However, almost all of these formulas provide only token levels of this spice.
Lamberts Turmeric extract is a high potency root extract standardised to provide 95% curcumins, which is the level generally used in studies. Each tablet contains 500mg of turmeric root extract, which is equivalent to 10,000mg of turmeric spice, making Lamberts® Turmeric one of the strongest products in the UK.
