Are turmeric and curcumin the same thing?
Turmeric has been used for centuries as a flavoring for food and a traditional remedy for various ailments. Curcumin, the primary active ingredient in Turmeric, was first isolated in 1815. Turmeric only contains about 5% curcumin, which in its natural form is only absorbed in extremely small amounts. It wasn’t until modern science used nanotechnology to make curcumin water soluble and highly absorbable by the body that its real power was unlocked.
What does curcumin do for you?
Curcumin is a type of polyphenol with anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant effects. It works in ways that are different from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. As a result, curcumin has not been shown to increase the risk of heart attack in people with cardiovascular disease.* In fact, researchers are constantly discovering new ways curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties can be used to support heart health.*
How is Cardiotabs Curcumin different?
Cardiotabs Curcumin is where advanced science meets a wonder of the natural world. Theracurmin®, the primary ingredient in a Cardiotabs Curcumin supplement capsule, is a nanoparticle (extremely tiny pieces) formulation of curcumin that enables it to be absorbed into water. The result is a higher level of curcumin in the bloodstream, brain and joints. about 30 times greater than a comparable dose of conventional curcumin). Additionally, Cardiotabs Curcumin reaches peak concentration in the bloodstream six times faster than unformulated curcumin.
How to use Cardiotabs Curcumin?
For general health support, take two capsules each day. You can also break open a capsule and add it to any food or beverage. Most people see positive benefits from Cardiotabs Curcumin within two to four weeks.
Why Do Other Curcumin Products Contain Black Pepper?
Because most curcumin products are poorly absorbed, manufacturers add a form of black pepper to aid in absorption. However, since Cardiotabs Curcumin uses Theracurmin®, a nanoparticle form of Curcumin, it is easily and rapidly absorbed. Based on clinical data, Theracurmin® reaches peak concentration in the bloodstream six times faster than unformulated curcumin.
How much Theracurmin® does Cardiotabs Curcumin contain? 600 mg or 180 mg?
Of the 600 mg per serving of Theracurmin® that Cardiotabs Curcumin contains, 30% (180 mg) is the active curcuminoids and the rest are excipients.
Does Curcumin Interact with Medications?
Curcumin may interact with medications that slow blood clotting such as aspirin, Plavix, and Coumadin, increasing the chance of bruising and bleeding.
I really enjoy the Cardiotabs Omega-3s and bought the Curcumin to complement my Omega-3s to gain more heart health benefits. I think this is way better than the other brand of Tumeric we had been taking.
I have arthritis in my knee. I just started taking Curcumin 19 days ago. I can already tell a difference in the stiffness in the back of my knee. It is not totally gone away but I do not have to stretch my leg out now before I get up and walk.
I bought curcumin recently and added to my vitamin regiment. Dr. O’Keefe says it helps with inflammation and that is the reason I added it. Heart disease runs in my family and I want to be heart healthy and not have health issues as my parents did. Thanks Cardiotabs.
My wife has been using for 30 days and thinks it may be helping with her knee pain. She takes it twice a day and has no complaints about the taste.
I started using Curcumin right away when Cardio Tabs added it to their supplements. It is excellent product and so good for you. It helps inflammation and we all need it.
I have only read medical reviews of this supplement which are very intriguing and encouraging. In that my father just died of Alzheimer’s And heart failure I am looking for support products for brain and joint support which this product might address for me. Thank you
Before taking curcumin I spent most of my time at home sitting in an easy chair, listening to Rush Limbaugh or doing my taxes, dreading the onset of Summer and the mowing season. Now, I am looking forward to yard work
Easy to take and is tasteless. Very simple
I’ve never had much success with Tumeric before, but these have done wonders for helping me support healthy inflammation levels
I have been taking curcumin for 2 months and I can definitely tell the difference of the level of pain that I have in my hands. Will continue to use the product.I give it a 5 star rating.
I am just finishing my first bottle and have found it very helpful with my knees. The pain is much less, and I have even begun an exercise regiment the last week.
I had knee cartilage issues and started taking Curcumin about a month ago and I am back running and playing tennis without any pains. I have recommended it to my friends who also have knee pains.
This product seems to make a difference in how my joints feel since I've started taking it 2 months ago. I would suggest you try it and see how it works for you.
i think this helps. i love it.
I absolutely love this product. I am on no regular pain medicine. This product has made me feel a lot better.
I'VE BEEN USING CURCUMIN FOR 30 DAYS NOW AND MY KNEE FEELS MUCH BETTER. I MARCHED ALL OVER EUROPE WITH NO ISSUES AND RARELY TAKE A NSAID ANY MORE. THANKS YOU!!!
This has helped my inflammation 110%! Best product on the market! Thank you so much!
I’ve been on curcumin for about 6 weeks, and I’m already feeling much younger
I have found this product to be helpful, though it is tough to say exactly how much, given I take other Cardiotab products. Still, my trust factor for Cardiotabs is high, and I've read many articles saying this is valuable. So, that makes me believe it is so.
I do not know if you have tried Curcumin but do not miss out on this fabulous supplement. It has helped my lower back pain and my ache joints. I have read such fantastic things about this supplement and so glad Cardio Tabs decided to carry it as part of their supplements.
This is a fabulous product. I have been taking Curcumin for 2 months now and have little or no pain in my back and leg. Thank you so much.
I quit using Curcumin two years ago, from another supplier, and I quit because something didn't seem right about my response. I recently used three months of Curcumin from CardoTabs, and it seems like I have really begun to feel the improvement in knee and toe pain.
My husband and I take this curcumin because it helps curb the inflammation in your body. Our joints ache every now and then and that has improved so much after starting on this product every day. If I'm really aching --sometimes when I eat too much sugar :( , I take two a day. As we are getting up there in age (61) we take for brain function and heart health as well. I like that CardioTabs Curcumin is a nanoparticle formulation and that results in a 30 times greater absorption than other brands. If I'm going to spend money on a supplement, I want the MOST absorption I can get from it!
So glad Cardiotabs starting making Curcumin. I was using another brand and you can definitely tell the quality is much better. It helps with inflammation in your body. The price is very good compared to what I was paying.
My husband's knees are not bothering he as much since he started taking the turmeric curcumin.
I USED ALL CAPSULES FOR MY EYESIGHT. I NOTICED A DECREASED RINGING IN MY EAR. EASY TO SWALLOW. PLUS, JOINTS ARE NOT AS ACHEY.
Just a normal retired soldier and I don’t believe it. Have been taking Curcumin recommended by my Dr. for mental health. After 5 days I have no more knee pain at all. For two years I have been getting injections in both knees and could only walk up and down stairs one at a time. Now I walk up and down normally. Unreal no pain. Stay tuned on mental health. I’m impressed and unbelievable. Works for me. Good Luck
I feel good about the quality of the product. It's helping my inflammatory reactions.
This product is amazing. I can't live without it! I've noticed such a huge difference in how I feel and how my body feels.
Since using Curcumin supplement, I have been able to nearly eliminate the need to take NSAIDs for my chronic neck pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Highly recommend!
Theracurmin is most bioavailable curcumin formula and has a strong evidence base. Cardiotbas Curcumin has significantly helped with healthy inflammation levels and joint pain issues.
We have actually been using Cardiotabs products since shortly after the company came into existence. Mostly cardio sterol. My wife cannot take statins thus the use of Cardiotabs has keep cholesterol under control. We started using the Curcumin because she has Parkinson's and pain from a spinal condition. Thus the Curcumin helps her alertness and relieves some of the inflammation related to the spinal problem.
We feel that Cardiotabs products are more helpful than the same things from other companies.
I have a back injury and after using this product for 30 days, I have noticed an improvement. My pain level is not as high. My doctor recommended that I try this product, and I am very happy that I did.
Curcumin has helped my mobility and decreased pain in my hand and shoulder.
This is very nice product, I purchase every 30 days.
I have been taking this product for 3 mos. I find it helps my back pain, and also knee pain.
This product has become part of my daily regiment. I am a senior, with joint and back pain, I am happy to note substantial improvement with lower back pain, (the result of a serious back injury). I would highly recommend this product!
It does what it's meant to do.
Since taking the Cardiotabs Curcumin, I have noticed an improvement in my knee joint pain which did not happen when I took another brand of curcumin. I highly recommend this product.
Great product! My joints feel great!
This product has helped me with joint and muscle pain. I had tried another brand of turmeric with unsatisfactory results. I was glad to find Cardiotabs Curcumin.
I began using this to support healthy inflammation levels due to ill health. I noticed a difference in pain and body aches.
The dull ache between my shoulders is gone since taking Curcumin. It has also helped my A1C and craving for sugar.
I have a long history of inflammation issues. This is one vitamin I make sure to never run out of as a part of that ongoing battle.
I have used this product for over 3 months. I no longer have the hip pain that has been keeping up at night! I used to turn side to side,every hour or so. Now i sleep all through the night!! I attribute this to my Curcumin! Thank You so much!!!
Again, this is a product that at our ages we find the trust factor continues the many years we've been using your products. this one is no exception. thanks
Great Product, I find this works well for my Joints..
I have been taking curcumin for over a year and love it! My pain is gone! If I have a problem (rare) then I take an extra pill and it is gone!!!
Over time, I test products (on myself) and determine if they appear to have helped me. Data point of one, I know. But the curcumin for me, if nothing else, has made me feel better... it's hard to do a scientific test on one person.
We started using curcumin several months ago on the advice of our doctors. Noticeable increase in alertness and decrease in mental fatigue. Also just feel better. Have decreased the use of ibuprofen for joint aches and pains. We would heartily recommend Cardiotabs Turmeric Curcumin.
At first, I didn't notice a difference after taking this for a few days. One day I noticed how much better my body was feeling, and the regular aches and pains had disappeared. I tried to figure out what might have improved my physical health. Then it occurred to me that the curcumin must have done the trick. There was nothing else that I had done differently in my daily regimen. I will continue to take this as long as I feel so wonderful!
Great product. Both my wife and I have noticed an improvement in joint health and cognitive clarity.
I learned about Cardiotabs and Theracurmin on Peter Attia's podcast with Dr. O'Keefe. Following a deep dive to learn about the benefits of turmeric curcumin and esp. the bioavailability of Theracumin, I placed a subscription order for delivery every 60 days. The process of signing up and ordering was smooth and easy. The first order arrived within a couple of days. It's to soon to tell if Theracumin is benefiting me, but I'm optimistic. And, really impressed with Cardiotabs. I plan to try other products, e.g., Omega-3 soon.
My doctor recommended Cardiotabs Curcumin to address the arthritis pain in my hands...especially in cold weather. I've been taking it for about a month now and have found it to be helpful. The tumeric I was taking before I started Cardiotabs Curcumin didn't seem to be nearly as effective. I definitely will continue taking Curcumin.
Fantastic product, better than other curcumin tried.
My husband takes this everyday. It seems to help his joints. He can tell a difference when he doesn't take it.
I have tried several other brands of curcumin, and feel Cardiotabs is superior to others. My joints, especially knees, say THANK YOU, Cardiotabs!
I have taken this supplement for two weeks and already have noticed a huge benefit. My knees don't hurt after a long run (10+ miles) and I can easily get through a tough plyometric workout without worry. For an active adult this supplement has been very helpful to me and my pursuit of life at my own pace and distance.
I have been taking this product for months and I truly feel like its helping my inflammatory issues I'm having in my legs and feels. I will continue to use.
I have used many brands of curcumin over the years with only minor relief of inflammation in my knees and hips. Although this supplement does not cure the issues causing my inflammation, it is the best at bringing relief and reducing swelling I have ever used. I have taken Cardio tabs curcumin for a year and will continue indefinitely.
This curcumin is one of the only supplements I've ever taken that seems to have a benefit that I can actually feel - improved memory. It's a little expensive but overall a good product.
I can tell the difference when I do not take Curcumin, which does not happen often. Would not discontinue this item.
My doctor recently suggested I start taking Curcumin for the brain and memeory benefits. I have used it for several months. I also see an anti-inflammatory benefit. I have not had to take any over-the-counter meds for pain.
Since taking Cardiotabs Curcumin, my husband and I have both noticed a higher level of alertness and sharpness of memory, which is so important at our age (both 68). Very comparable in price to other brands or even less.
