My Ultra Pure Turmeric Review – Too Weak To Work For Me
It’s time for my Ultra Pure Turmeric review, a supplement that I found by chance and that really caught my eye immediately. What seems so special about it? Well, it costs less than $10 and it has some really promising ingredients.
But is it as good as it seems? Unfortunately, when saw its ingredients’ doses, I started losing my initial enthusiasm.
So can this product really treat the pain, despite having very low quantities of turmeric? Or it’s only a scam? Let me tell you about my experience with it.
Note: This review is based on my experience with this supplement, so it may or may not agree with other reviews you find. I am not praising/criticizing the product or the company, I am simply telling my opinion about this supplement and how it worked for me
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Ultra Pure Turmeric from Angry Supplements
Quantity : 60 capsules
Best Actual Price: $9.49
Where I Bought It From: Amazon
Worth The Price?: Not really. It’s definitely not a scam because it’s really cheap, so it’s not a waste of money. But I still wouldn’t buy it again. It contains a pretty low dose of turmeric and it didn’t do much for my arthritis pain
My Rating: 5.20/ 10.00
What I Liked About It
- It contains really good ingredients on paper: turmeric, turmeric extract 95% and bioperine. That’s the combination that works best for my chronic pain
- There’s also bioperine, so it has a big advantage over most products from the market
- At this price, it’s literally a bargain. It’s one of the cheapest turmeric supplements I’ve seen
What I Didn’t Like About It
- The ingredients have pretty low doses (from what I read, it’s less than 50% of the recommended dose – sorry if I’m wrong)
- For me it didn’t do much in terms of pain: it only decreased it with one number on the pain scale (I went from 7 to 6)
- It doesn’t work very fast, as you need a few weeks to tell the difference, depending on the case (I needed 3-4 weeks)
- The label recommends taking the pills 20-30 minutes before eating, which is a big mistake. I did this, and most of the times I got really nauseous. I don’t know if it was just me or not, but that’s a side effect of many turmeric supplements
- For people like me, who have a chronic arthritis, it’s not a very good choice. However, it should work if you have a mild inflammation that is only temporary
The Ingredients Look Good At First Sight, But…
One of the main reasons why I decided to give this supplement a chance was because of its ingredients. In fact, that’s why it grabbed my attention.
In my opinion, it contains the combination every turmeric supplement should contain: Turmeric Powder + Curcuminoides + Bioperine. Besides having the perfect substances inside, it also has an amazing price, only $10.
Does this sound too good to be true? Well, it definitely is.
So what’s the bad part behind these ingredients? Unfortunately, it’s their quantities. From what I know (and you can correct me if you know better), an average turmeric supplement should have around 1000-1500 mg per serving, in order to produce a good pain relief.
Well, when I looked at Ultra Pure Turmeric’s doses, what did I see? There are only 450 mg of turmeric powder, which is less than 50% of the minimum dose.
Now, that’s not a bad thing for people with minor inflammation. This dose is enough to soothe their pain, at least for a while. But what about people with chronic inflammation, like me?
I tried some supplements with over 1000 mg per serving that didn’t help me much. So unfortunately, half of that quantity isn’t going to help me at all on paper.
I Love That They Didn’t Forget About Bioperine
Unfortunately, it’s not only turmeric that doesn’t come in a good dose. It’s also the other 2 ingredients that do me so much good.
There are 50 mg of turmeric extract (or curcuminoides 95%). That is also pretty little, but that’s not as crucial as the dose of turmeric powder.
Also, most supplements with bioperine contain around 10-15 mg of this substances, while here there are only 5. However, I’m simply very happy to see that they have this essential ingredient, unlike most products from the market.
Besides, considering the average doses are cut to half in this supplement, those 5 mg of bioperine are probably more than enough. As there are only 450 mg of turmeric, 5 mg of bioperine can do its job well enough.
So what exactly does that mean?
That from these 450 mg of turmeric, our body will absorb close to 100%, thanks to bioperine. From this point of view, there’s nothing to complain about – this supplement is perfect!
There are lots of supplements without bioperine, so from the 1000 mg they contain, only 200-300 get absorbed. So compared to those, Ultra Pure Turmeric is already one step ahead.
Why I Don’t Take It As They Recommend (Before Meal)
That was one of the things that really shocked me about this supplement.
I’ve tried more than 100 different brands of turmeric before and they all had the same problem. If I took the pills on an empty stomach, I felt really nauseous for a while. That was available for more than 95% of the turmeric supplements I tried.
If there’s one thing I learned about turmeric, it’s surely this – don’t take it on an empty stomach or before eating well. Many people know that turmeric can lead to nausea, especially when you’re taking it on an empty stomach. It’s not something that only happens to me.
So if you ever take any turmeric pills, don’t ever take them before eating before meals. Not even if the label suggests it. Obviously, you can try and see if you want, it’s up to you.
Yes, nausea is not the worst thing in the world, but why experience it when you can be fine?
My Background Before Trying This Supplement
What Convinced Me To Try It: I pretty much bought it for the ingredients and the very low price. It had really good ingredients at first sight, but when I took a closer look, the doses were way too low for my kind of condition.
So obviously, I shouldn’t make great expectations from this supplement. It could only improve my pain with 1-2 numbers at most. But reality and theory are always different, so I had to try it for real before I reach any conclusion.
My Initial Pain: I was suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for over 10 years, so pain was always present in my body. The worst areas were my knees and my hands, where my pain was usually a 7 (that is really bad, believe me).
On the other hand, shoulders were probably the least painful area for me. I had severe pain there quite rarely. But when you have rheumatoid arthritis, you always have chronic pain. So what I meant was that my shoulders weren’t in deep pain constantly, only in rare situations.
I also had hand stiffness every morning, which would last about 50 minutes to an hour, depending on the day.
My Experience With Ultra Pure Turmeric
Week 1: I started the treatment with this supplement directly with one pills twice a day. In other situations, I would take one pill per day and then move to 2 pills if nothing happened.
Well, I didn’t do it this time because the dose was already pretty small, so I said it wasn’t even worth it.
In the first week, I couldn’t tell any difference, but that was common for many products. You usually have to take them for 2-3 weeks to notice an improvement. Well, that’s exactly what I did.
Week 2: After about 10 days with this supplement, I noticed my hands were not as stiff as before when waking up. It wasn’t like it I could move them easier or anything, but they would get softer faster than before. So my stiffness was decreasing in time, not in intensity.
That meant the pills were working.
As for my pain, I still couldn’t bend my knees without feeling like burning. My hands weren’t much better either, except the morning stiffness.
Week 3: In the third week, I did notice an improvement. My hand pain started to get less sharp and I even felt that it wasn’t as strong as before.
I could give you a number, but it wouldn’t be that impressive anymore. Let’s say I went from a 7 to a 6.5, which doesn’t sound much, but for chronic pain, it really is so. These were good news overall, even though there wasn’t any big improvement.
Week 6: I skipped week 4 and 5 because I could only say the same things. My pain continued to decrease up to a 6, but it pretty much stayed there. It was the same in the 6th week. My hands and knees felt a bit better, but the difference wasn’t huge.
I still couldn’t bend down, walk properly by myself or do everyday activities without my usual hacks.
2 Months Conclusions
So at the end of my treatment, it was time to draw some real conclusions about this supplement.
In 4 weeks, it had decreased my pain with one number on the pain scale. As I said before, not all parts of my body hurt in the same way. My knees and my hands were the worst parts, so obviously the pain was still worse there, even with this treatment.
On the other hand, my hip pain wasn’t excruciating before, but it was feeling even better with these pills.
That’s the Conclusion #1: This supplement decreased my pain with one number, depending on the area. My knee pain went from a 7 to a 6, while my hip pain that was a 3, got to a 2.
I got these results in the 4th week, but my pain didn’t decrease any further. It stayed the same from the 4th week until the 8th week. That leads me to the second conclusion.
Conclusion #2: As long as I took the pills, my pain stayed decreased with one number, but it never went any lower. I could take them forever and my pain wouldn’t go any lower.
When the pain doesn’t decrease anymore, it’s a typical sign that that’s the most you can get from this supplement. I’ve experienced that many times in the past, so I know very well.
Conclusion #3: That’s the best improvement you can get from this supplement. I’m not saying that’s available for everyone, but if you have severe pain, I don’t think you can go lower than one number with it. I’m saying this because of the ingredients. But I may be wrong, so if you are an exception from this rule, please let me know and I will gladly change my third conclusion.
My Final Verdict – Is Ultra Pure Turmeric Worth Buying?
Short Answer: Only if you use it for other purposes. As an anti-inflammatory for chronic joint pain, it can’t reduce the pain properly. If your pain is really mild (under 2), then it will probably help. So it may or may not be worth buying, depending on your case.
Overall, this product is far from being a scam. It contains the right ingredients, but their quantities are simply too low to work for everyone. Unless you’re using it for a minor inflammation, it won’t help you tremendously.
The best thing about it is probably its price, as it’s one of the cheapest supplements you can find. But instead of paying $10 and getting a minor improvement, I personally prefer to pay $20 and get a permanent relief. That’s just my opinion, so you are free to choose any type of supplement you wish.
The purpose of this review was to tell you the truth about Turmeric Ultra Pure, which I did.
Would I buy it again? I personally would not, for sure. I have rheumatoid arthritis and my pain is very severe, so this kind of low-dose supplements never helped me. If you have chronic pain, you know what I’m talking about. You always need something stronger than 450 mg of turmeric.
So if you think about purchasing this supplement, consider what kind of pain you have and see if it’s worth it or not.
