Excellent Turmeric.

"Tumeric is better absorbed with oil. Having it in this phytosome encapsulation means I don't have to open up the capsule and mix it with olive oil."

Excellent product at a great price
 July 22, 2013
"I have used other turmeric extracts containing curcumin but have found them to be much less effective than this phytosome formulation which is more completely absorbed. This variety is more cost effective than a larger quantity of the non-phytosome brands. It is a cutting edge product that Vitacost has made affordable."

Features Meriva at great price
 May 12, 2013
"As a longtime customer of Vitacost, I am always impressed at how many brands and products are available. I have been using Curcumin Extract for at least a year now, and Vitacost's product contains the essential Meriva brand extract. Vitacost's own brand of Turmeric Phytosome Curcumin capsules are of high quality and competitive price. I would like to see all Vitacost products offer vegetarian capsules and gelcaps. I highly recommend this supplement."

"I'd been taking another brand of Meriva, and found out it was dangerous... GMO!
I called VC CS, and they emailed a reply that this was Non-GMO!
