"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."
"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."
