Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie69 Best Turmeric supplement out there!
Excellent product and value plus it includes black pepper for absorption. Not many competitors provide this at this price point. When Swanson offers BOGO on this, you can't beat it. I always stock up!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tuckersmom Not so much
I thought I would try this product because the one with cayenne was a little hard on my stomach. I am going back because I could see results with it, where I am not seeing any with this product. I will just make sure I only take the one with cayenne and garlic with food.

i have read that you need to take tumeric with black pepper for full effect so having this combination is great for my husband and me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lomaint69 Great way to get Turmeric!
The combination of Black Pepper and Turmeric seems to have a synergistic effect, so it's nice to find this compound formula. I am in the process of growing my own Turmeric but I will continue to use this product for the foreseeable future. I take this in the mornings with all of my other, 'get the day off to a good start' supplements.

I believe turmeric with black pepper absorbs
more than the regular turmeric which is still good
but when you have more problems it is best to
take the turmeric with black pepper. It works
better for me.

I was looking for a product like this one that saves me some time because the pepper is already added into the capsule. I am so glad I found them at Swanson for such a great price!

I have found that using this product it is much easier for me to move around. Went without for a month and noticed the difference.

Having read via several sources that one should take turmeric with black pepper for better absorption, am glad to see this product offered by Swanson. And especially when they have a BOGO for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SnobbyImpulseShopper Good Value with Necessary Absorption Enhancher
Given the studies showing the potentially diverse range of health benefits of curcumin found in turmeric, this product is automatically off to a good start, especially being organically sourced.
A few studies have also revealed that turmeric absorption and bioavailibility is relatively poor, but like with many other supplements, the addition of piperine enhances that absorption and measured serum detection time.
The dose is rather low when compared to therapeutic and test doses, so I usually take two of these and separate Meriva tablets.
The effectiveness question is somewhat funny given how silently so many supplements tend to work on a cellular level. That said, I have noticed a difference, especially used in combination with a few other supplements.
It's worth noting that what you're paying for here is literally two table spices in capsule form. There are other curcumin concentrates and isolates that will be higher in curcuminoids per dose, but that doesn't meant similar benefit can't be achieved with more of this. So is it worth the money? In my estimation, yes. I wouldn't be taking turmeric that wasn't full-spectrum, organic or without piperine.

Though I cannot say there was annything wrong or bad about this product, I can only say my expectations were not met. I have been taking the plain Turmeric I get here from Swansons and have been very pleased with the price as well as the benefits of using Turmeric.
My expectation was that with the addition of the Black Pepper extract with the Turmeric it would have a greater absorbsion capability into your system, potentially allowing for a reduced dosage . Personally I did not find that to be my experience. Given the additional cost and no perceived improvement in the effects of the suppliment, I will just continue to use the plain 'ol Turmeric I have been using for a year plus.
