The manufacturer claims that turmeric can help to support proper activity of critical enzymes that are naturally present during typical biological stress. They also claim that a combination of turmeric and bromelain can help maintain healthy joint tissues which can be over-stressed. Read our review below to see what NOW Turmeric & Bromelain can offer you and if it is an effective dietary supplement.
- Turmeric Root Extract (standardized to a minimum of 95% Curcuminoids) – 600 mg
- Bromelain (from pineapple) – 300 mg
The concentrations above are for a serving of 2 capsules. NOW Turmeric & Bromelain contains a standardized 95% Curcuminoids derived from the root of the turmeric plant. Furthermore it provides Bromelain which claims to help reinforce normal immune system support. Unfortunately, the product does not contain 20 mg BioPerine which is scientifically proven to help increase absorption.
The manufacturer recommends that the user take 1 to 2 capsules two times a day. It should preferably be taken with food. Each serving of 2 capsules only provides 600 mg whereas 4 capsules provide 1200 mg. Based on clinical studies the recommended safe and effective dosage is 1000 mg. Too little may cause the product to be ineffective and too much may be dangerous for your health.
NOW Turmeric & Bromelain comes in a bottle of 45-capsules. This bottle will not last an entire month and you will need to purchase two bottles in order to supplement your body as recommended by the manufacturer. It can be purchased online from the official website. A bottle will cost $27.99. There are no discounts or bundle deals offered and as you need to purchase two bottles a month, it will become very pricey.
After studying the manufacturer’s official website, we could not find any evidence of a money-back guarantee. A manufacturer must be very confident to be able to back their product with a solid guarantee. However, lack thereof may indicate that the manufacturer is not very confident in the effectiveness of the product. Nonetheless, first time customers will not be able to test the product and return it for a full refund if it does not work. Thus, the customer will be left at risk.
