What is Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95?
Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95 is a supplement that contains pure turmeric extract. Turmeric is said to provide a wide range of health benefits like reducing inflammation, relieving depression, burning fat and promoting heart health by lowering cholesterol. It is also believed to relieve digestive ailments. We evaluate this product based on the dosage of turmeric extract provided and the customer support that the manufacturer offers.
Turmeric extract is the only active ingredient present in this product. Turmeric extract contains many antioxidants like curcumin. Antioxidants react with substances in the body called free radicals. Free radicals build-up due to energy production and other chemical reactions in the cell. They can also come from pollution in the environment. When the levels are high, they react with cell membranes to produce substances that cause inflammation and they react with DNA. This process also has a complicated link with cholesterol and blood vessel damage. When free radicals react with DNA they can begin the process of cancer formation.
The manufacturer is slightly incorrect in saying that turmeric burns fat because there is no evidence to support that at the moment. However, there is evidence to support the fact that it reduces the rate of fat storage in fat cells. This is because it slows the uptake of glucose which is needed to form fat.
Curcumin is also able to increase levels of a chemical signal in the brain that reduces depression.
It is suggested to take one capsule per day with food. Each capsule contains 500 mg of turmeric concentrate. This is about half the daily serving that scientific research has determined to be the optimal dosage. This means that there is a chance that this product may be ineffective as there simply isn’t enough turmeric to cause the health effects that have been seen in the clinical trials.
What is the Cost?
There are two pricing options available depending on whether the customer wants 60 capsules or 120 capsules. 60 capsules can be purchased online for $13.58 and 120 for $18.70. Customers can save up to 5% on the price if they subscribe for regular orders.
The manufacturer has the relevant accreditation for several steps in the manufacturing process including Current Good Manufacturing Practices, Proposition 65 and DSHEA accreditation. The manufacturer also offers a 30 day money back guarantee if the customer is unhappy for any reason. This only applies to products bought through the manufacturer.
Our Final Review of Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95
Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95 contains well-researched scientific ingredients and is available at a reasonable price. We also commend this manufacturer for having a guarantee but we believe it is slightly too short to test the product sufficiently. We also found the dosage of the ingredients in this product to be a bit low compared to some clinical trials that have tested their effects. We believe this supplement to be adequate but we have also observed better supplements out there which contain the correct dosage and offer a longer guarantee.
