What is Now Foods Turmeric & Bromelain?
The following review is for a product called Now Foods Turmeric & Bromelain. It is a dietary supplement that is specially designed to support healthy joint tissue. The manufacturer claims that the combination of turmeric and bromelain are effective in maintaining healthy joint tissues faced with sporadic excessive stress or everyday use.
- Turmeric Root Extract
Turmeric is known to be helpful in a variety of health problems, from arthritis, digestive issues, cholesterol to skin disorders and cancer. Bromelain is also useful in arthritis, and other health issues like inflammation, sinuses, ulcers and cancer.
90mg of bromelain taken 2 to 3 times a day has been used and studied in scientific research for arthritis, while 500 mg of turmeric four times a day has also been scientifically studied. We see that this product contains 300 mg of bromelain and 600 mg of turmeric, which is more than the suggested daily dose. This is a concern because these ingredients can have some side effects when taken in large doses.
Other ingredients: Stearic Acid, Silica, Magnesium Stearate, and Cellulose.
The recommended dosage is 1 to 2 capsules taken with food daily.
Individuals with a known medical condition, pregnant and breastfeeding individuals, those who are taking medication or plan to have a surgery should consult their healthcare practitioner before taking this supplement.
What is the Cost?
Now Foods Turmeric and Bromelain can be purchased through the manufacturer’s website for $27.99 for 90 capsules. It is also available from online third-party retailers.
We searched through the entire manufacturer’s website looking for information on guarantee. We were very disappointed when we found that there is not any. It is almost impossible to have faith in the product that is not supported by a money-back guarantee, because this points out to us that the manufacturer themselves are not sure of their product’s effectiveness.
Our Final Review of Now Foods Turmeric & Bromelain
Now Foods Turmeric & Bromelain could be a beneficial supplement for improving and maintaining healthy joints, and preventing arthritis. The ingredients that are contained in the product have been scientifically studied and were proven to be effective in managing such issues. However, we are concerned about this product particularly because it contains high levels of both ingredients. Research shows that overdosing turmeric and bromelain could cause nausea, diarrhea, allergies and stomach discomfort. The price of the product is more expensive than most of the similar products on the market. To make things even worse, the manufacturer does not offer any form of guarantee, such as a money-back or satisfaction guarantee. This means that if this supplement does not work for you, you cannot return the product to the manufacturer for a full refund. It also means that the manufacturer has little or no confidence on their product. Buying it could put you at risk of losing your money, while you might not even benefit from it. Therefore, we recommend that you rather buy a product that is backed by the manufacturer’s guarantee, and one that contains safe dosage of the ingredients.
