Why is Dr. Matthew Turmeric Curcumin So Special?

Here are 7 reasons why Dr. Matthew #1 Turmeric Curcumin with Ginger is superior to other turmeric products:

1.  15X More Curcuminoids Guarantee Noticeable Health Benefits.

Unlike most other products which deliver an ineffective amount of curcuminoids, our product delivers an effective amount of active curcuminoids—one of the highest available in the market. Curcuminoids are the key pharmacologically active substances that are responsible for the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory activities and other therapeutic properties of turmeric. The concentration of curcuminoids in most Turmeric products is 4-5%. This means that when you ingest a typical 1,000mg Turmeric pill, you are actually getting only 40-50mg of curcuminoids. This amount is too low to confer any health benefits.

We are different because our Turmeric extract is standardized to 95% total curcuminoids. Therefore, you get 713mg of active curcuminoids per serving. That’s a 15-20x amplification above and beyond what is typically found in nature. Hence, one pill of Dr. Matthew Turmeric Curcumin provides the dosage equivalency of almost 14,000 mg (14 grams) of regular turmeric powder!

2.  Whole Root (not Just Curcuminoids) Ensures You Get the Full Spectrum Health Benefits.

Our product also contains organic Turmeric root powder. Unlike the extract, the root powder contains a blend of 200+ naturally occurring components (i.e beta-carotene, vitamin C, calcium, flavonoids, fiber, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc, turmerones, and essential turmeric oils), which have unique therapeutic properties, different from these of curcumin. It’s noteworthy that some of these substances have a synergistic effect with curcumin. For example, scientists recently found that essential turmeric oils contained in turmeric powder increase the bioactivity of curcumin.

Therefore, in order to ensure you receive the complete spectrum of health benefits of this ancient spice, we have combined the unprecedentedly high amount of curcumin in our turmeric extract with the plethora of natural substances contained in our whole turmeric organic root powder. The latter, not only enhances the bioactivity and overall effect of curcumin, it also delivers its own unique therapeutic effects.

Why Dr. Matthew Turmeric Curcumin makes a difference:

It may:

  • Support healthy joints, cartilage, eyes, skin & hair*
  • Alleviate occasional joint & back pain associated with intense exercise*
  • Enhance mood, memory & brain function*
  • Improve digestion & reduce symptoms of indigestion, such as bloating and gas*
  • Promote heart health & blood circulation & maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range*
  • Enhance the immune & nervous systems*


3.  20X Higher Bioavailability Ensures Your Body Absorbs All Turmeric Components

Did you know that the human body cannot easily absorb turmeric? Adding turmeric to a cup of tea or some hot water may enhance absorption, but you would still have to ingest very high doses to achieve desired blood levels.

Be aware that Turmeric does not dissolve in water. It’s a fat soluble substance. Therefore it’s best to take a turmeric curcumin supplement with a meal containing fats or oils. This ensures that the turmeric compounds are absorbed from the gut and not eliminated as waste.

In addition to the low absorption, Turmeric faces one more obstacle on its way to our blood. Our body breaks down turmeric compounds in the liver and the gut. As a result, very small amounts of intact curcumin actually reach the blood circulation to confer health benefits. The low absorption coupled with the fast breakdown makes the majority (90%) of curcumin end up in the feces. That means, it’s totally wasted since it never made it to the blood.

Enter black pepper—nature’s bio-enhancer! To increase absorption, we’ve combined our high-potency turmeric with piperine (a key compound found in black pepper fruits). Studies have proven that piperine can increase blood levels of curcuminoids by 2000%, dramatically enhancing the bioactivity of the golden spice.

How does piperine improve turmeric curcumin’s bioavailability? Piperine inhibits the metabolic breakdown of turmeric compounds in the gut and the liver. In other words, it helps the active compounds in turmeric stay intact for a longer period of time. Because of this,  the amount of active turmeric compounds that remain in the body are considerably higher (in other words, the bioavailability is higher), which increases dramatically the chances that turmeric’s therapeutic effects will be manifested.


4.  Free of Heavy Metals

There are many reports of lead contamination in turmeric supplements. We test our incoming ingredients rigorously to ensure there is no detectable trace of lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury, as well as yeast, mold and common microbial pathogens. Our latest lab analysis is available upon request.

6.  Contains Ginger, one of the healthiest medicinal herbs on the planet

Ginger and Turmeric are a pain-fighting duo.  Scientific evidence suggests that both rhizomes contain active ingredients that can provide at least some relief to those suffering from a number of painful conditions, from arthritis and gastric discomfort to migraine headaches and post-surgical pain. What’s more, research shows that the active compounds in ginger may help protect the lining of the stomach from damage caused by conventional pain killers.

Dr. Matthew #1 Turmeric Curcumin contains 200mg of organic Ginger root (Zinziber officinale) per serving, which may help:

  • Reduce symptoms of nausea and vomiting*
