Frequently Asked Questions

Turmeric represents one of the most effective botanical ingredient for health purpose. Many high-standard studies showed that it has significant benefits. Turmeric contains bioactive compounds called curcuminoids and notably curcumin, with powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Studies have highlighted that turmeric’s benefits might be attributed to many more curcuminoids metabolites rather than free-curcumin only, supporting the relevance of each individual curcuminoid absorption to benefit from turmeric activity. As an example, several studies have shown that tetrahydrocurcumin (one of the main reduced metabolites of curcumin) is associated with higher anti-oxidant properties than free-curcumin.

Proven health benefits of turmeric are the result of curcuminoids and their metabolites exhibiting various properties.


Turmeric is a spice originating from the curcuma plant’s rhizome, known to give its yellow color and earthy/bitter taste to the curry. However, because of their low curcuminoids content (1-6% curcuminoids) and poor bioavailability, the turmeric powder have to be consumed in very large quantity on daily basis to provide some health benefits. Therefore main limitation would be high dose & strong taste resulting in poor applicability. Typically, physiological effect is comprised around 1500-2000mg of Standard Turmeric Extract (95% curcuminoids) or an equivalent 44-120g of dried turmeric powder.

Thanks to its bioequivalence proven, a much smaller dose of 300mg of TurmiPure Gold® delivers the same blood level of curcuminoids, offering an appealing alternative to the limitation of a 44-120g of turmeric powder.


TurmiPure Gold® is the world’s first bioequivalent turmeric at a low dose of 300mg. Its innovative and safe formulation highly enhances the bioavailability of curcuminoids, in addition to being instantly water dispersible. A cost-effective dose of 300mg of TurmiPure Gold® delivers as many curcuminoids in blood as 1922mg of standard turmeric 95% curcuminoids.

TurmiPure Gold® the world’s first bioequivalent turmeric is the result of 5 years of research.

  • its bioavailability has been evaluated in the strongest comparative human pharmacokinetic study to date in 30 healthy subjects, clinically demonstrating bioequivalence at a low dose
  • its safety has been evaluated in pre-clinical and clinical studies:
    1. using the standard OCDE in vitro genotoxicity tests and in vivo oral toxicity studies in rats, supporting its safe use in foods and beverages for the general population.
    2. in the first and only clinical safety trial in 60 healthy volunteers during 5 weeks. Results showed that TurmiPure Gold® was well tolerated and safe in healthy adults.

Curcuminoids are a family of active compounds within turmeric, a spice originating from the rhizome of the curcuma plant, known to give its yellow color to curry.
Curcuminoids comprise curcumin, demethoxycurcumin (DMC) and bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC), parents compounds in the roots, as well as their metabolites.
Curcumin is the primary curcuminoid in turmeric and the compound for which most studies have been conducted.


As demonstrated in our pharmaco-kinetic study, adding black pepper extract (piperine) to turmeric extracts does not increase the absorption of curcuminoids nor free-curcumin into the body.


A dose of 300mg of TurmiPure Gold® delivers as many curcuminoids in blood as 1922mg of standard turmeric 95% curcuminoids.
TurmiPure Gold® is made of only 4 natural ingredients that can be organic certified. It means that it does not contain polysorbate, piperine, nanoparticles and is guaranteed free of excipients and additives.
In addition, we conducted a strong safety research program that has demonstrated that a daily oral consumption of up to 1000mg of TurmiPure Gold® for 5 weeks was well tolerated and safe in healthy adults.


Our pharmacokinetic clinical study showed that maximal effectiveness is reached with a small dose of 300mg of TurmiPure Gold®. 300mg of TurmiPure Gold® delivers the same amount of curcuminoids as an effective high dose of market standards.
For these reasons, 300mg is the recommended daily dose.


A cost-effective dose of 300mg of TurmiPure Gold® delivers as many curcuminoids in blood as 1922mg of standard turmeric 95% curcuminoids. Numerous studies have documented the effectiveness of curcuminoids in alleviating joint pain, especially in osteoarthritis patients.


To manufacture TurmiPure Gold®, Naturex part of Givaudan has developed a superior and fully transparent organic and conventional supply chain of turmeric rhizomes right in the heart of India, the birth place of turmeric.
Thanks to our experts and agronomists supporting Good Agricultural Practices and Sustainable Farming trainings, we offer an optimum quality turmeric with 100% Physical Traceability from Field.
