Curcumin and turmeric are often spoken about as if they are the same thing. This is not the case. Curcumin is just one component of the whole turmeric herb – turmeric actually provides over 200 different, potentially beneficial, compounds.
Some medical herbalists prefer to use whole herb products, whilst others suggest that high curcumin extracts are best – Natures Aid Turmeric is therefore the best of both worlds.
The biggest issue with Turmeric is ensuring that it is absorbed from the gut – the important ingredient for this is fat. This is why Turmeric should always be taken with a meal.
