This is my first time purchasing Turmeric supplements. I bought these for my boyfriend to try as he is always complaining about his back, muscle, and joint pain. I like that these supplements include the black pepper, which helps with absorption. I’ve noticed that he is in less pain, slightly, that he was before taking this supplement. He suffers from chronic back pain, so anything that takes the edge off his pain is nice. These capsules are easy to swallow and don’t have an after taste like other supplements. I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
