Best turmeric products

The quest is on for the best turmeric products on the market and let us say that there are a LOT of products. Just go to Whole Foods and you will find an aisle full of Turmeric supplements and the decision can be daunting when trying to pick the perfect one. Luckily we have rounded up our top favorites and compared them based on quality, purity, and price. While our top favorite brands were Gaia, Enagic, and Wild Harvest, we explain below why Enagic’s Japanese Ukon Turmeric (which you can find here) topped the charts in terms of quality, purity and price:

Enagic’s Japanese Organic UKON Turmeric is the highest quality supplement and is:

  • Made of the highest quality turmeric strains – 100% Organic, free of all pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides
