High strength, more potent and more absorbable formula than standard turmeric supplements
Contains active ingredient curcumin - 200mg of Curcuminoids per capsule, including Curcumin the key active ingredient in Turmeric.
Turmeric, curcuminoids, and curcumin...these are not interchangeable terms. Curcumin is a small, potent, and important part of turmeric. This distinction has implications when looking to select a supplement.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a distinctive yellow spice, part of the ginger family (Zingiberacear), that has been used for thousands of years in Southeast Asia, China, and India for cooking and medicinal uses. Although the traditional uses of turmeric are still used today, advances in modern science have revealed 3 types of curcuminoids to be the key active compounds responsible for many beneficial properties of turmeric.
Some "turmeric supplements" on the market are simply culinary turmeric powder packed in capsules - that's not an exaggeration. You can identify such products by reviewing their labels properly. If the label does not explicitly declare the exact concentration of curcuminoids in milligrams, then you are better off having a curry instead of that supplement. And that's not a joke, you could actually get more curcuminoids from a typical portion of curry than consuming a whole bottle of culinary turmeric powder capsules masquerading as turmeric supplement.
The most studied and potent of the 3 types of curcuminoids in Turmeric is called Curcumin. Turmeric’s treasure lies in curcumin’s properties which have been scientifically studied around the world. Most brands do not quantify the level of Curcuminoids in their products because their formulas contain very low levels of Curcuminoids. Wellgard Ultimate Turmeric 95 contains 200mg of Curcuminoids per capsule – that’s unrivalled potency and transparency!
200mg of Curcuminoids is the maximum level considered acceptable for daily intake, based on EFSA advice.

Turmeric is a plant and it's the roots of the plant that are used to make the spice that is used in cooking and herbal drinks. Curcumin is the naturally occurring compound within the plant's roots that give it it's bright yellow colour and is known as a carotenoid compound. It is also a very strong antioxidant.
