Turmeric As a Powder
Unfortunately, turmeric is known to be one of the most adulterated spices in the world. Many powders bought in US grocery stores are contaminated with lead which is thought to be a significant source of lead poisoning among households. This is especially true for spices imported from India and Bangladesh. They also often contain artificial coloring and cheap substitutes like rice powder. If you’re going to use powder, make sure it’s at least sourced from USA. At Elixir Shots our turmeric is sourced from our family farm in Kauai, called Secret Beach Organics. It’s a 100% organic, regenerative, family owned farm.
Turmeric in Pills
This may be the most convenient form next to turmeric shots, but it is also the most dangerous. Most people assume that when they buy a supplement, what’s listed on the ingredients is what’s in the pill. This is not always true. Over 90% of supplements on the market (at your general drug or health food store) either contain contaminants not listed or do not contain the ingredients the label claims to contain! Many of the contaminants are downright dangerous - including heavy metals, amphetamines, and other pharmaceutical drugs. Many of them are also contaminated with mold and bacteria. 50,000 Americans are harmed every year, many of them hospitalized for kidney or liver failure. This is unfortunately because the Dietary Supplement Industry is extremely poorly regulated in the United States. In fact, the only quality control measures required are for the company producing the product to check their own product quality! No oversight! If you’re going to take a supplement, make sure it’s been third-party verified - meaning another independent organization tested it for quality control. Generally if it has the “USP” label on it, it should be safe. Or, look it its rating on Consumerlab.com
