This is a review of Dr. Mercola Curcumin Advanced. Turmeric is just becoming popular in Western culture. However, in traditional Indian medicine, turmeric is prescribed for just about everything — from cuts and grazes, to respiratory ailments, liver disease, gas, bloating, digestive illness, the heart, as an anti-septic and more.

We decided to take a closer look at this product to see if it really is as great as the manufacturer claims.


This is a natural health product, not a medication which will appeal to many people seeking out alternative treatments for their ailments. This product contains Curcumin Root, 500 mg. No other active ingredients were provided on the product website. It seems like some artificial ingredients may be used in the capsule formulation though it was actually quite difficult to discern this from the product website.  It definitely seems like the full picture was not provided online which makes it tough to accurately assess the product quality.


This product has a very poor and incomplete website.  As such, the suggested use for this product was not provided online.  You may need to contact the manufacturer directly for this information. Again, this may be difficult as full contact information was not provided online.

Side Effects

No known or reported side effects were listed online.  However, this really doesn’t mean much since the website is so incomplete. However, similar Turmeric products are considered safe for long term use. Generally speaking Turmeric products have no known or reported side effects.  Make sure to contact a doctor if you have any questions.  Also you should discontinue use immediately if you experience any allergic reactions to the individual ingredients.


This product costs $72.95 on the company website.  This price is very high when compared to other products on the market.  It is unclear how long a bottle should last because they do not indicate specific dosage information online.


No information about a product guarantee is currently available on the product website. It is disappointing that this product does not seem to offer the security of a money back guarantee. Many similar products offer money back guarantees or return policies.  However, the website does not specifically state that there is not a guarantee so your best bet is probably to contact the company directly and discuss the issue with them if you are interested in trying out this product.


We noticed some pros and cons when reviewing Dr. Mercola Curcumin Advanced.  This product comes from a reputable company which is a definite pro.  However, the product formulation seems to weaker than some other products we have researched and not all of the ingredients are even listed online. Also, this product does not seem to come with a guarantee. It is sold in a large quantity which is a big risk to take without the security of a guarantee. For these reasons we cannot recommend this as the best Turmeric product on the market today.
