Turmeric is a golden, strongly flavoured spice. The Turmeric we know is the root of the Curcuma longa plant which belongs to the same family as Ginger, hence its similarity in shape and colour. The Curcuma longa plant grows very low to the ground at maximum heights of 3m, with a rhizomatous root below the ground and flowers growing off the stem above the soil. To obtain the curcumin, the active compound within Turmeric, the root of the plant is cut, dried and powdered. Turmeric is commonly used in India, particularly at rituals and other ceremonial occasions for its vibrant colour. The root is traditionally used for cooking and to treat several ailments, such as sores, skin diseases and wounds.
The primary function of Turmeric is its role within the digestive system. The root stimulates and maintains feelings of hunger when appetite is low, such as when the stomach is unsettled. Turmeric prompts the secretion of digestive fluids which aid the return of feelings of hunger. It is also suggested that Turmeric provides health benefits to the liver, joints, bones and upper respiratory tract.

great product - so far so good - keeping my arthritis in my thumbs at bay
I have been taking them 2 weeks, I think my knees are improving, I have stopped taking ibuprofen, so will see.
Bought these because I wanted a tablet and not a capsule. I have difficulty swallowing capsules. These are perfect. Really small and compact.
Delivery was very quick. Full marks for that. Plus, which I love...not fancy OTT packaging. These are packaged in very secure pouches,,not loads of fancy wadding / paper.
I have put up a pic of several tablets on a teaspoon. This will give you an idea of the size,
Once I get near the end of this supply I shall be ordering again..that in itself is high praise.
If I could give 10 stars I would. First class service. Excellent product. I have osteoarthritis in my knees. Really helped pain and movement (skin feels great too!)
I am happy with them
A good fit for purpose product.
Excellent service thanks. Too early to tell if the tablets are working though!
Great service dispatched really quickly and just what I wanted! very helpful company after the sale too!
10 out of 10 highly recommended
have had no problems every thing okay
Beautiful, clean packaging and great product
Very pleased with this product and the service provided
Excellent service. Fast and efficient. I advised my mother to purchase the turmeric tablets and like me, I can say we both notice a difference in our memory. It is a lot quicker and we can recall a lot more things. We both enjoy a healthy diet and exercise regularly. The turmeric tablets gave back our edge to our memories.
Value for money and arrived swiftly.
excellent product & Price looking forward to benefits.
Extra Small tablets easy to swallow that offer three times the amount of tumeric I was using in capsule form. Good quality packaging. Great product
I feel better after using it
Sceptical at first, but nagged by the wife to try them (she had read something about it in an article in her magazine, etc. blah, blah).
However 3 in now and unbelievably the RSI/Tennis Elbow pain (which can be quite intense at times) caused by work has nearly gone. Stopped using pain killers/gels and strapping all together.
Have to admit it this stuff appears to actually work.
On top of that the company delivered extremely quickly.
Works well I use it for my dog who has Arthritis? Seems to help the inflammation!
Really fast delivery, good product, delighted !
I bought these for a friend who has very painful knees. Since starting to take them, the swollen knees have improved and movement is easier with a slight lessening of pain. Very pleased.
Would definitely recommend if you suffer from arthritis and also these tablets are much easier to swallow than the large capsules sold elsewhere.
Excellent value for money. Delivery exceedingly quick. Could not ask for more. This is where I'm getting my vitamins from now on.
I have been taking it for a few days now but I can't tell if it is working. I will need time to find out but I am happy so far. Thanks len
great value, too early to tell if it works.
Arrived promptly and really like the consistency of the tablets. They're not coated in anything, just pure and pressed , if that makes sense!
Very cheap way to get turmeric down my wife who does not like it sprinkled on food
Arrived in perfect condition.
I'm taking it for health reasons, and so far so good.
The only side effect I feel, which is good for me, is that it helps me sleep if I take it at night.
Just started these as well - I am more than happy with quality and service. Have been taking these a while now and definitely happy with them. I think a lot of people would find these useful as they are small tablets and easy to take. Will definitely be buying these again.
Competitive price, good quality, and prompt service.
Great for pain. I have M.S. and not much works for me but these and the ginger are very good. Thanks
Oxford Vitality - Turmeric 1,400mg Extra Strength 90% Curcumin Tablets for Digestive Health Well packaged Product. First time using this particular product. My understanding is it contains a 1,000mg more Turmeric than other Turmeric products of similar value.
Up to now,I have found this product to be very good.
The inflammation levels in my blood has dropped,and my blood tests are less frequent.Good news all round.
I have recommended this product to my friends.
Hopefully will help with cholestrol
Have felt no effect so far
I am using it all the time! I stopped taking Ibuprofen completely - it's only Tumeric for me now since several months!
Don't know how they work yet
Brilliant product definitely helps with my aching joints and seems to be working really well have recommended this to all my friends and it seems to work for them as well, good value for money, and fast service
Very good indeed
Both of us are trying this out and both of us are finding an improvement in our joints so we bought more. This is a result for us!!. Thanks and regards.
Arrived in good time and product as described
Been using them now for about a month can't say I notice any difference but will carry on, small amount of the tablets were crushed to powder when I received them, hence the two star
good value seems to help my joints
Very good price
Happy with this product.
Competitively priced against other suppliers:
Holland and Barrett - 100 x 400mg @ £!4
Health Span - 60 x 500mg @ £15
Well packaged and arrived quickly.
Not much else to be said about Turmeric apart from that I have just found that taking it with Black pepper increases absorption by 2000% and that it's active ingredient has very strong anti-inflammatory properties and may prevent certain types of Cancer. Although this has yet to be clinically proven, a bit like Milk Thistle.
This is the second purchase I have made from Oxford Vitality of this product and I have to say it is excellent.
Presented in small tablet form greatly facilitating administration of larger doses, which can be an issue with the powdered spice. Concentrating 1400mg into each tablet is achieved by using an extract of the turmeric spice - this is done with ethyl acetate which should selectively concentrate the curcumin in the tablets. I've been using them to relieve psoriatic arthritis - at first their action was at least equal to any of the DMARDS prescribed and probably better, but this seems to be dwindling a bit now 12 months later although the same can happen with DMARDS. I started with 1 tablet morning and night and now take 5 at each time. Certainly worth a try if you're an inflammatory arthritis sufferer, although check with your clinician before using them alongside other drugs for arthritis.
Very economical and practical way of taking this beneficial spice.
Great product, neat packaging.
well recommended after trials - I have been trying different turmeric tabs and these are the best
Easy to swallow small tablets, taking for joint pain and inflammation
Seems to be working well
Very good for the money and they have started to work on my mum and dad will defo be buying more of these
Trying this out so far so good
Spot on for muscle recovery
Good price although there are more potent products available
Good value product that is also effective at reducing aches in joints.
It was very inexpensive but seems to do the job. I would recommend this product/company to anyone.
Tiny turmeric pills which are so easy to take!! They come in a card envelope which conveniently fits easily through the letterbox and arrived in very good time.. Extremely happy to recommend this item and its seller.
Size of tablets leave me a little uneasy
Really good and so easy to take !
Product arrived promptly, neat little packets. For those who sometimes struggle with swallowing tablets, these are very small and easy to swallow. I'm taking turmeric for fibromyalgia-type pain and it seems to have reduced the amount of pain by quite a bit.
very good value
Excellent value quick delivery
Quality good but not certain if they work.
Very small tablets so easy to swallow.
Excellent value for money, better than Holland and Barretts.
Excellent value,not been taking them long enough to see how hey work long term
Really excellent all round
perfect many thanks. S,Duff.
Bought this , after recommendation, for the relief of arthrytis. Still too early to state any change in medical condition. Certainly no bad side effects.
Every thing good --packaging, delivery, price; one little quibble, the tablets of turmeric seem a bit more fragile that other tablets from the same company. This perhaps is due to the nature of the material...it just means a bit is wasted in broken and powered fragments. (It is not a lot, only about half a teaspoon in a whole bag of tablets).
Product arrived a couple of days after ordering. Very efficient. Thanks!
Good but should have black pepper added to help absorbing the curcurcium
very good price,very good delivery. have not seen better since starting CURCUMIN some time ago. thnk you
packaging awkward. best to tip the tablets into a small container.
I can't fault the product, but my research. It is easy to get the figures wrong, as most curcumin vendors have such different ways of describing their product. This is no exception. In the end in terms of value for money there are much better products out there, e.g. Double Strength Curcumin - 1000mg x 180 tablets from pureclinica.com.
arrived quickly and as described
thank you, i cannot report more as i don't know if they are going to do what i expect.
Actually removed a lump on my lip that was there for 30 years by rubbing this on it - totally recommend!!
These are high potency tablets, and are very small so aren't hard to swallow. However, they are uncoated which results in your fingers being covered in turmeric each time you reach in to get one.
So, they are a good tablet to have at home where you can wash your hands, but you may wanted a coated version if taking theme elsewhere.
I can;t say that I've noticed any particular benefits from taking turmeric, but I haven't seen any side effects either, so I'll carry on using them!
Not as good to use as my usual capsules. The tablets can be a little powdery which comes off on your fingers.
Great value buy for the strength of the turmeric though and very quick delivery.
Arrived promptly and as described supposed to be good but just started the course
good price, quality item
Very good thank you from Les
Arrived swiftly and very good value for the quantity. The concentrated pilules slip down unnoticed and obviate my having to deal with doses of loose powder in drinks. Extremely pleased.
Great service & I've noticed a difference. Will definitely be coming back!
I have started taking Turmeric quite recently to help with painful joints and blood sugar control. Seems to be working for the joints but not sure about the blood sugar yet. Good product though with high level of curcumin.
very small tablets, like other Oxford vitality products I have. Previous Turmeric tablets I ordered elsewhere were huge, these are
an extract of Turmeric, so much smaller. Tend to make your fingers yellow if you are not careful as they are uncoated.
I tipped them out into a plastic pill-pot, which seemed to get rid of the turmeric dust. Seem to work as well as the others
and the price is good, so OK for me.
