Turmeric LiquidGold Tincture
Our potent, concentrated, certified organic turmeric tincture, providing a powerful anti-inflammatory effect via maximum absorption by the body
Curcumin is the key active ingredient in turmeric and is what gives turmeric its distinct colour. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, is a powerful antioxidant, and is the focus of many scientific studies for its beneficial health effects.
The challenge with any curcumin supplement is absorption, as turmeric is poorly soluble in its natural state and not well absorbed into the body.
The curcumin content of turmeric also isn't very high – most turmeric's curcumin content makes up only 3% by weight. To put that into perspective, approximately 30kg of turmeric root is needed to produce 1kg of curcumin.
Yes this acts as a catalyst to get things in motion, but turmeric is actually fat-soluble so needs fat in the diet to get it absorbed into the bloodstream via the fatty-acid receptors in the GI tract.
Solution? Our LiquidGold does all the hard work for you, giving you a ready-to-absorb, potent source of organic curcumin, at the highest-strength maceration, for immediate absorption straight into the bloodstream and to the body’s cells.

Curcumin, a term commonly used to refer to the three main curcuminoids found in turmeric - curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin - are polyphenolic pigments and active compounds found within the turmeric rhizome.
First identified by Harvard scientists in 1815, curcumin is now known to be responsible for the many therapeutic benefits of turmeric. Curcumin inhibits inflammatory responses in various signaling pathways, which means that it helps to suppress the body’s tendency to cause inflammation. It’s also believed that curcumin acts as a powerful antioxidant, counteracting damaging particles that can be produced by the body as a byproduct of toxic or inflammatory stressors.
