Curcumax is a weight loss supplement that claims the power of turmeric is enough to spark your metabolism and get that scale moving.

The two Curcumax supplements are relatively the same, though you can see some significant differences between the two. Integrative Therapeutics makes the same claims for both products – relief from exercise-induced pain. Every dieter needs a little pain relief, especially when adding exercise to a new diet program. Those first few days of exercise can be extremely painful as the muscles get used to extra movement. The main cause of pain is lactic acid build-up, which can be averted with proper warm-up and cool-down. It is also helpful to stretch every evening before bed and in the morning upon waking to increase blood circulation to muscles to speed the recovery process.
Curcumax contains turmeric – a new and exciting addition to the supplement market. Turmeric, a spice commonly used in food preparation, has been proven to reduce pain and inflammation. Though clinical studies are impressive, it was one account from a doctor who recognized the benefits in one of his patients that truly struck a chord with us. Turmeric, in this case, was responsible for a 70-something man recovering from hip replacement surgery in record time. The doctor went on to start taking turmeric for every day aches and pains with great success. We also found mention of turmeric on the website for the American Cancer Society as a possible natural treatment for pain and inflammation. As for weight loss, turmeric is in the beginning stages of clinical study with some pretty impressive results, but the jury is still out.
- Turmeric may reduce pain and inflammation.
- Curcumax and Curcumax Pro contains turmeric.
- Curcumax is relatively inexpensive.
- Weight loss studies are still being completed.
Curcumax claims to reduce pain associated with exercise and overuse. We found clinical studies and personal accounts of pain reduction with regular turmeric use. While weight loss studies are not yet conclusive, we believe there could be some positive results with regular use of turmeric or turmeric-containing supplements like Curcumax.
