List of Ingredients
Organic Turmeric (free from chemicals).
The scientific name for turmeric is curcuma longa. Genceutic Naturals prides itself on the production of organic turmeric that is free from pesticides and chemicals. The plant is also supposed to produce a more bioavailable form of turmeric, though no proof of this claim is listed on the Genceutics website. There seems to be a bigger focus on the fact that the plant is grown non-GMO (genetically modified) and without chemicals of any kind.
We found some evidence that organic turmeric possess anti-bacterial qualities that may be useful in the treatment of wounds. In Japan, organic turmeric is used as part of a tea to calm irritable bowels and other stomach discomforts. As of February 2010, 19 total studies were on-going testing turmeric for potential health benefits. We found no proven health benefits associated with turmeric.
Genceutic Naturals Organic Turmeric sells for $17.99 per bottle. There are no weight loss benefits and turmeric will not increase fat burn. We acknowledge the fact that many studies are on-going, but none have linked turmeric to any health benefits as of late.

Supplements are a dime a dozen. Organic Turmeric may offer an organic natural solution for inflammation and other health conditions, but we have no clinical proof the spice does anything more than change the taste of food. With 19 studies on-going, we look forward to exciting new possibilities for turmeric in years to come. In terms of weight loss or fat burn, we have no reason to believe organic turmeric will ever be proven effective.
