Tried other brands, with marginal success; including a brand from Sri Lanka, the home of Turmeric. This brand, with its two additional ingredients; Ginger & Black Pepper; still continues to free up my two osteoarthritic hips while keeping the pain at bay & giving me free & full movement in going about my daily life. The trick is to shop around until you come across one which is above the rest. This brand for me is just that. A cut above the rest.
