I can not say enough good things about this turmeric. I suffer from bulging disks in my neck and lower back. I won't take any of the pain medication my doctor keeps trying to push on me so I just suffer with the pain. A friend of mine started taking turmeric for her pain and highly recommended it to me. The day I received my order I took one then again later that evening. A few short hours later my pain started to go away. This is the best I've felt in several years. I still have some minor pain but I can live with it. I am now functional again, that's the important thing. My niece also suffers from bad back pain. I will be buying her a bottle as well.
