- Turmeric Strength Line Features New FoodState® Whole Turmeric Root Powder Made with Turmeric from MegaFood Farm Fresh Partner Kauai Organic Farms
- Collection Includes Three New Formulas: Turmeric Strength for Liver, Turmeric Strength for Joint, and Turmeric Strength for Whole Body
ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 6, 2015) – Today, MegaFood is proud to announce it has teamed up with an exotic new farm fresh partner in Kauai Organic Farms, and together they are delivering a new line of dietary supplements that unleash the power of turmeric to maintain a healthy inflammation response*.
There are three different formulas in the Turmeric Strength Collection – Turmeric Strength for Liver, Turmeric Strength for Joint, and Turmeric Strength for Whole Body – all of which feature whole turmeric shipped directly from Kauai Organic Farms in Hawaii to MegaFood in New Hampshire.
MegaFood believes real food is the best way to deliver nourishment, and is committed to sourcing the farm fresh foods directly from local farmers to produce their FoodState Nutrients. So along with its strategic partner Andrew Weil, M.D., MegaFood visited Kauai Organic Farms and its owners Phil and Linda Green and saw first hand the high quality of their farming practices. It was clear that the Greens bring a lot of wisdom, passion and integrity to growing their amazing products. For the past 10 years they have specialized in growing premium and sustainable organic turmeric in the Garden Island of Kauai, which offers the rich nutrient soils, sunshine and a constant supply of rainwater that turmeric needs to flourish.
“The turmeric they are growing at Kauai Farms is beautiful and plump; much better than what I typically see in markets,” Weil said. “Turmeric is the most potent natural substance known to maintain a healthy inflammation response, and it has been shown to have some really wonderful effects on the body*.”
“Turmeric is already a fan favorite among natural food lovers, with SPINS retail data showing that it is the No. 1 selling herb in the nation,” said Stacey Gillespie, FoodState Director of New Products. “When formulating the Turmeric Strength Collection, our intention was to create not only the highest quality and science-based formulation, but to also offer an efficacious potency of curcumin, the active compound in Turmeric responsible for this food’s amazing antioxidant activity. I am very excited to partner with Phil and Linda Green of Kauai Organic. The love and attention they put into growing turmeric is reflected in the vibrant, golden orange turmeric root the farm produces.”
Each easy-to-digest tablet in the Turmeric Strength collection can be taken any time of day – even on an empty stomach – without causing upset*. Each serving delivers more curcumin per serving than the leading turmeric herbal combination brand, as well as a full spectrum of body-protective curcuminoid and polyphenol constituents not found in standardized extracts*.
MegaFood® Turmeric Strength collection is available at Natural Products Retailers starting on March 6, 2015.
