SEBASTOPOL, Calif., Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The top international nutritional forum – Informa Exhibition's SupplySide -- has named Golden Goddess® Turmeric Matrix Instant Tea by Spice Pharm as one of its five finalists for the 2016 SupplySide Editor's Choice Awards.
The SupplySide editorial team selects consumer products for achievements in innovation and market impact.
"We are thrilled that our cutting-edge turmeric tea formula has been recognized with this honor," said Kitty Wells, CEO of Spice Pharm. "Unlike anything on the market, Golden Goddess Turmeric Matrix delivers the health benefits of turmeric and curcumin in an inviting cup of tea. Who needs another pill to swallow?"
Turmeric root is a complex botanical containing over 350 beneficial compounds. Curcumin – an extract of turmeric -- shows a wide range of health benefits in over 6,000 scientific studies.
Golden Goddess Matrix uses an innovative extract of turmeric that preserves the complete natural matrix of turmeric and delivers a high 50% curcumin content, while mellowing the bitterness of raw turmeric into a pleasant herbal flavor.
"We scrutinize every ingredient for effectiveness, safety and taste," said Wells. "We didn't settle for isolated curcumin, which demonstrates problems with low bioavailability."
Studies on the extract in Golden Goddess Turmeric Tea show benefits for joint, skin and immune health, plus:
- 10x greater bioavailability than standard curcumin
- 6x greater bioavailability and 3x faster absorption than curcumin with turmeric oil
- 5x greater bioavailability and 2.5x faster absorption than curcumin with phospholipids
While curcumin is notoriously non-soluble, Spice Pharm's revolutionary pure-plant blend mixes easily with hot or cold water. This ultra-clean formula is 100% solvent-free and contains NO black pepper extract, which inhibits key detoxifying liver enzymes that affect the metabolism of a wide range of pharmaceuticals and toxins.
"In the past few years we've had tremendous success highlighting the products that are coming to market, driven by the innovative ingredients highlighted at SupplySide," said Heather Granato, vice president, content, in Informa's Health & Nutrition Network. "In considering hundreds of products, our team narrowed the field based on the unique positioning and ability to serve consumers with truly cutting-edge products."
