Frequently Asked Questions


Natruflex is our high potency turmeric and black pepper supplement that contains marine magnesium for additional nerve and muscle support. Each capsule contains 90mg of magnesium; this equates to just under 25% of the daily recommended amount of this essential mineral. Our pure Marine Magnesium supplement contains 100% of the daily recommended amount of magnesium. For this reason there should be no need to have both supplements together unless you know you are low in magnesium or are someone highly sporty who may lose essential minerals through heavy perspiration.


The ultra high potency turmeric found in Natruflex is fat soluble - this means it's absorption across the gut wall is increased in the presence of a little fat or oil. Having it after a meal will increase the absorption quite significantly which can therefore increase its potential benefits.


Antiplatelet and anticoagulant medicines work to prevent the blood clotting. In theory, high potency turmeric and black garlic may enhance the effect of these medicines and therefore increase the risk of an unintentional bleed. This is a theoretical risk only, however, we prefer to be cautious and so advise that the combination of these prescribed medications are avoided with these two supplements.

If you are concerned and would like to speak to the pharmacists about this further please call or email.


Approximately 10% of all asthmatics should avoid anti-inflammatories due a change in breathing caused by inhibition of COX-1, an enzyme involved in the anti-inflammatory pathway. Turmeric works on a completely different inflammatory pathway, called the PPAR pathway and so does not need to be avoided by asthmatics.
