Safety Concerns

Unfortunately, there are certain curcumin formulations being sold that have safety issues regarding the selection of raw materials and efficacy of study design.

One capsule of NovaSOL® contains over six times the amount of Tween-80 normally found in our diet. Again, Tween-80 is known to be well-tolerated up to 100 mg per day, but the health issues with consumption of larger quantities on a regular basis are unknown.

Side Effects

Most curcumin products have excellent safety profiles, however, Schiborr (2014) reported side-effects from the use of NovaSOL® within a group of 23 human participants including:

  1. Mild nausea (seven females, three males)
  2. Vomiting (one female)
  3. Mild fatigue (one female)
  4. Mild headache (one female)
  5. Mild stomach ache (one female)
  6. Incidental regurgitation (one female)

Unfortunately, NovaSOL’s® use of Tween-80 may be the cause of these side effects, since there is no human biosafety data with NovaSOL’s® serving size of Tween-80. Furthermore, studies using BCM-95® have also reported a higher incidence of side effects including raised liver enzymes, blood thinning effects and worsening of GI symptoms in one study (Chandran and Goel, 2012).


STUDIES HAVE DEMONSTRATED POSITIVE EFFECTS WITH ANXIETY, ENERGY LEVELS AND DEPRESSION DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF FENUGREEK (Kumar et al., 2016; Sudheeran et al., 2016)
