Turmeric 3D vs. Joint & Muscle Care: Which one should I take?
Today, I want to talk to you about two fantastic products that we have in our line, that are focused on anti-inflammatory effects within your body, that can help reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and ultimately resolve a lot of the deep-seated systemic angst within your body that might be creating assorted symptoms, like joint pain, swelling, headaches, imbalances in hormones, and even gut imbalances.
What’s in Turmeric 3D?
So, let’s talk about Turmeric 3D. This is one of our bestsellers here at Organixx.
Vitamin D3: Supports Every Cell, Immunity, Liver Synthesis
It has vitamin D3, a very key bioavailable steroid, it’s not a vitamin, it’s a steroid. And we deliver 5,000 IUs of vitamin D, which is awesome for your immune health, and ultimately it’s a precursory building block, a nutrient needed for your body to balance and build hormones, and it nourishes your liver and supports liver synthesis, as well as every cell in your body needs D3. That D3 is very, very substantial in that quantity. That’s a normal daily dose that I recommend for individuals that are at optimal levels of D3, meaning you’re testing at between 84 and a hundred IUs of D3 within your body.
Now, we also have four very powerful supplements, ancient herbals, in the Turmeric 3D. And I really love these synergistically, because they collectively support hormone balance, they address overall systemic inflammation, they support our gut health, they also enhance our immune response, and can help address the effects of stress on the body.
Fermented Turmeric: Highly Bioavailable
So, let’s start with our signature forward ingredient, which is turmeric in Turmeric 3D. We offer a fermented turmeric, which delivers a max bioavailability. So what you’re consuming, the core ingredient, or core compound in turmeric is curcumin. You’re going to be absorbing the greatest quantity of curcumin. So the bioavailability of our triple fermentation process makes this so spectacular. What I find with individuals who take turmeric, they can help reduce the excess of fluid that their body is holding. So, if you’re noticing you’re holding a little bit more fluid in your body, that can help flush that out through the natural method, via the lymphatic system.
And also, studies show turmeric, when taken in this type of form, helps to balance our thyroid levels – T3 and T4 – that are being produced by the liver. And ultimately that detoxification, the lowering of inflammation, helps support a healthier liver function.
Ashwagandha: A Powerful Adaptogenic
We also have a triple-fermented ashwagandha. Ashwagandha hands down is one of our best and most powerful adaptogenic herbs, this is an Ayurvedic herb, that helps the body adapt to everyday stressors – environmental stressors, biochemical, physiological stressors, assorted stressors – that cause imbalance, and raise cortisol, and ultimately causes inflammation.
Ginger: More than Digestive Support
Then we also have a triple-fermented ginger, which is so fantastic for supporting digestion. Ginger also lowers inflammation, and can ease assorted immune imbalances, in that it helps to promote lymphatic flow, which helps to enhance our blood circulation, and ultimately enhances our heart and lung function.
Recommended for Autoimmune Dysfunction, Joint Pain, Excessive Stress
So, T3D is very much anti-inflammatory, it supports your liver, and the function of your thyroid gland, and also helps to enhance your immune responsiveness, and eases stress. That is a powerful resource for anybody who might be dealing with autoimmunity, joint pain, might be dealing with excessive stress in their lives. Maybe you have a stressful job, or stressful home environment, maybe your work is physiologically stressful, maybe your work or home environment is chemically stressful, maybe you are being bombarded by mold or biotoxins that you aren’t always tuned into, or maybe have had tested, maybe you’re dealing with Lyme or some sort of bacterial, or even parasitic invasion, that can be quite helpful in overall supporting your immune system, and the stress of that state.
The vitamin D3, overall, is going to help support all of the cells in your body, because every cell requires D3, it is going to be utilized by every cell in your body. It energizes your cells, and also protects your cells from oxidation and free radical stress, ultimately reducing your cells’ weakness to inflammation, to illness, and to overall the effects of inflammation within the body.
Where I would use T3D would be individuals that fall into any of the autoimmune categories, digestive grief, elevations in cholesterol levels, or individuals that have those exposures to assorted stressors.
The only caveat I have with T3D is any individual that might be dealing with a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s, that is a particular dysfunction of the thyroid gland, where it’s an autoimmunity of the thyroid gland, it’s attacking itself, ashwagandha is the only ingredient that we recommend staying away from because ashwagandha can actually exacerbate that immune response. Everybody else can benefit from T3D, especially for folks that are dealing with kind of global, more specific autoimmune dysfunction, or disorders of inflammation, stress, or immune weakness.
Joint & Muscle Care: Powerhouse Trio of Ingredients to Address Systemic Inflammation
Now, on the flip side, our new Joint & Muscle Care, I really love this. It’s a three-in-one, a super powerhouse that addresses overall systemic inflammation.
So, individuals that really benefit from the Joint & Muscle Care are going to be individuals that have joint pain, that might be recovering from surgery or an extended illness. I see a lot of patients in the post-COVID category that greatly benefit from that enhancement of the white blood cells that we see, by one of the ingredients called myrrh.
What’s in Joint & Muscle Care?
So, the Joint & Muscle Care, there’s three ingredients altogether, it’s a three-in-one powerhouse of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial benefits. The frankincense, the myrrh, and the turmeric collectively can help enhance circulation, they can enhance the function of our joints, and it can also ease achiness of muscles. What we see collectively, these three together, there are magical ancient medicinal properties in the balancing of inflammation in the body.
So often, individuals that have arthritis, osteoarthritis, they have joint pain, maybe injuries to ligaments and soft tissue, and just overall muscle tension. Maybe the tightness in the shoulders, or individuals that have had any type of mobility decrease because of the functionality or dysfunction of those joints or muscles can greatly benefit from the Joint & Muscle Care.
What’s the Difference Between Turmeric 3D and Joint & Muscle Care?
So, where I’d kind of position the two differently, T3D is just an overall powerhouse for assorted deep immune imbalances, autoimmunity, as well as stress. And Joint & Muscle Care is going to be specific to pain and inflammation in the body, particularly pain in your joints, pain in the muscles, and systemic inflammation that might present as elevations in cholesterol levels, or an elevation in C-reactive protein, a biomarker of inflammation. That then can cause, or be a biomarker, indicating the likelihood of a potential risk for heart attack or even stroke.
When to Take Turmeric 3D
So these two can be taken independently, T3D is one of those supplements that I recommend twice a day just as a baseline level, take in the morning, take in the evening. Kind of spreads out that immune enhancement, it spreads out the lowering of the inflammation, and addresses the stress, because we will have stress during the day within the body, and stress in the evening, so it balances that out.
When to Take Joint & Muscle Care
Now, as far as the Joint & Muscle Care, if you’re dealing with a lot of joint pain, maybe you’re dealing with gout, or joints that are literally immobilized and hard to move, or even neuropathy, painful skin, maybe there’s some eczema or psoriasis that’s causing you pain and discomfort. And even individuals that have extensive UV damage on their skin, the Joint & Muscle Care can greatly enhance that balance. So, I love to recommend the Joint & Muscle Care throughout the day, It’s almost like a replacement to some of the over-the-counter pain relievers, but in a more natural form that has the capacity to actually lower the inflammation, which is what causes pain.
Inflammation, basically friends, is going to be an accumulation of fluid, a buildup of excess fluid, that then presses on nerve centers, or presses on joints, immobilizing the joints, and causing pain. We register pain in one center of the brain, and these three supplements, these three powerhouse herbals – frankincense, myrrh, and turmeric – can actually address that pain reduction.
So I love these individually, I love them together, and I hope this was helpful in identifying which, if one, or both might be a resource for you in your healing journey.

Dear Dr Gallagher - this is such helpful advice. I have had both and did find my walking etc much improved. Just recently unfortunately had a bad fall in street and fractured my wrist so bad setback.
I have been on prescription with Levothyroxine 1 tab per day for a few years. Have hypothyroidism. Does this mean I should avoid the Tumeric 3D?
Be grateful for response.

Hello Rosemary Prentice,
We are sorry to hear about the health challenges you have been facing. Sending a healing prayer your way. :) The doctor did mention that if you are dealing with Hashimoto (which can cause hypothyroidism) it is best to stay away from Turmeric 3D. This is due to Turmeric 3D containing ashwagandha. We recommend speaking with your doctor to find out if supplementation is right for your specific health concerns. Have a happy and healthy day! :)

So, regarding people with Hashimoto's, are you saying not to take Ashwaganda? in any form?? That for a person with Hashimoto's it will be okay to take both T3D and Joint & Muscle Care daily?

What about the need for vitamin K to keep the D from hardening the arteries? The Tumeric 3D doesn't have K and I've heard it is very important to include K2 with D.
Customer Service says
I appreciate your question regarding the relationship between Vitamin D and K2 and I'll do my best to provide you with an answer.
While there is a relationship between Vitamin D and K2, it has to do with calcium metabolism and not necessarily needing each other for absorption.
For instance, vitamin D3 is essential for efficient absorption of calcium and phosphate, both of which are needed for bone growth and maintaining bone strength.
Similarly, vitamin K2 allows calcium to enter into the bone where it is needed, instead of remaining in the blood where it can cause problems - for example, arterial calcification.
In other words, vitamins D3 and K2 work together to enable calcium to function efficiently in our body. So, it is a good idea to have Vitamin K2 in your diet as well. Remember, both D3 and K2 are fat-soluble vitamins, meaning that they do not dissolve in water and are absorbed best into your body when consumed with high-fat foods. For this reason, it's recommended to take vitamin D3 and K2 supplements with a meal containing healthy fats to enhance their absorption.
I hope you find this information helpful. Have a happy and healthy day! :)
