“Not all curcumin products are the same or have gone through the most rigorous safety reviews. The additional level of review that led to the FDA’s recent response reflects our commitment to ensuring the safety of our products go above and beyond what is commonplace in the industry,” said Dr. Shavon Jackson Michel, ND, Medical & Scientific Affairs Advisor.
“The FDA’s response adds further credence to our expert panel’s confirmation of GRAS status. This is a rare accomplishment and distinguishes BCM-95 as a product our customers can trust.”
