According to the Toxic Substances and Disease Registry of the Department of Health and Human Services, the potential health effects of exposure to the Class-1 solvent at levels above 5 ppm (parts-per-million) are: SHORT-TERM EFFECTS OF EDC: central nervous system disorders; adverse liver, kidney, and lung effects; and heart failure. (Gas Chromotography-Mass Spectrometry): an unreliable, outdated and un-approved testing method for curcumin.
Current USP/FDA standards no longer permit use of GC-MS to determine solvent residue in curcumin.

A specific ratio of curcuminoids together with certain essential oil components of turmeric proves the most bioavailable and produces the best clinical results.
This curcumin formula, together with a patented manufacturing, technology Scientists have long sought a more bioavailable form of curcumin to maximize curcumin's efficacy.
Curcumin should be stopped prior to scheduled surgery.
Reported adverse reactions have been limited to mild gastrointestinal distress, which may be minimized by consuming curcumin with food.
This new, patented manufacturing technology increases of curcumin products with a Class-1 residual solvent known as EDC (1,2-dichloroethane).
Researchers continue to discover new curcuminoids and major differences are identified.
It now appears turmeric may contain well over a hundred chemical species--many of which are expected to be discovered in the essential oil complexes of this medicinal herb.
Stearates (including magnesium stearate) are hydrogenated oils added at production as a flowing agent, to save manufacturing costs.
These fatty substances coat every particle of curcumin, so the particles flow rapidly through machinery.
