The BCM-95 that life extension uses is pretty well studied and shows blood levels 7 X than without. There's 2 other additives for absorption that work even better but they just lower the amount of curcumin per capsule so that it equals out in blood levels. I use the life extension brand.
No that will be enough. What you are taking is 600 mg of the spice. What everyone else is talking about its taking the curcuminoids(what's good I turmeric). These company's will extract the curcuminoids, bind them to phospholips/essential oils/encase them in fats/black pepper ect. Which will enhancethe bioavailability. Think about krill, kill is superior because the omegas are bound to phospholips. This same basic principle is being applied to curcumin.
I also went back and Re read the article; she was taking 8 grams of actual pill extracts, not the spice.
Great to see this thread, turmeric has so many health benefits. I use actual root in my shakes, can use a microplane or zester. If im out, I'll use straight powder. Heres a great link discussing benefits and researched brands
Turmeric is absolutely fantastic - i can tell you that it was hurting to walk down our steps upon waking in the morning and I know that just a short amount of time (much less than the first bottle ) the inflamation is essentially gone, the joint tenderness and all the effects of years from the gym are definitely mitigated from taking this stuff religiously!
hi, im a renal failure survivor who has been using anabolics for many yrs and its been about 5yrs since the hospital and i still use anabolics. whith no problems, mine was due to abuse, but im just wondering, i live with serious joint and serious hand pain and i wanna run this product, i would like to know if at these doses your speaking of, is there any danger to my liver ???
thank you for your time and most educated response, i see the intricate detail you all have on this topic. i was impressed.
This is what made me switch brands. Is ti becuase of the other things added that each pill is only 30 mg compared to the 750 mg or the dr thobias turmeric 15x? That is a huge difference and I have been taking 3 of Thobias's tumeric a day.
