I have been using turmeric now about 2 months for arthritis in my feet. I also take ACVH. What a difference...
What is the proper daily dosage? I usually take about 1/2 teaspoon a day.edit on 9-3-2014 by olaru12 because: (no reason given)
Dietary sources of Turmeric / Curcumin:
Turmeric root, Turmeric spice powder, yellow curry powders / pastes, yellow mustard condiment and “indian saffron” spice.
Notes on Curcuminoid bioavailability (absorb-ability) in the human body:
While curcuminoids are very effective against many types of cancer and many other ailments, but they are hydrophobic (repels from water) and the the body doesn’t absorb them internally so well. Supplementing with black pepper along side the curcumin helps with this. Some recent research suggests that the use of fresh plant material containing the raw essential oils is more effective in the human body than high purity dry curcumin products alone.
Dietary strategies, including the use of black pepper (piperine), can boost blood levels of curcumin from the spice turmeric by up to 2,000%.
Whether those studies are all positive in regard to the trials in which they were used, is hard to say from a layman's perspective. The trials listed for lymphoma, (my disease) for example, are too far out of my comprehension to know what I'm reading in even the titles.
Can it be as simple as this: If compiled, openly shared and put into a more readable form, can lists such as the site point the way for average folks to uncover available data for multitudes of simple preparations from natural plants? Can such lists be the "smoking gun" that gives us insight into how the big pharms ignore, hide and suppress simple cures so they can continue their hold on the entire field of medicine?
