Curcumin Supplements

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

My favorite curcumin supplement is

The Jarrow Curcumin 95% “Cucrcumine 95 250mg”

Description

* Turmeric 18:1 Concentrate
* Antioxidant Protection
* Dietary Supplement

Curcumin 95 is an 18:1 concentrate of the antioxidants found in the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95% curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are antioxidants. Specifically, curcumin and it derivatives protect DNA against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.

Please note, some people who took the curcumin/bioperine combination reported an increased inflammation in the scalp.  Every time you take a new supplement listen to your body, sense the scalp and how your body feels that day.

curcumin has anti cancer properties. I have been taking 2 gms (4 capsules) per day since shortly after diagnosis with stage 4 breast cancer a year ago. Went into remission within 3 months, all tumors have disappeared, am now in remission with no evidence of disease for 8 months.

No more sweat smell! November 07, 2008
From Tennessee
In addition to being a wonderful anti-oxidant, after using this for a couple of weeks in the summer, I found that my sweat did not smell. One thing though, if your blood sugar tends to run low, it takes about a month for your body to get used to it. Keep honey around, because your blood sugar can drop very quickly.

Curcumin is recommended for several conditions. I use because I read it helps prevent Alzheimer’s.

Great for bone spurs February 02, 2009
From North Carolina
Discovered online that curcumin is a great anti-inflammatory. Occasionally I have sharp pain in my back that is caused by bone spurs. I’ll take a capsule every few hours and by the next day the pain is almost all gone. once the pain is gone I only take 1 a day. To me this is incredible because I could have pain that lasted for 2 weeks. Love curcumin.
