Excellent. Believe me, curcumin is good for a million other things too. Everyone should cook with turmeric, and supplementing with capsules would not hurt.
The word on the street is that Curcumin is going to double in price.
Yeah, sure. Some hippie organic food magazine makes another claim. Remember St. John’s Wort? People who don’t know what real depression is should keep their traps shut.
It’s an interesting medical condition.
The doctors don’t completely know what causes it — and aren’t quite sure how the medications work.
An unknown cause being treated with guesswork medications.
TAKE TURMERIC CAPSULES!!
you will know you are taking enough when you start to have a craving for ordinary table pepper (instead of salt)
It makes you feel great, and I stopped needing reading glasses
There appears to be a peculiar connection somehow, between liver function, mood disorders and cancer. Curcuminoids aid liver function, are beneficial with certain forms of cancer, and are helpful with depression. It’s a powerful natural anti-inflammatory. It also benefits individuals with Alzheimers. Very high dosages have to be administered for therapeutic effect however, and bioavailability is not good at all via the digestive tract.
SAM-e also is helpful with liver function and mood disorders. Bioavailability is not such an issue. It’s even prescribed for liver support over the course of treatments that can pose difficulties with liver function, such as chemotherapy.
What does this mean? No idea. Could be sheer coincidence. Interesting possibilities spring to mind though.
Great excuse to make curry a part of my regular diet.
Whole Foods Magazine? Give me The Journal of the American Medical Association or The New England Journal of Medicine for medical advice any day.
I take Organic India turmeric, about half the “recommended” dose. It has a very noticeable positive effect on my mental processes. Don’t have depression, so cannot comment on that.
Historically, extremely low doses of meds work for me. Higher doses are dangerous.
Heal the sick. Raise the dead. Make little girls talk out of their head....I guess there is no depression in India.
This requires some pause for reflection.
The problem is that curcumin is not well absorbed.The only way I know of to enhance this is piperine, which is why I eat pepper before taking it.
