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.

I read an interesting study from a mainstream medical source showing it help slow oral cancer, was being tested on patients leading up to surgery for that.

Curcumin had zero therapeutic (antidepressant) effect on me even when taken with Bioperine for good absorption. Certainly notable for other benefits, however.
