Depending on the brand (I buy mine from my naturopath - it doesn’t smell or taste like coconut), I can either drink it straight or I put it in my coffee.
I just wanted to throw out some other supplements that have anti-cancer properties to them: Vitamin D, Selenium, ALA, Iodine & Magnesium. In addition to these, Green Tea Extract and Resveratrol Grape Seed & Red Wine Extracts.
Driving now but at noon PST I will b behind a computer and will give thoroughanswer and more, no prob.
I do take it by the spoonful, sometimes I mix it with scrambled eggs.
Thank you for this information! I too take cayenne pepper [extract], but since I battle Graves Disease (hyperthyroid), I avoid coconut oil, but I’m going to find out if I need to avoid it completely.
OK the short answer is that I think u should take TWO, not one, and here is the more important thing:
Take those along with your fattiest meal of the day --for most folks that's dinner. Lessay you eat a bunch of lasagna? Yeah, take it with that.
Or lessay you eat a huge omlette with plenty of butter --take it then.
Whatever you eat that is super fatty --and I know you eat fats-- you take your curcumin (tumeric, but the active component) THEN.
While it's super cheap and super therapeutic it's bioavailability is pretty low --just cuz it gets past your lips does not at all mean that it is getting uptaken.
Also it does not circulate for a long time --all the expensive efforts to ligate curcumin to other bigger things have the objective of making it patentable ($$$) and maybe also get it to circulate for a longer time b4 being eliminated.
I really think the best --for years-- will be to consistently take pure curcumin with something fatty and peppery.
And you should try the frankensense/gum thing I described --it's cheap, simple, reliable, and highly thereapeutic.
I'm not super Biblical, but here is a quick aside;
1. gold - resists inflation
2. Myrrh - anti parasitic, anti-helmenthic
3. Frankensence - powerful anti-inflammatory (and many others)
can you cook with it?
I have a jar, I haven’t used it for anything yet
I cannot imagine trying to swallow a spoonful of it- it looks like hardened lard - do you use something different?
Coconut oil is incredible for cooking. It would be lousy for high-temp frying, but that is usually not a problem, as people who gravitate toward it tend to not desire deep fried solutions. It is incredible for anything where you would typically use butter or another oil. Coconut oil is what they used to pop popcorn with at the theaters - back when it tasted reaalllllly good. I scramble eggs with it, use it to saute veg, the uses are endless. The medium chain triglycerides are incredibly under-rated and critical. One note, though, it is a peculiar oil in that it solidifies below 76 degrees, so it can be liquid during one use and solid the next time you grab it.
Yep, and so few people knew/know that. The trouble is news reporters cannot be bothered and bureaucrats are fearful and slothful. They’re the anti-entrepreneurs.
Curcumin, possibly the most powerful antioxidant known from the popular Indian spice Turmeric, has countless health benefits. A recent study led by a research team in Munich showed that it can also inhibit formation of metastases.
Curcumin exerts anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects by inhibiting tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), suggesting that its effect on endothelial function may be mediated by the suppression of inflammation and/or oxidative stress via down-regulation of TNF-alpha.
One of the most comprehensive summaries of a review of 700 turmeric studies to date was published by the respected ethnobotanist James A. Duke, Phd. He showed that turmeric appears to outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effects.
