This is exciting. Here is some evidence based research you can follow up and read.
You can take 'tumeric' as a powder or buy fresh - it looks like fresh ginger. Supplements as always -tablets, capsules, powder . You can have tumeric tea,facemasks ..... list is endless.
We automatically do think of food when we say turmeric so here are some recipes a Sjorgens member kindly gave me:
This link offers great site for research, tips etc.. if you wish to become more informed:
To summarise everything so you can get started lol!
-Turmeric - we mean 'curcumin' ,tumeric , per se, is not pure 'curcumin'
- Dosage needed - they suggest around or exceeding 1 gram per day. Pretty difficult to reach such levels just using the turmeric in your food as thats equivalent roughly to 1600mg twice a day with meals .
-Take an extract that contains significant amounts of 'curcumin' Most spices only contain 2%.
-Curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream, so consume black pepper with it, which contains 'piperine'… a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2000% .I am now swallowing a few small whole peppercorns along with my curcumin supplement, in order to enhance absorption ;).
- Curcumin is also fat soluble, so good idea to take it with a fatty meal. You all have excuses to go fry those chips and make yummy burgers ;). In the UK just hit the 'fish, chips and mushy peas ' !
Anyone interested can trial tumeric. Lets all see how we are in one month. Every little 'tool' helps!. Ill make a note to revisit post.
PS: dont forget tumeric stains hands, clothes yellow - so be warned ;)
