    There are so many choices. Is it better to get Curcumin or Tumeric? Which brands have helped with inflammation?


    I believe Tumeric is supposed to help more than Curcumin.

    See the following:

    Personally, I took Tumeric for awhile, and found no benefit from it, so I stopped when I ran out of my second or third bottle of it.

    Hi Ella;
    Turmeric is a spice and curcumin is the active ingredient in it.I use Theracumin as it is much more bioavalable to the body.Taking curcumin is not as good but if you add pepper it will be more effective.Since I am not keen to have 1/2 a teaspoon of black pepper in my mout I use theracumin.Either one should be taken with some sort of oil.I use coconut or borage oil


    Hi Ella. I use Mercola’s brand Curcumin Advanced. I think he has high quality supplements and I have found this one helpful.

    Thank you all for your tips.

    Lynn, do you take coconut oil in a capsule?



    I get Enhansa prescribed by my LLMD and its shipped to me. Some insurances will cover it with just a co pay, but need to check ahead. I have not experienced much anti inflammatory effect and herxed initially so needed to increase dose slowly, but I take it for its multitude of health effects.
