Curcumin and Turmeric

Curcumin is one of several curcuminoids present in turmeric. The curcuminoids in turmeric can be taken orally to help treat arthritis, both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, prevent colon cancer, protect against Alzheimer’s disease, and prevent heart disease. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, anti diabetes, and anti-cancer as well so we recommend getting a lot of it.

Turmeric contains approximately 2% curcumin by weight, so a tablespoon of turmeric, which weighs 6.8 grams, contains about 0.136 grams of curcumin, or 136 milligrams. If you want to add the recommended 400-600mg of curcumin three times a day that has been shown to have the best health benefits, you would have to take 4.5 TBSP of turmeric spice three times a day. This is another reason why we recommend high quality physician grade supplements. Do yourself a favor, and get more curcumin in your diet and vitamin regimen.

Curcumin IV therapies are also available at Human Reconstruction, and can benefit everything from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and autoimmunity, to cancer to dementia.
