If you choose to use curcumin, I would like to know what brand you use and where do you purchase it? Do you use the type that includes bioperine? Bioperine is derived from black pepper, correct? And what amount of curcumin do you take on a daily basis? Do you just take it with your other vitamins and supplements? Thank you..

Turmeric: The active constituents are turmerone oil and water-soluble curcuminoids, mainly curcumin which is the focus of most research. In vitro studies suggest that curcumin, the principal bioactive ingredient of turmeric, acts as a weak phytoestrogen (1), and exhibits neuroprotective (2), choleretic (3), anti-inflammatory (4), immunomodulatory (5), anti-proliferative (3), and chemopreventive effects (6) (7) (8). Curcumin, its analogs, and liposomal formulations have also produced chemosensitizing (9) (10) (11) and radiosensitizing effects (12) (13).
