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..
I''m a caregiver that has been advised by my health professional to take both Curcumin and Resveratrol.
As I have read that both can be of benefit for someone with colon cancer (see Ref examples below),
I tried, as soon as DH got the diagnose, to motivate him to also take it. So far he has not been interested
It is of course(!) his decision but I think I will try one more time to present research info to him again later.
This is what I was advised to take:
Apex Energetics products - Turmero™ Active and Resvero™ Active
" concentrated source .. in an emulsified, micronized structure.* "https://www.apexenergetics.com/turmero-activehttps://www.apexenergetics.com/resvero-active
I buy the products through a company in UK (I live in Europe), but I believe they order direct from the links/company above. Note: They only sell (most of?) Apex Energetics products to you if you have a health professional you 'go to'.
On my bottle of Turmero it says:
" Amounts per serving (5ml)
Proprietary Blend 420mg
Turmeric Extract (root) (standardized to 95% curcuminoids)
Black Peppar Extract (fruit)"
I take 5ml of the Turmero (+5ml of the Resvero) in a glass of water, before breakfast.
With breakfast I take a few other supplements - a probiotic, some B-vitamins and a joint health product.Examples of what I have read regarding taking both Curcumin & Resveratrol
