Just wondering how much Turmeric or curcumin everyone is taking, as well as how often, and if you should or shouldn't take it with other supplements or vitamins?
I just got some curcumin 500mg capsules that are standardized to 95% curcuminoids. I think the bottle said to take 2 a day. Anything else I should know? how long before you noticed a difference?
Thanks in advance

I am not sure everybody's using it, and I am not sure if curcumin is working for everybody. I am taking it in a mix with boswellia serrata. It's in a combo capsule, ordered at www.iherb, and boswellia serrata is also reducing inflammation as curcumin. I do feel a difference, and I take 1 capsule 4 times a day, each capsule is 250 mg curcumin and I think 250 mg of boswellia. Don't hesitate to try it, curcumin is a just a spice, used all over the world making food tasty and yellowish./Bee

I don't remember--I bought a bottle and followed its directions. I took the whole bottle and I didn't notice any improvement. I do think it stung a bit coming out though.

Hey Skofbengsk,

I would recommend in the future that you only get one bottle. What works for one, does not always work for all, and if you order multiple bottles they just end up going to waste. Thats what I do when I want to try something new. I would rather throw away only a few dollars instead of more.

Thanks nanners, they were buy one get one free, and I just figured out why I started feeling bad, it wasn't the tumeric, I started my period this morning, it makes me sick every time, my GI won't listen to me though he says "hormones don't cause this" he is an idiot because sure enough I start having pain and D and 3-5 days later guess what happens!!! He is an idiot

BeeSting: sorry somehow I missed your post before, I put up a post about Boswellia in December and almost noone had heard of it, and it sounded like noone was really taking it for crohns I also started that a few weeks ago and have also noticed a big difference, I could not tell so much if it actually got rid of my inflammation but I had no pain at all until this stupid episode. I went nuts over Christmas visiting my sister inlaw for an entire week. Every time I put something in my mouth(pie, cookies, candy, nuts, salad etc. you name it I ate it) I new it was going to hurt but it never did, I also ate fast food the whole trip there and back "no Problems" it was amazing. I gained 6 lbs in my 9 days of travel, I have been trying to put on weight since July and had only managed to put on about 10lbs in 4 months.

tez25: It is supposed to be very anti inflammatory, I myself have only been dealing with this for about 3 1/2 years and am just now really trying to get serious about diet and natural remedies, there is lots of info out there it is just hard to know what is proven and what will work for you, obviously there is no cure but a lot of people have found long term releif with diet.
