My rheumatologist recommended I try tumeric for pain and inflammation. I've been doing a little reading and the recommended dosage is abut 1000 mg of 95% curcumin, which is the ingredient in the tumeric that combats inflammation. It is also recommended that black pepper be included because it helps with absorption. I bought some on Amazon, but they only contain about
150 mg of the 95% curcumin. By this standard, I should be taking about
6 capsules a day, to get a dose that is beneficial.
I was wondering if anyone is taking tumeric, and if so, what brand and dosage. Its very hard to know what to buy, as I guess some of them are total rip-offs.
