There's two sides to the curcumin verses turmeric debate, so be sure to read up on both sides. I prefer to use turmeric as it's the whole herb and I have the best results from the whole herbs. I believe it's due to the whole herbs other constituents that provide "extras" that curcumin has been stripped of. www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400915/Curcumin-or-Turmeric.html
Just something to keep in mind.
And I agree with Girlie, don't do the pulsing at this point.
