I believe that pure circumin is the active, therapeutic portion of turmeric that is concentrated in the turmeric supplements so that you don't get as irritated as one must to get an equivalent dose of it by taking the cooking spice alone- i.e. it is far more effective to take the supplement than the spice. But as for me, even the supplement seems to flare me up a bit.
