I have worked with turmeric for many years. It has a very, very short half life in the body. So short that it's almost useless. What you need to do is get a type of turmeric extract called curcumin phytosome. The trade name is meriva. Different brands sell meriva.
Each curcumin molecule is encapsulated in a fatty, phytosomal capsule that makes it much, much more absorbable by the body.
This is the only kind of curcumin that has ever really worked for my UC. During flares I take about 2000mg per day and it really works. Most other curcumin supplements are garbage.
