You may have heard of the medicinal benefits of curcumin, which is found in turmeric.
Curcumin has exceptional anti-inflammatory properties.
The drawback of traditional curcumin powder supplements, is that it's not absorbed well in your body.
Theracurmin, a version of curcumin, is more readily absorbed or "bio-available" in your system.
Anyone can benefit from taking theracurmin, but especially those folks who have inflammatory-related diseases or health concerns.
How much should you take? If you're in general health, you should be fine with the regular strength dose (30 mg), one capsule, twice a day.
Someone with inflammatory-related diseases or concerns should take the extra strength dose of 60 mg/capsule, 1-2 capsules, twice a day.
While there's no commercially-available blood test for curcumin levels, the hope is that one will be available in the near future.
Dr. Michael Murray joins Andrea and Lisa to share what theracurmin is, why it works better than traditional curcumin, and who can benefit from supplementing with it.
