These three supplements I try to take each day: fish oil, turmeric and CoQ10. All three have been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory properties and work together to maximize absorption of turmerics active ingredient curcumin. . Which turmeric supplement works best?
- Bioavailability – Tumeric only contains 3% curcumin by weight and it does not absorb easily into the blood stream. Taking 2-4g daily of a 95% pure extract of curcumin in supplement form combined with piperine (a pepper extract) can boost bioavailability by 20x. Adding a fat source such as a fish oil supplement can boost absorption by another 9x.
- Supplement Quality – Curcuminoid content and insect parts are the two most common things to look out for with this supplement.
Supplements to Consider:
Both of these supplements claim high curcuminoid content, high absorption and have been 3rd party tested. They were found to be within 5% of claimed extract quantity. They also are reasonably priced.
- Doctor’s Best – Best Curcumin C3 Complex – 1,000mg includes Bioperine for increased absorption.
- Life Extension Super Bio-Curcumin – 400mg extract with BCM-95 which claims very high absorption.
