Biohacking: Which Turmeric Supplement Works?

tumeric-4

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?

curcumin-2

Supplement Issues:

  • 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.

curcumin-1

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.
