Hello fellow EC members. I have to provide my input on the usage of Turmeric. I consumed turmeric for 6 straight months. I did take it with quite a few other supplements but it did nothing for me. I was using it for the anti-inflammatory effects mainly but also for the other properties it has as well.

I was taking the turmeric with black pepper for better absorption. I even added EVOO as well to help the absorption even more. I would mix 1/2 tsp. of turmeric with 1/8 tsp. black pepper & 1 tbsp. of Olive Oil. I would stir the mixture really well with a toothpick before consuming.

I took this mixture on an empty stomach as well. I did this 3X daily so I was getting 1 1/2 tsp. of turmeric daily. I saw absolutely no changes whatsoever in inflammation or any other of the supposed health benefits of turmeric. Just like so many other supplements I've tried I didn't see much benefit from taking it. I know that I have a wide range of health issues so 1 supplement isn't going to make a dramatic change for me.

I never did increase to taking more than 1 1/2 tsp. daily because I didn't see any benefit. Maybe I should have went up to 2 tsp.+ daily but I didn't want to take that chance. I should have at least seen some changes during the 6 months of using it so I just stopped consuming it completely. That was over a year ago & I don't plan on trying it again either. I know this particular article is about cancer so I can't reply directly about the anti-cancer properties of turmeric. Thanks & God Bless all of you guys!
