I don't know if that was 8g of turmeric or concentrated curcumins, but I recall reading that 8g straight turmeric yields 2g of curcumins. A lot of the turmeric supplements concentrate the curcumins to 95% of the total mass. Check the labels.

FWIW, I started 600mg concentrated turmeric (1 pill/d of Solaray "turmeric one daily") for 6 weeks and upped it to 1200mg 6 weeks ago. I'm feeling some benefit on the pain front and sleeping better, although that is not the only thing that has changed for me recently.

I used Meriva curcumin for a long time, then switched to Longvida by Now Curcubrain. I've never noticed any difference of any kind on them but I continue to take them anyway because I figure they are one of the few supplements widely agreed to be potentially helpful in AD prevention? Maybe I need to double the dose, but I'm rather small so not inclined to increase and muck around too much with something with affects in my body I can't see. I'm glad it worked for your mast cell issue JG. I didn't realize people in that community were benefitted by it. I didn't get any improvement from it in that department either.
ApoE 3/4 > Thanks in advance for any responses made to my posts.
