I keep reading more and more about the amazing anti-inflammatory effects and anticancer effects of curcumin (the stuff that gives the herb tumeric its color). And it’s been shown to inhibit cancer at every stage (i.e. survival, proliferation, invasion, angiogenesis and metastesis). But there are dozens and dozens of products on the market with bold unproven claims and even outright false advertising. A big consideration is how much of the curcumin you take actually reaches the bloodstream and tumor or affected organ(s). My research indicates that we’re flushing a huge amount of curcumin down the toilets of the world.
In my search for truth and clarity on the confusing issue I’ve found the blog of Dr. Josh Trutt (truttmd.com) tremendously helpful. In this webinar during minutes 26 through 40 (you can use your cursor to move the little red button at the bottom of the video screen ahead to minute 26 so you don’t have to listen to minutes one through 25) he clarifies why anyone interested in preventing alzheimers or trying to prevent, manage or bring into remission cancer should consider adding curcumin to their roster of supplements and what he believes is the most effective curcumin brand on the market of the top three.
Dr. Trutt has no financial interest in any supplement brands. His company sells a package of various brands of supplements which effect longevity and he is always on the look out for the most effective brand of whatever supplements are in that pack (such as curcumin).
NOTE: The first 25 minutes of the webinar cover recent findings on multivitamins and minutes 41 onward cover vitamin D–the benefits of the right levels and the detrimental effects of too much.
