Notes from DrKF:

I use curcumin and turmeric frequently in practice, as do my colleagues. I also drink a hot mug of our extra-yummy golden milk almost every single day, and I take a little extra in capsule form for safe measure. It’s difficult to overstate the importance of this rockstar polyphenol.

Dosage: 500–1000 mg per day. Take a product that is standardized for curcuminoids. Curcumin is not very bioavailable (i.e., it’s tough to absorb) thus, good brands will address this issue, either through their formulation or the compound or by including a smidge of black pepper (as piperine), as it aids in absorption. Also, curcumin is fat soluble, so take your capsules with a fat-containing meal or take with your omega-3 fatty acid supplements to further improve absorption.
