I believe turmeric isn’t easily absorbed into the body and therefore is advised buy a product that includes black pepper
you may be right, adam.

I haven't verified the link below so deal with them at your own risk.

In a number of clinical trials, the results have been nothing short of remarkable...

It's got bovine gelatine, so not vegetarian/vegan/kosher/halal.

Also it has no peperine such as black pepper. So it won't be effective for long.

Get one that has the black pepper. It's just lazy not to do it.
Better still, use Turmeric regularly in your cooking.

Yes it's the curcuminol compound that you want and it varies in the different varieties... Either way ensure you put some black pepper in with the turmeric to get the benefits.
You can buy a kilo of turmeric in Indian shops for a couple of quid.

Not the same stuff, you're need to munch on quite a bit to get the same amount.. to be honest we don't know how much curcuminol is on this stuff either..

Not sure you are correct about that - “If you want anti-inflammatory effects you need to get 500 to 1,000 milligrams of curcuminoids per day.” When using the spice on its own, the common rule of thumb is that there are 200 milligrams of curcumin in one teaspoon of fresh or ground turmeric (though it varies a bit depending on the source and origins).

I also believe that Nu-U might have replaced this with a Curcumin/Black Pepper combination.
"Turmeric and curcumin, one of its constituents, have been studied in numerous clinical trials for various human diseases and conditions, but the conclusions have either been uncertain or negative"

The Missus takes this. God only knows why.

These capsules say ingredients are: "500mg of turmeric per capsule". So it is the same stuff, not extracted curcumin.

The way they do this is by choosing specific strains of turmeric for its curcumin content.

Same problem with cinnamon, only some strains have enough of the good stuff to be viable.

There is precisely zero mention of the curcumin content in these capsules. Might as well buy a kilo of turmeric for £2.

The accepted way to use the powder therapeutically is to make "golden paste", with coconut oil and black pepper...
