    Hi

    Does anyone take Curcumin and/or Serrapeptase. This is supposed to aid inflammation. I did try it a few years ago and seem to remember I felt pretty good on it.

    Would be very interested in other peoples views or experiences of this.

    Thanks
    Jill

    I currently take Curcumin, which has a large track record as an anti-inflamatory in medline and medical papers, as well as cholesterol regulator. The latest forms of curcumin, treated with phytosomes (a process known as Meriva) have stronger bioavailibility. I have been able to go down on my prednisone and my cholesterol numbers are significantly better. I take one 500mg a day. I am quite confident that it is safe, as Turmeric is a spice in use for centuries. I am wary of Serrapeptase, and other supplements that are not plain food (fish oil, garlic, ginger and the like). Either they are useless or they are potent, but if they are potent, they can interfere with medications and backfire.
    I hope this helps.
    Best,
    Vincent

    Hi Jill,

    Always ask your doctor before trying something out.
    You never know what might mix or might not mix.

    Love,
    Lyn
