Turmeric Curcumin and Rheumatoid Arthritis


  • Chuck Riggs says:

    I'm curious… How many milligrams of curcumin are in a teaspoon of turmeric?
    I use 1 teaspoon of organic turmeric in all my smoothies, I also add Ceylon cinnamon… And I've had a big reduction in back pain since adding them daily to my diet…

  • MrGridStrom says:

    Every time I add turmeric to some thing I cook, it doesn't really taste so good, I really need to find a way to use it, so its tasty.

  • RJ Padua says:

    How long would you have to consume this before it takes effect?

  • Gisell Seguin says:

  • RauCompany says:

    Good information, as always.

  • JustOneAsbesto says:

    I hope you'll cover the poor bioavailability/combining turmeric with black pepper to increase availability via piperine issue.

  • Suzy Q says:

    I bought some fresh to see if it has a more agreeable taste. I can only stand it in curry, but a dish of curry for lunch everyday would be quite welcome.

  • TheStewieGriffinShow says:

    I find that the easiest way to consume turmeric is to chase half a teaspoon of powdered turmeric with some juice after a meal. Based on a study I found quite a few years back, in regards to increasing its bioavailability by 2,000% by including black or white pepper, I immediately chase half a teaspoon of white pepper with some juice too.

    Tumeric goes really well with chicken 🙂

  • mark31069s says:

    Hey there, great vids. I am 20 years old and race on my college's cycling team. I just recently started eating vegetarian (mostly vegan) for the past 4 months and feel great. But, it seems that I am getting worse joint pain in my knees after I ride or go on a run. What's strange is that it's not directly after I ride, but after I sit for a period of time and get back up. There is also a popping and crunching sound in my knee when I bend it. Sounds terrible for a 20 year old to have, but the doctor's don't seem to have much advice. Do you suggest taking time off to heal my joints? It's very discomforting and I want to keep pursuing cycling, help!

  • Tindy DeMorgan says:
