Does anyone at PT land take turmeric/ Curcumin supplements? If so, which are the best and have you seen positive effects?

I have purchased those and have started taking them. Too soon for results. I also started adding Simply Organic Ceylon Cinnamon, vs. regular cinnamon, to my coffee. All are worth a try. I’ll check on the brands of the first two.

the fitness program I did. I was 66 at the time, had never really exercised much, and NEVER got sore throughout the entire 6-week program. I love these! I think we took four or five a day.

I take lots of vitamins and honestly never felt one way or the other. All I can do is hope it's doing benefits internally. I take this by Andrew Lessman, which is of very good quality:

Or here it is without the gingerroot:

I've also tried a liquid turmeric before.

Is a great anti inflammatory. We just add the spice to our oatmeal, tea, soups...whatever! I have not heard of curcumin. Will look that up!

It can be beneficial but be aware it is a blood thinner which can be a negative side effect for some people.

Turmeric is a good anti-inflammatory. I use it for my arthritis and I find it works pretty quickly after I take it.

Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric.

Itís effect is enhanced by black pepper, so I like to use a brand that also contains that as an additive.

As someone else said, it is a blood thinner, so it is important to be aware of that and be sure your doctor is aware you are taking turmeric.

I know we used turmeric a lot in recipes so I tried it. It didn't agree with my stomach but it may just be me. I have no doubt long term it would have very good benefits though. I just stick to using it in my pickles.
