I've used curcumin for years for my prostate cancer. I've also read over 100 research reports on it. It's brilliant in vitro, moderately effective in rats, but its bioavailability in humans is so low it's useless (except, possibly, for colon cancer). I take 8 grams of powder a day dissolved in hot coconut milk (it won't dissolve in water), but some researchers say you'd need at least 21 grams for any to escape from the gut. I take piperine and quercetin with it to try to overcome the bioavailability problem. I've also tried liposomal curcumin, but it's very expensive. Neither form appears to have had any effect on my prostate cancer.

I love turmeric with curcumin when added to foods! My favorite is chicken curry with lots of turmeric powder. Sooo yummy!
