A friend mentioned tumeric to me. Having looked it up it was clear that curcumin was the active ‘element’. I then found your article.
I found it thorough and well rounded and it gave balanced guidance on dosages as well as the other issues that were relevant to me.
Really appreciate that! Your feedback means a lot to us :)
“. Research studies have used between 0.5 g and 7.5 g curcumin per day, divided into three or four eve”
7.5g is equal to 7500mg. Someone would have to weigh 2500kg to be consuming the “acceptable daily curcumin dosage is 3 mg/kg bodyweight“
I think you might mean between 0.5g and 7.5g of turmeric powder. Curcumin is an extract of turmeric.
