I often get questions from confused clients about turmeric and curcumin. My clients have heard about all the great health properties associated with turmeric and curcumin, but they don't know how to introduce it into their daily routines. Depending on their needs I recommend either CuraMed or Curamin. Both of these supplements have an indisputable history and evidence backing their anti-inflammatory strength.

Some people use the words turmeric and curcumin interchangeably. They are not the same thing. Turmeric root (curcuma longa) is the traditional Indian spice you cook with. Curcumin is the natural phenol found in turmeric that causes that bright golden color. Curcumin is an extract from turmeric root and is used medicinally in supplement form.
CuraMed is the product name for an evidence-based high dose curcumin supplement. CuraMed is superior to other curcumin supplements because it not only contains curcumin, but also curcumin essential oils. Over 20 studies have proven that it is 10 times more readily absorbed than other curcumin supplements. The higher absorption rate is due to the patented process used to extract both curcumin and the essential oils from turmeric roots.
A growing body of medical science is supporting the use of natural anti-inflammatory supplements for inflammation found anywhere in your body. The benefits of curcumin out weigh the possible side effects because there are literally ZERO side effects from taking curcumin supplements.
Most chronic and acute health problems have an inflammatory aspect. Here are a few examples: arthritis is inflammation of the joints; IBS and Crohns are both inflammation in the intestines; Multiple Sclerosis is inflammation near nerves, and Diabetes causes systemic inflammation; the common cold causes inflammation in the ears, nose and throat. Almost every known condition benefits from reduced inflammation. Curcumin is widely recognized as one of nature's strongest anti-inflammatory substances. That is why curcumin is recommended for such a wide variety of conditions.
When you are in pain or have high levels of inflammation, why not just reach for the over the counter NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories)? Most of us have our cupboards loaded with Aleve, Motrin, Tylenol, and ibuprofen or aspirin. Although these medications are common and seem harmless, they have serious side effects. Major sides effects include dementia, stomach ulcers, Leaky Gut, intestinal bleeding, leucopenia, and malabsorption.
In comparison to the potentially life threatening side effects of NSAIDS, studies have shown there are no side effects of taking daily high doses of curcumin.
I recommend taking CuraMed or Curamin with food to help with digestion. Like most supplements and medications, you could experience upset stomach when taking them without food.
Most health issues have inflammation associated with them. The answer to any type of inflammation, from a common cold to cancer, is reducing inflammation.
Chronic body aches and pains are associated with numerous conditions. Aches and pains are major symptoms of Arthritis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Many, if not all, chronic aches can be reduced by lowering inflammation levels. CuraMed offers anti-inflammatory power without the dangerous side effects.
In the past, depression was blamed on genetics or malfunctioning brain chemicals. Gratefully, scientists have discovered the true root cause of depression: inflammation. The landmark study of 2013 taught us that curcumin decreases depression just as well or better than Prozac.
CuraMed and Curamin both have high doses of highly absorbed curcumin. Curamed is pure curcumin extract and essential oils, while Curamin has curcumin, essential oils and additional herbs targeted for pain. CuraMed has higher doses of curcumin than Curamin.
Curamed is best used to prevent or manage chronic aches and pains due to inflammation. It is also preferred for managing arthritis, digestive disorders and Leaky Gut.
The Curamin formula includes DLPA which works to decrease pain sensations. Curamin is best used for acute or occasional aches and pains like headaches, or recent injuries. For example, I recommend Curamin if you get a headache, but I recommend CuraMed if you have chronic or daily headaches.
Another example is back pain: if you hurt your back working on your garden, then take Curamin. If you have chronic back pain, no matter what activity you are doing, then take daily CuraMed.
Over 3,000 studies have been conducted using curcumin. Tests have recorded participants taking up to 8,000mg (8gms) per day without side effects or toxicity. If you translate the dose to CuraMed 750mg, you could safely take 10 capsules per day without risk of toxicity. I recommend starting with 3 capsules (2250mg) per day and increasing as needed.
Here's a reference guide for common chronic ailments:
For chronic inflammation associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Lyme Disease, take 9 capsules per day for 12 weeks and then decrease to 6 capsules per day. For Depression, take 4-6 capsules per day for 8 weeks. For IBS, take 3 capsules per day (2250mg) for 2 weeks. Increase up to 6 capsules per day as needed for relief. After relief is stable, decrease to maintenance dose.

Thanks to CURAMED I have almost total relief. I have taken turmeric in the past with great success but this tops them all with a total days worth of relief with just one in the morning and one at night.
From Terry Naturally's site:
A nutritionist highly suggested CuraMed. This is an incredible product and I will continue to tell everyone about it!
I have arthritis in my hands and elbows making life very painful. Other medications irritate my stomach. This is the first thing to ease and almost completely get rid of my pain and stiffness without making me feel sick. My only complaint is the pills are large but it's worth it!
I cannot take any N-SAIDS and didn't know what to do for my arthritis pain. Someone recommended this product and while I'm not always pain-free, the discomfort in my back and left leg has improved tremendously.

Vitamin D deficiency is rampant. Some studies show that up to 97% of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D. Most people don’t think about Vitamin D until the summer sun fades and the winter gloom appears. This is the time of you may begin to feel the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.).
If you keep up with nutrition industry news then you probably saw the press release late in 2018 about BCM 95 and Curcugreen. Arjuna Natural is the producer of high-quality turmeric. Before 2019, Arjuna was importing their unique curcumin under the name of BCM 95.
