i keep hearing about the anti-inflammatory properties of tumeric. I looked at a few articles, this being one-

ive ordered some heigh strength curcumin with Bioperine. Thought worth a try, keep the momentum going while the biotin is doing so well.

has anyone else tried it?

Hi Clarke yes turmeric is an anti inflammatory and works well for me gp etc poo poo ed it I put it in the grave soup stews etc by it in powder form or some greengrocers have the vegetable chop a bit off and make tea with it not to strong try it and tell us how you get on g

l use Turmeric in cooking as well. lts a lovely spice - in curries and bahjis. Shall start using it more now.

You cab buy that from pure bulk (like the biotin). Do you know how much they took in the study ?

Clarkey, l have just ordered the Curcumin and Bioperine combined capsules from ebay. l was interested to see that it is black pepper. When l first went to someone for aromatherapy - she did a lot of research beforehand and said that black pepper oil was recommended for people with ms.

Will take me all day to take all these supplements. What have we got to lose? - Got to do something.

Certainly walking better - have hardly touched the rollator all day. Left dragging leg is picking up - toes are twitching.

I got my curcumin with bioperine from EBay too. I’m taking it with my flaxseed, as also aids absorption. The amount of tumeric needed, according to the boffins would turn the entire kitchen yellow. Glad we can get the active anti-inflammatory component separately.

So pleased to hear about your progress. Sounds very similar to my experience. Haven’t used my walker for a couple of weeks. My right foot no longer sticks out & drags. Energy generally on the up too.

I was looking at the St. Barts MS blog & saw a piece on curcumin. There’s another blow for the big pharmaceutical companies. Perhaps there is justice in the world?

Hi I find I don’t need to take industrial sized quantity of turmeric to feel a benifit and dont buy it in bulk a little regularly is

What I take, it was an Indian cook who told me the benifits off turmeric and how much to take also the benifits to be had from ginger

How much were you told to take, hillbilly?

Hi again was advised to use turmeric powder witch you can get in any supermarket and to take around half a teaspoon full in some water or milk it’s not that pleasant if we are making stew soup pasta sauce etc it go in that or the gravy for the roast

So everybody gets it our son was here and stayed for lunch after a while he said his knee he hurt playing football was suddenly a lot better he had some soup .

Other thing that helps is ginger tea but it’s best with fresh ginger just grate a bit into a cup and infuse with hot water like tea


Thanks Hillbilly,

I do use ginger root grated into drinks…I will try the turmeric!


More positive research about curcumin

Well l am still taking it Clarkey, along with Swansons Super Stress B Complex/ niacinamide/ and Biotin. l shall up the dose - as l see l can take up to 3 a day. So far only taking 1.

Thanks for the info.

Clarkey - someone else has also posted about the benefits of turmeric. l hope they also read your informative posts.

Hi Clarkey,

I’ve not tried it myself but my daughter has started using it for Ulcerative Colitis.

It’s very good for Dogs and Horses too !!

Here’s a paste that you can make up to feed to your pets if you want to try. (Don’t know if it’s the same proportions for humans though !)


You will need:

125g (4 1/4 oz) Organic Turmeric
2 tsps Organic Black Pepper (freshly ground)
70 ml ( 2 1/2 fl oz) Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
500ml (17 1/2 fl oz) water


Pop turmeric and water in a pan and stir over low heat until thick.

Add the coconut oil and pepper, stir until well mixed.

Simply allow to cool and store in a sterilised jar in the fridge.

Will keep for up to four weeks but best used within two.

(This makes quite a lot of paste so you may want to halve the ingredients.)

The Simple Method

Just make up a daily mix to add fresh over the top of your dog’s dinner (takes me 2-5 minutes).


• 1 teaspoon of Turmeric powder

• 1 dash of Cracked Pepper

• 1 tablespoon of Olive or Coconut Oil (about half an oz)

• 1/2 cup boiled hot water and stir thoroughly (4 fl oz.)

Let the mixture sit for a minute or two and then add to your dog’s food. Some dogs may turn up their noses at this mix being added to their diet. If this is the case you can either start off with small amounts of turmeric or you can try the next alternative.

Good luck !

Sorry for the silence, I’m away at the mo. I’m taking tumeric with bioperine in capsule form. I prefer this as it really stains! I know people giving it to horses. I also have UC, so all good.

As someone who often ‘treats’ her dogs and horses with the same supplements that l use - this is another good add on. We ALL have Devil’s Claw/Apple Cider Vinegar/ Cod Liver Oil/ Kelp/ Biotin and Green lip mussel./Garlic

Whats one more.

Are the curcumin supplements still helping you guys? I’m very keen to try some! Are you taking the “Doctors Best” brands? Also what mg dosage? Thanks!!! X

Just looked at the pot of capsules l have – Maverick Labs - Super Strength Turmeric with added Bioperine [black pepper] l got them from ebay.690mg per capsule - and you can take 2/3 daily.

l have bought turmeric powder x 500g and have been using it in cooking as well as adding it to the dogs dinners. l am now thinking of getting the empty capsules and the gadget to fill them - as l also take high dose Biotin and Thiamine which l buy in bulk powder. l fancy making a mixture to fill the capsules.

Dogs are getting use to the powder in their food -

With the powder a human needs 2 teaspoons per day - the same as a large dog.

Thank you very much spacejacket! … I wasn’t well taking Biotin unfortunately but do add turmeric to all meals and drink down half a teaspoon a day so I am really hoping I can tolerate the curcumin caps… Thank you & good luck making your capsules :slight_smile: x
