Subject: Re: Taking Curcumin ( Turmeric ) and Vitamin D for RA
I had read about curcumin before and I regularly use lots of turmeric in my food.
I found this from a medical article -
"Increased intestinal permeability should be largely improved by dietary addition of compounds, such as glutamine or curcumin, which both have the mechanistic potential to inhibit the inflammation and oxidative stress linked to tight junction opening."
Here's the link to the article -
I was not looking for articles about glutamine but I also take a spoonful glutamine (powder) in a little bit of water or juice!
Regarding Vitamin D - I am a strong believer in my Magnesium supplementation ensuring that I absorb vitamin D - and process calcium properly.
As others would say...don't take supplements without asking your medical team, but as you have seen knowledge in this area is mixed at best!
