Anti Inflammatory Turmeric Mixture.

Notes:

The goal is to have a paste. Add liquids or powders as needed to get to a paste consistency.

About 8 hours after mixing the flavors mingle.

I have left the mixture out of the refrigerator for over a month with no spoilage problems. Not not add water nor any ingredient with water.

Turmeric can die your hands, counter tops, plastic containers. It also fluoresces under black light!

Dosage:

Some where between 1 to 3 grams a day(1/2 teaspoon) Can be washed down with milk or almond milk.

Ingredients:

Turmeric: Three bottles of dry (3 x ~2.5 oz bottle) OR fresh turmeric ~7.5 oz (Trader Joe’s or Whole foods has the smoothest tasting turmeric)

Black pepper: One heaping teaspoon ~ 6 grams (3% black pepper to amount of turmeric) Black pepper - piperine helps with blood uptake of turmeric - curcumin.

Oil: Can be coconut, olive, ghee or another pleasant tasting oil (oil is for bio availability) ~7.5 oz

Sweetener: Honey or Maple syrup or another sweetener: three or more tablespoons to taste.

Salt: to taste.

Garlic or Onion: powder to taste. (I have used fresh garlic with no spoilage problems. Garlic sometimes turns a nice blue when mixed with an oil. Your results may vary )

Other spices: Try out other spices to taste. I have use small amounts of cinnamon, cardamon, cumin. They are tasty. In the end this mixture is almost ~curry paste.

No water. Don’t add any water or any ingredient with water. Water can encourage bacterial growth.

Mixing:

In a 2 cup mason jar.

This order of ingredient adding helps with the mixing.

Add the liquids: oil, sweetener

Add pepper, salt, garlic powder

Add turmeric

Mix. Add liquid until a smooth paste.

That’s it!

  • Wow! Much more sophisticated than I am. I just make a mix of olive oil, tumeric and black pepper when I cook. I primarily use it every morning when I make eggs. I also met with an integrative medicine specialist and they suggested I take supplements.

    But your idea looks a lot more interesting! Thanks for sharing!

  • looks amazing. How did you develop your recipe? Did you modify based on psa????

  • I have not modified based on PSA. How could that work? More turmeric as the PSA rises? I can see taking the the mixture several times a day to keep blood levels high. I have looked at Turmeric (curcumin) studies. I got the 3% black pepper to Turmeric ratio from a study. If you know of any studies- I am interested.

  • I understand you take loads tumeric to get the active dose of curcumin. Of course there may be orher benefit. A monthly pas is our best guide and knowledge of estrogeni effects.

  • I have taken Tumeric extract and pomegranate extract capsules since 2006 when my cancer recurred after prostatectomy.

  • I also take Pomi-T. I am not sure of efficacy. There has been a study on Pomi-T.

  • Luke,

    Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for countless years. I thought you'd be interested in:

    Typically in PCa, the interest is in the curcumin component only. A big concern is bioavailability. The LEF product boasts 5 times the bioavailability of the basic extract. Not very impressive.

    Longvida is seriously bioavailable. It has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier:

    ... which is why NOW sells it as "CurcuBrain":

  • Hi pjoshea13,

    Do you know CuruBrain curcumin is made bioavailable? Is it proprietary information? I looked at their site, no info.

    (This site’s html text field is acting strange)

  • I use 1/2 inch of fresh tumeric root in a breakfast nutribullet smoothie of almond milk, strawberries, kale, apple, banana, and fresh ground flax seed.
