BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  Turmeric that good?

Dr. Mercola is selling turmeric supplements now.  Is it that important?  He has a long list of benefits, all which sound enticing.

He says that 500 million Indians ingest it daily, but I don't think that they would take it in pill form.  However, M. says that when cooked, it loses its potency.

Any thoughts?

narnia, not at all, Turmeric is a bautiful preventive supplement against cancer, dito it helps digestion and a lot more..... but it has one sideeffect, take care for the O's it's also bloodthinning.....(pray).... it is prooven today as a biologic anticancer treatment here in Europe, dito an immunesystem enhancer  :D
and sorry... Mercola isn't relevant at all for me ;) ;D... :X(dizzy)(funny)(evil)

p.s.
an even more intense reacion can be produced while mixing it with bioperine ;) :D....(whistle)

Mercola reduced it Turmeric? He knows us well we want to take one thing and eat what ever we want and not get cancer. Unfortunately we are more complicated beings. A diet rich in vegetables and fruits also is cancer prevention.

The indian people have been using turmeric in food for thousands of years, not in pill form, and they remain healthy, granted they eat it just about every day.

see my rant about egg yolks.. this is the same.. the more they can high jack a simple ingredient and sell it at way inflated prices the happier.. the same with cinnamon.. vit C in place fo fruit, the list goes on..

and if we don't buy it.. then this doctor and others claim that their pill is special as it is missing some portion or segment.. to now be better!  all hogwash.. just re-read DrD's books and spend money where we are treated as individuals... spend the money on organic food, support the local farmer, shop the fresh sections in the supermarket.  Also find local crafts people when buying a gift or make a card with scraps of pretty anything....        

I have saved thousands by just making up my mind to buy only BTD approved stuff, it requires shopping on line or telephone, already on effort.. It requires me not to shop in the health food store.. a dangerous place for me, as I could spend all kinds of money that then lays around in the form of unused bottles.

I once had a basket of pills from medical doctors.. and showed it to a health practitioner who laughed at that.. a year later I had a basket of her stuff as big or bigger..  she laughed all the way to the bank.

I am so tired of getting all sort of mail reg this or that that I stopped all junk mail.. the only good thing Bush did, is to make that possible!!

and if you still get junk mail with envelopes paid by them. insert mail in and sent it back to them, they will stop sending it to you.  It works!

It's a really nice product. Used it before seeing Dr. D and still buy some. It has ginger rhizome in it as well as turmeric rhizome and extract. Hubby will take one every now and then, but most often we break open a few and season our meat. Lovely, vibrant color, much more so than the ones I've found in the store.

I'm getting turmeric in my Hunter Activator (which is specific to my individuality). I'm not really having that type of meat that often (chicken).

Now, I am having turmeric daily, mainly in pill form.

Funny-- the things that are helping me, I read later about all the benefits (beyond Mercola) and the 'why' of it clicks and I feel so blessed and guided.

I was such a mess.  :P

Are you a Hunter or part Hunter?

I wouldn't compare Indians with the US general population, the diets are different enough that would toss it for me. There are better studies than making a broad generalization like that. If you are concerned about losing potentcy, add at the end of cooking and/or mix it around just before serving. Or put it in a smoothie and you won't even taste it.

I buy turmeric at the grocery store and put it into eggs or other foods. I'm not a big fan of "popping pills," especially for herbs that are tasty enough already.

Just a reminder on any spices, certified organic is the only assurance you have that it hasn't been irradiated.

Yeah...I'm not a pill popper either.  I WAS in my early 20s with Shacklee, but after reading that pills mostly came out the other end, I quit.

I started taking vitamins again a few years ago (the whole food variety) and found that I felt sleepy and tired afterward, so I quit again.  It probably had non-compliant foods in it for me.

I do feel that food is the best supp. and adding the herbs to food may give the best synergistic benefits.  

Any good ways to use turmeric on food besides curries?

It is good for the colon, and liver detox. It has an effect on gut flora but more so what it can do to help keep colon health or restore it. I forget exactly how but somewhere Dr. D has mentioned it.

Oh it taste good and turns stuff yellow too!

I like to add it to rice to turn it yellow. The taste sort of goes away though. I usually use curry for flavor though.

I found a tea from The Republic  of Tea called Tumeric Ginger Green tea.  It's excellent and seems to warm me up nicely!

When I'm able to find it fresh, I add a nub of it to the vegetables for fresh juice.

I grow it in my garden and use it in all sorts of vegetable dishes. It has a beautiful flower too.

I've used it in brown rice. I think I had read that it helps the slower metabolism.

I think it tastes better if you add a a slice of ginger.

Might also add lemon and/or honey (if diet permits).

I thought the GTD trumped the BTD or vice versa depending on which plan your on?.  On the GTD turmeric is a diamond food for me.

Good point AkArtlover!, i buy my organic spices in the bulk section at WF's, it's usually less costly this way.

Narnia,
I use turmeric in all kinds of foods.  I add it my salsa and put on my eggs in the morning.  I add it to lamb, chicken, beef, etc....   Anything you could add curry to would be good.

I love it mixed into my eggs! It's also good sprinkled into soups (although my kids don't like the taste if I use too much) and in making "yellow rice" (or yellow quinoa.)

Measure out your grains. Add some olive oil, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsely,  and turmeric. Stir to distribute the spices evenly.  Then add the water and cook.

The odor from curry comes out of the pores of consumers.

I mix tumeric (curcuma) with herbsalt- as much as the salt will mix with!
Use it whenever you would sprinkle salt on something, like eggs or fish.

You can 'hide' a good pinch in strong tasting or hot sauces without it 'taking over'.
And if you do a curry, add extra  ;D

By the way, curry powder is great sprinkled on fish as well and curry and banana go well together too if you want to get inventive  :)

You can make home made Kefir water ginger ale....

If you have the grains, you use piece of ginger, nob of turmeric, a lemon wedge and lime wedge and maybe a half tsp of baking powder......let it sit out on the counter 24 hours.....then remove stuff in the water. then let the water sit out on the counter...you can add cranberries for a cran-ginger ale - so good - and so good for you!

I just started making kefir water. I have some grains, but cant seem to find fresh turmeric! Headed to W.foods tomorrow morning to look for.

I use turmeric every evening in my salad. Turmeric absolutely has some health benefits or health risk reductions.
