Hi everyone, just an issue I got regarding my research on curcumin.
I keep finding those issues with some brands/types not having as much bioavailability, but then again there is that other issue of some curcumin sups being to potent and could cause side effects, then again I can't find tell HOW MUCH curcumin is to much.
I am looking to take as much bioavailable curcumin as possible without experiencing any side effects.
Right now I am leaning towards LEF super bio curcumin, which is BCM-95, which claims to be something like 8 times more bio available then standard 95% curcuminoids. However some say that high dosage curcumin causes negates the whole thing somehow, which get's me worried if LEF curcumin is to potent.
.There are a few others that stand out like Jarrows Curcumin 95% ( which to me might be an option just if it happens to be true that BCM-95 might be to potent ).
There is also Doctor's Best, Best Curcumin C3 Complex, 500 mg, 120 Capsules, and Doctor's Best, Meriva, Phytosome Curcumins. ( which from what I found sound like a top contender )
Anyways I'm going to continue my research, but would appreciate if anyone has any preferences even if it's not listed here, or any tips, suggestions, experiences with a certain curcumin supplement, I'm kind of looking to get down to which is HANDS DOWN the best.

Is your research just based on curiousity or you need a good curcumin product to consume?
There is also one more new product Genus Serum, which is Curcumin in nanosize ( particle size of 8.9nm ) its difference from others as it is in serum form and the bioavailability is maximum..
no chemical or prohibitive substances involved .. and best of all, no enhancer like piperine or bromheim
go google it , genus serum.
