    Turmeric (Curcumin) May Slow Bone Loss In People with SCI

    I don't know if this recent article/news has been posted previously, but it sounds as though it could potentially be good news for many of us:

    I wonder if you can get enough in your diet or would you need supplements?

      I read about this a while ago, you have to consume a considerable amount daily.

      We're talking 8g's of Curcumin a day(Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric, https://myfuturepharm.com/curcumin-v...he-difference/)

      The off the shelf dosage is around 500 mg Capsules, if this is pure enough then 16 tablets a day ???

        Minor detail, eh?

          Also the number for the femoral neck is barely significant (and they don't even list a P value).

          Going on their own numbers there was no difference between the control group and the curcumin group for the hip. Seems like minimal to no benefit, probably not worth swallowing 16 pills a day.
