Other Absorption Enhancing Strategies

  • Take curcumin with food with fat sources, supplements, and black pepper topping. [140]
  • Take curcumin with omega-3’s such as algae oil, cod liver oil, fish oil, or krill oil, for increased synergy. (Animal studies) [141]
  • Take curcumin with warm drinks, or at least not cold beverages. (Animal Studies) [142]
  • Take curcumin with resveratrol and quercetin supplements or food sources. (In vitro and animal studies) [143] [144]
  • Take curcumin in divided doses throughout the day. [145]
  • Take curcumin patiently for 10 days to allow a build-up in the blood, which causes some manufacturers to suggest doubling dosage during this initial time if time is of the essence. [146]
  • Take curcumin without green tea if possible, as the active green tea compound, ECGC, “antagonizing”, or blocking curcumin absorption. (Possibly overstated) [147]
