Hi,

I've suffer from back problems, and some joint pain.  I thought the curcumin might help.  I took some for the 1st time yesterday, and it did seem to help, but today, I'm definitely feeling off, and maybe a bit of hot flashes.

Anyone else experienced anything like this?  Will this go away?  I would be tempted to try a lower dose, but it looks like a capsul and not a pill, so I don't think I could really break it in half.

Thanks,

Welcome, Kroneborge.

Have used curcumin for years and never felt anything like you describe.  Let's see if anyone else chimes in.

Please contact Life Extension's Customer Service department at 1 800 678 8989 or email customerservice@lifeextension.com if you wish to return the product.   

Although it may be a coincidence that you feel the way you do after using curcumin, Life Extension needs to log a product reaction for this item.  If you would please send me a private message with your name, address, and the lot number on the bottle, it will be forwarded to the appropriate department.

I've taken Life Extension's Bio-Curcumin for about 6 months (and for 3 months at a double dose) and have not had any noticable side effects. If it were me, I'd stop taking it for a couple weeks, then try it again (in case something unrelated had caused the symptoms).

Good luck,

Elaine

I took curcumin in various forms and indeed, I got hot flashes particularly after exercising or at night. In general I felt I was not as cold as before (saves on heating bills!).
I do not know if this is a sign of good absorption.
I have found the same effect when taking curcuma powder in tomato juice with some olive oil and the whole thing being blended at high speed.
This way one can find the best dose. I had taken about a table spoon of curcuma powder in a cup of tomato juice along with a teaspoon of olive oil. This tastes like drinking mustard, but it is effective against sinus inflammation. And likely against pain from arthritis and other inflammation disorders.

does anyone know if LEF's bio-curcumin is one of the most bioavailable curcumin supplements on the market?? 
I've read that curcumin is notorious for poor absorption, and I've also read LEF's explanation as to why they believe their curcumin supplement is more bioavailable than most preparations on the market, but I'm curious if anyone has done outside research on this issue...?

I have a sister that takes bio curcumin as an anti inflammatory because she cannot take the usual items. I have also taken it myself for a few months but to no real observed effect.

My dad, OTOH has been taking bio curcumin since his cancer diagnosis, and rightly or wrongly he and his wife feel that it's been one of the reasons for his good results. He's been on 6 to 8 a day. We're using a shot gun approach in his treatment though, so it's difficult to quantify what is actually working. I have him on a lot of selective supplements and he has been able to go thru a complete chemo therapy routine at the age of 77. It was his cancer treatment success that led everyone else in the family to give curcumin a try.
