Starting Curcumin, Need Help Choosing Between These Two

Post  johndoe1225 on Tue May 03, 2016 4:32 am

Hey everyone!

I'm going to finally start taking curcumin, but I want advice on which of these two to take:

The first one is Vitamin Shoppe brand and seems to be a higher dosage:  

Supplement Facts

Serving Size 1 VEGGIE CAP

Servings Per Container 120
  Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
TURMERIC EXTRACT - (CURCUMA LONGA)(ROOT) STD TO 95% CURCUMIN 855 MG 900 Mg N/A*
BIOPERINE(R) - (PIPER NIGRUM)(FRUIT) STD TO 95% PIPERINE ALKALOIDS 4.75 MG 5 Mg N/A*

The next brand is Life Extension, Super Bio-curcumin:

Supplement Facts

Serving Size 1 VEGETARIAN CAPSULE

Servings Per Container 60
  Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
BCM-95 CURCUMIN - TURMERIC 25:1 EXTRACT (ROOT) {STD. TO 95% TOTAL CURCUMINOIDS COMPLEX WITH ESSENTIAL OILS OF TURMERICRHIZOME BY HPLC (380 MG)} 400 Mg N/A*

And just for good measure, my current regimen is, more or less:

~20g MSM, 3g vitamin C
~4,000 IU vitamin D3, 300 mcg vitamin K2, 200-400mg Magnesium Glycinate
2,500 mcg biotin
30 mg zinc

And I'll be starting a complete B-complex at half dosage (by Life Extension) probably this week sometime, so that ups the biotin to 3,500.

Thanks!

EDIT: Based on advice from another forum I think the VS brand would be the smarter choice, still welcome discussion though!

Well, I am a little biased since I developed this Nrf2 activator myself (it has the overall best value out there).

Curcumin works much better with the other actives, there is a synergy. Also there are no fillers.

Thanks a lot, that looks like a great price for that product, unfortunately due to convenience (VS is literally blocks from my house) I had to choose between those two I mentioned.

I actually think I'll go with the LE brand rather than the VS brand based on discussion on a different forum, it seems to have a higher dosage in the long run, even though technically it's a lower dosage, due to bio-availability.
