Sounds great to me!
I would love to hear your positive experiences with Turmeric.

I take turmeric-only supplements now because since going gluten free (which happened about 6 months after the last cholesterol test and I haven't had that test done again) because Stone Free doesn't agree with me anymore. I don't know if it's because there's hidden gluten or what - the company can't confirm either way. But, during my brief stint seeing a rheumatologist, he was VERY impressed I was taking turmeric (he's east Indian) and told me he would like to do studies because in India, people eat a lot of turmeric and have lower autoimmune disease than in the US. Also, it's being highly researched for people with cancer and cystic fibrosis, as well.
I think it's good stuff. I don't think I'd enjoy drinking it every day, but there are many brands of capsules out there to take if you prefer. The ideal dose is 800mg a day at this point, according to my rheumy.
Cool thread! I hope others reply...
