A delivery of supplements.


I picked a failed delivery from the sorting office this evening; a couple of packets of supplements.As time goes by, I have tried various new supplements and sometimes just forgotten to replace supplements that I had been using.  Tonight’s parcels contained one supplement that is always used (turmeric) and one that I have never tried before (celery seed).  Apart from those, I have re-stocked on supps that I had run out of long ago:- biotin, bilberry, milk thistle and gotu kola.



Tumeric, I have heard it is good but what is it mainly for?  (I cannot remember - no surprise there, I feel like I have half a brain most of the time).I might add it to the many!Jam

Hi Jam!You are another one of those CAPers that is like a sibling in synch.Turmeric is one of the absolute basic essential supplements of this protocol.  As MacK reminds us, it fights inflammation. I'll risk my head being jumped on here but let me say, I have heard that turmeric is 100 x more effective if you take it with black pepper or, as I do, a capsule of the black pepper ingredient: BIOPERINE. I buy a bottle of bioperine capsules from Swanson and pop one at the same time as I take the turmeric capsule. Look at it like this; either take one turmeric capsule and one bioperine capsule or take 100 turmeric capsules and no bioperine or black pepper. I believe it is possible to buy turmeric capsules with the additive already included too.  Also, be aware that turmeric is not water soluble; you need to take it with fat / oil; so take it along with the fish oil or flax oil capsules you're supposed to be taking.  Take all this with food.Hey, Jam, there's you, me and a few others that ain't about to be out-done by these overtakers.  Let's show 'em and let's hear a bit of good news from you soon.LaughingG
