Curcumin & Turmeric
What do you guys think of these and do you you use these?
I use curcumin and cinnamon a lot, never heard of carnitine though. From what I've noticed in myself curcimin helps my bloodflow. I use it in soups, rice and with vegetables.
Now I use cinnamon less, well, actually I mostly just add it to rice. It brings extremely nice flavor to it though.
These are spices, not supplements. I always add cinnamon to smoothies, best sweetener there is.
Yes they are spices but I dont care for the taste of them much but there are alot of good studies on them.
Curcumin is fantastic but has a low bioavailability unless you get the right kind.
I reccomend Meriva or Theracumin.
Cinnamon has a few benefits and tastes great.
Keep in mind that those are spices and closer to "whole foods" rather than supplements.
Not sure about L carnitine's effectiveness.
Circumin and Turmeric have both been shown to be great antioxidants and inhibitors of some type of cancer potentiator.
Carnitine is a key amino acid in fat transport. It also helps the Thyroid.
Cinnamon in low/moderate doses seems to have a lowering effect on blood glucose levels. You can find it in capsule form in the Diabetes isle. Too much is harmful though.
