Hi, I take curcumin daily but as I am moving to Africa, it's going to be impossible to get hold of curcumin there + very expensive shipping if it doesn't get stolen.
I have been looking up online, on ways to extract curcumin, basically most need a lot of things that e.t.c Since curcumin is soluble in oil, I have been thinking, if I get turmeric powder/ white pepper, mix it with olive oil, heat it up for while ( curcumin has high heat stability) and let the curcumin become soluble in the oil, maybe leave it for a week then extract the oil with something like a coffee filter. Do you think this would work? I know turmeric has like 3% curcumin, I wonder if it will all dissolve? Also, when I have extract the olive oil / curcumin mix. Do you think it would be possible to add lecithin to the mixture ?
Any advice on how to achieve, any curcumin extraction at home with readly available items, would be most welcome. Plus advice on achieving
the above method.
