totally confused with so many different types available. some claim better than others. even "scary" studies / fancy graphs by metacurcumin.

 

NovaSOL
Longvida 
Theracurcumin
Meriva 
BCM-95 
MetaCurcumin
 
so which one to get?

To add another one to the list, how about fermented turmeric like the centenarians in okinawa consume?  From what I understand, much of the benefits from curcumin stem from it's effects at the gut biome level rather than your spike in blood serum concentration.

MetaCurcumin apparently boasts it's absorption benefits. But when it comes to actual effects or efficacy on health or cognition, that's where it goes quite.

It seems that Longvida still reigns in 2018.

Here's another formulation and my personal favorite, whey protein isolate bound curcumin, UltraCur. It passes through the intestinal wall as protein and releases it's cucumin.

what do you want to use it for? the best and most expensive version is still that, a herbal thing that wont do anything significant. from all the people i met taking it were always gullible old people who think it will prevent cancer or help with their pain. none of which ive heard helped with, but they are persistent and so are the companies selling it. ive heard FDA warned some companies to stop making false advertisements on it. i sure hope someone takes control of the situation. its completely immoral to advertise it for major things like pain and depression and disease prevention since all the studies are of questionable value, mainly animals and cell lines

now that you have read about that warning regarding curcumin, you can freely browse through this piece discussing massive scam and adulteration when it comes to the products sold with it; http://cms.herbalgra...e70b5969233085d

I'm pretty sure there's a lot of older people who would actually appreciate a 30% improvement in memory from this double blind placebo study on humans -

ive read this one before. from what i remembered we were discussing it on reddit while ago that it was financed by the company that produces Theracurmin which is pretty obvious because the government is not going to bother with finances sponsoring a brand name product lol isnt that obvious? usually from other studies i gathered Indian government does sponsor turmeric studies, but not brand name products, its turmeric as whole

On paper, I like Meriva as a source of choline + bioavailable curcumin.  That said, I'm currently taking Meriva and it might as well be silicon dioxide / cellulose filled placebo capsules.  Theracurmin looks awesome, but it's also seemingly underdosed in all the supplement forms I've found... 30-60 milligrams is a pretty common dose.

 

Longvida seems to win based on bioavailability + adequate dosage (closer to 500mg.)  I'm partial to the Nordic Naturals version that bundles Longvida dissolved into fish oil (in theory, curcumin boosts DHA uptake into the brain, so there should be synergy.)

So alternatively, take longvida powder with fish oil.
