How is this any better than just adding a quarter teaspoon of ground turmeric to a smoothie?

Grated Fresh Tumeric Root and Ginger Root, 4 cups of water with a few turns of ground black pepper boiled down and then strained, make it very strong - you can add some honey, lemon juice and cinnamon for taste. Keep it in a jar in the fridge and drink one or two shots per day depending on your size (taking it with a meal is best).

A family member has always had a very bad/chronic inflammatory skin condition and nothing ever really helped it, we tried all the prescription and non prescription meds, cutting foods from diet etc. We ran across this by mistake (someone else made it) and didn't even try it for the skin condition and we were in shock as it worked immediately - completely clear skin and zero meds for seven months now.

Edited to add: Afterwards we tried just using a high dose of good quality tablets and they didn't work.

You need to consume black pepper along with turmeric or else it just goes right though you. Google for scientific explanation...

Isn't powder like super cheap? Why spend big bucks on tablets?

Personally, I find the stuff a bit dangerous to use when cooking because it will permanently stain stuff very easily, and as a dye it`s been superseded by superior synthetic dyes. I still like to add it to rice to give it a nice golden colour, and it looks and tastes a bit like saffron rice without being nearly as expensive as saffron. Important in some curries too!
Dangerous would be if someone gets sick from it or has some extreme allergy to it. Been used for year and years in Indian cooking, yet to see any yellow countertops.

There are so many divergent opinions about curcumin (i.e., turmeric) that it's hard to select a product.

Turmeric powder alone is poorly processed by the body (i.e., curcumin goes straight out). AFAIR. Out of the curcuminoids in turmeric root, curcumin is about 2-6%.
Some claim that turmeric powder plus black pepper enhances curcumin absorption.

And then, there seems to be two kinds of products with curcumin:

- products using turmeric extract "95%" curcuminoids (turmeric extract) plus black pepper formulation ("bioperine")
e.g., youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength 500 mg - 120 Veggie Capsules $45 @ costco
^ its ingredients list is on the same webpage. "Youtheory Turmeric supplies the most clinically-studied turmeric extract on the market,4 containing 95% total curcuminoids. The formula is enhanced with BioPerine®black pepper extract."
"Supplies 20X curcuminoids than average turmeric powder"


and

- products using something called meriva curcumin (claimed to increase absorption 29 times)
e.g., webber naturals Advanced Turmeric 500 mg -- 2 x 120 Vegetarian Capsules $42 @ costco
^ ingredients - webber naturals advanced turmeric 500mg

Reviews for both types of curcumin formulations are mixed bags. In addition, it's hard to find out how much you should take and for how long.
