Mejorar la absorcion de la curcumina

En este artículo se recomienda consumir la curcumina (el principio activo de la cúrcuma) junto con aluna grasa como aceite de pescado o un emulsificante como la lecitina dado que sino no se absorbe bien.

If your physician agrees with the addition of curcumin and DHA along with the main treatment program, we think that Alzheimer’ patients might want to try the combination of curcumin and dha (should be taken together, because curcumin is not absorbed well unless it is dissolved).  Lecithin appears to improve absorption because it is an emusifier.

Curcumin can be obtained on the web and is fairly inexpensive.. Brands such as Jarrow or Life extension may be okay. For example you can purchase the Jarrow Brand Curcumin95 from Nutrition Dome

or purchase the Sabinsa manufactured curcumin with a pepper compound from Life Extension

For prevention DHA from fish oil or salmon oil (which has slightly higher DHA than EPA and may be superior) could be sufficient.

If however, the disease has initiated, there is membrane loss, and it may be necessary to take purer DHA eg from algae, which can be purchased from Martek dhadepot.com (neuromins200) , and is unfortunately fairly expensive (up to $600 per year)..

DOSES: Although clinical trials are needed, safe doses and extrapolation from animal studies would suggest that.....

if AD is diagnosed.. 600 mg minimum of DHA with 2000 mg curcumin, plus 1 capsule of lecithin.

For AD prevention.. 400 mg DHA (or 2000 mg fish oil, which has only 360 mg DHA) and 1000 mg curcumin (together).

La bioperina es criticada por algunos porque inhibe enzimas de desintoxicación.
