Piperine increases the bioavailability of curcumin by inhibiting glucuronidation
Recommendations for Cancer:
If you have cancer, please consider curcumin for yourself as following regimen: 1 g/day for week one; if no side effects then, 2 g/day for week two; if no side effects then (can be split into three separate doses). 4 g/day for week three; if no side effects then (can be split into three separate doses). 8 g/day for week four; for eight weeks (can be split into three separate doses).
After 8 weeks, if no improvement is noted, curcumin is less likely to do
anything for you.
