400-1000mg!: Tumeric supplements vary in amount. !000mg is the most potent avaiable from vitamin stores. Take one per day.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Tumeric without one of the the active ingredients of black pepper called piperine is not very well absorbed in your gut. Don't take one without the other. Also, tumeric will stain your teeth if it is not mixed into food. I know from personal experience.
