Curcumin & PCa

In the past few weeks we’ve received several questions about curcumin. So, this week we’re re-running a video Dr. Myers prepared about curcumin back in 2010. (To view past posts, simply scroll down the page.)

    Curcumin chelates with Fe, as do the tannins in pomegranate extract (same for green tea). After a very thorough G.I. workup, which was negative, my oncologist believes they played a clinical role in my developing an iron deficiency anemia. Iron supplements taken on alternate days from the antioxidants seems to have done the trick and corrected the clinical hematological problem.

    Is there any data on sub-lingual/buccosal absorption of curcumin? It would also bypass primary liver metabolism if delivered sub-lingually. Does anyone make curcumin chewing gum?

    In discussing the use of estradiol as a PC therapy, Dr. Myers mentioned the need for a blood serum level equal to a 40 year old woman, as I recall. I looked up the levels for mature women and found they varied from 43 to 498 pg/mL (ref.range). What would be the serum level for the PC therapy?

    I recently posted on curcumin with a link to a radio interview with a Baylor scientists who is one of the leading experts on curcumin. He says the best curcumin product for enhanced bio-availability is curcumin BCM 95. See

    I’ve kept a Google alert for several months now on curcumin and I’ve been amazed at the number of scientific studies that are reporting hopeful results on the use of curcumin for all sorts of ailments. See:
