My husband has always had dandruff and we have tried many shampoos and concoctions.

Q. Dear Terry, “My husband has always had dandruff and we have tried many shampoos and concoctions. I keep telling him he needs nutritional therapy. Any suggestions? He is 49 and in excellent health otherwise - never smoked and exercises daily. Thanks so much.” — Lisa H., Belmont, NC

A. Dear Lisa, I think your husband would benefit greatly by adding a strong, absorbable curcumin to his daily regimen. Curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, is a potent antioxidant and powerful anti-inflammatory that works via multiple pathways. I recommend taking 750 mg of high absorption curcumin 1-2 times daily. Keep in mind that standard curcumin is very poorly absorbed, so make sure the product you choose features a curcumin with excellent absorption that has been proven in published human studies. The best form I have ever found uses micronized curcumin blended with turmeric essential oils in a patented process. This curcumin has been shown in published human studies to be up to 10 times better absorbed than standard curcumin.

I also recommend your husband try an omega fatty acid product extracted from salmon—without the oil. I prefer to get my omega-3 fatty acids from salmon, naturally bound to phospholipids, in a tablet form. This unique form utilizes a patented, gentle, cold water and enzyme process to extract naturally occurring marine phospholipids with the omega-3 fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). This process creates a supplement that is much closer to nature and how people were meant to absorb and use these nutrients. This is the way you’d get your omega-3s by eating fish – in the natural sn-2 position, not the sn-1 position into which they are twisted when extracted in fish oil. This means a big difference in stability and the ability to transport omega-3s to where they are needed most. Therefore, you only need one or two tablets a day instead of handfuls of fish oil capsules or spoonsful of fishy tasting oils. I would have your husband take 1-2 tablets daily.

Healthy Regards!
