My mother has paralyzed vocal cords so she needs her supplements in liquid or powder form.
Q. Dear Terry, “My mother has paralyzed vocal cords so she needs her supplements in liquid or powder form. She is really interested in curcumin, but I’m not sure how she can take it. I’ve tried piercing softgels and ended up making quite a mess. Do you have any suggestions?” — Kathy P., Bloomington, IN
A. Dear Kathy, Curcumin is truly the all-in-one solution to treat and prevent disease. I think it would be a great addition to your mother’s health regimen.
A recent study found that up to 40% of Americans have difficulty swallowing pills. Whether it’s from physical conditions or physiological reasons, many people are seeking alternatives.
Choosing a curcumin formula can be very difficult, especially when you are looking for one that is not in a softgel delivery system.
I recommend curcumin that is enhanced with turmeric essential oil and proven in published human studies. Fortunately, this patented curcumin is available in multiple delivery systems. You can find this curcumin in a hard-shelled capsule, which means you can open it up and mix it with applesauce, yogurt, etc. It is also offered in a tablet form that dissolves in water or other liquids. I think either one of these options would be a great way for your mother to receive the many benefits of curcumin.
