My mother-in-law had a stroke that left her throat partially paralyzed.
Q. Dear Terry, “My mother-in-law had a stroke that left her throat partially paralyzed. She has issues swallowing softgels, but I really think she could benefit from curcumin. Is curcumin still effective if you pierce the softgels?” — Ava R., Kannapolis, NC
A. Dear Ava, Curcumin is truly the all-in-one solution to treat and prevent disease. I think it would be a great addition to everyone’s health regimen.
A recent study found that up to 40% of Americans have difficulty swallowing pills. Whether it’s from physical conditions or psychological 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. While you can open the softgels, the curcumin can stain and make quite a mess.
Fortunately, the curcumin I prefer is available in multiple delivery systems, including as liquids. I believe the best results are achieved from curcumin blended with turmeric essential oil for enhanced absorption, no matter what form is used for its delivery.
