Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of the popular Indian spice turmeric, which is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). The other two curcuminoids are desmethoxycurcumin and bis-desmethoxycurcumin. Turmeric has been used historically as a component of Indian Ayurvedic medicine.
Advice & Tips:
When I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, I quickly found out that no one knows what causes it nor how to treat it. Some research showed some nerve regrowth in mice with a curcumin/sesame oil mixture. I checked with my neurologist and he couldn't say yes or no, so I've been taking it since. Has it helped? I don't know. My numbness doesn't seem to have progressed but maybe it wouldn't have anyway. Can't tell if there's been any regrowth either. But the HOPE is still there :)
