Absorbing Flavonoids Better

Monday, 13 August 2012 08:11 AM

Question: Will taking fish oil, extra virgin coconut oil, and CLA help the absorption of curcumin and quercetin?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

I have found that curcumin and quercetin are both absorbed much better when mixed with coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil (the latter has been confirmed by experimental studies). Curcumin and quercetin are poorly absorbed when taken as a dry powder in a capsule. This is a major problem with all flavonoids. For even better results, you can warm the coconut oil until it is liquid and mix the curcumin powder with it; this gives you a powerful combination.
