Curcumin-chocolate recipe/ricetta curcumina-cioccolato

December 21 2007 post: I use one and a half or two small squares of cocoa mass, or 100% chocolate (not cocoa powder, mind you). Cocoa mass looks like a regular chocolate bar, and you don’t need but a small bit. I melt it over very low heat, but you could use a double boiler, if you prefer. I add a couple of heaping teaspoonfuls of dark organic honey, otherwise it’s too bitter to swallow, in my opinion. As soon as these two ingredients have melted (be careful not to burn the mixture, as I have done a couple of times in the past!), I take the pan off the stove and add two grams of quercetin powder and my eight grams of C3 Complex curcumin powder. Stir quickly and eat the mixture even more quickly since it has a tendency to harden. Important note: I put small blobs of it under my tongue, where there are a TON of blood vessels. My idea is to get the dissolved curcumin into the bloodstream without much ado. It would seem that this approach works, which is why I am SO curious to see my next test results.
 
Ricetta in italiano: prendere un quadratino e mezzo oppure due di pasta di cacao(dipende dalla grandezza; ad esempio, se è pasta di cacao dello Slitti ne basta uno e mezzo; se è Domori ce ne vogliono due). Mi raccomando, che non sia cacao in polvere (non so perché, ma mi dà l’idea che funzionerebbe peggio), ma pasta di cacao, che assomiglia alle tavolette di cioccolato normali. Praticamente si tratta di cioccolato al 100%, senza zucchero insomma. Aggiungere due cucchiaini da té stracolmi di miele biologico, il più scuro possibile (tipo, castagno). Scioglierlo a fuoco bassissimo oppure a bagnomaria. Attenzione a non bruciarlo sennò fa veramente schifo (lo so per esperienza, eheh!). Aggiungere due grammi di quercetina in polvere e otto grammi di curcumina, sempre in polvere. Io uso la curcumina C3 Complex. Una volta sciolto e mescolato il tutto, ne metto un po’ sotto la lingua e lo faccio sciogliere piano piano. L’idea è che da lì entra velocemente in circolo nel sangue senza passare per lo stomaco e l’intestino dove viene aggredito in malo modo da diversi enzimi. Ultima cosa: siccome questa specie di pastone cioccolatoso si indurisce rapidamente, bisogna mangiarlo velocemente e, soprattutto, mentre è caldo.

    I googled to find what diluent would work for turmeric and found polyethene gylcol (glycerol?) and sodium hydroxide,(besides polysorbate 80) none of which I know anything about. Hope this is helpful info.

    Hi Margaret –

    How did this work for you? Do you still use it? 16 capsules or 8 tablets every morning of Dr’s Best is a lot to swallow for me.

    Thanks, Karl

    I tried this recipe with one capsules of C3 complex I,am on first week of practical. I didn’t taste any of it
    in my 3 ingredient single serving nutella brownie (mug cup) I got the recipe for it on Pintrest
    2 tbsp all purpose flour, 2 tbsp whisked egg, 1/4 cup +1 tbsp nutella. Combine all ingredients in oversized
    microwave-safe mug. Mix with a whisk untill smooth. Batter will be quite thick. Microwave 1 minute.
    Let cool for about 15 to 30 minutes before eating. My microwave is 1000 watts don’t know about lower
    watt ovens. If you mix the egg and flour till smooth then add the nutella its easier to get it smoother. I
    have 2 more recipes that I haven’t tried yet.
