I wanted to mention that a couple of days ago I began mixing quercetin powder with my chocolate curcumin “ganache.” By the way, I bought the quercetin powder from Supplemental Health Formulations (see Curcumin Brands/Sources for info on SHF) about a year or so ago.
Here is a photo portraying the three powders I threw into today’s brew. Left: two grams of quercetin. Top right: C3 Complex curcumin, four grams. Bottom right: SHF curcumin, one gram. I hope the photo is clear enough to show the difference in colour between the two types of curcumin.
As for flavour, well, this mixture tastes like a very rich (thanks to the double cream!) hot chocolate with a spicy edge. Very very nice. That is one reason why I hope that this method will work for me. 😉
Another, perhaps more important reason, one that I have mentioned on a previous occasion, is that mixing these powders into a liquid makes me feel a bit like Harry Potter putting together a healthful potion. It gives me a sense of active participation in the fight against my malignant cells. And, as I watch the powder dissolve and blend with the liquid, I have the time to visualize this mixture as it eventually encounters and kills some of my myeloma cells. I also like the feel of the thick drink as it goes down my throat, coating my tongue and painting it a rather bright shade of orange in the process. I know, I know, this must sound terribly silly. But I don’t get the same psychological feeling of power when I swallow curcumin capsules. Ahhh, it’s hard to explain. There’s only one thing to do: try it for yourself! 🙂
