Stretch out with your peelings!

It’s Friday, and I don’t feel like posting about anything too serious. But I did want to say something about BCM-95. A few blog readers have sent me messages about this supposedly more bioavailable form of curcumin.

On another topic, I thought you and some of your readers might be interested to know (if you haven’t seen it already) that the Nutrition Data website has added an “inflammation factor” listing for the various foods it documents. Here’s the home page with a sample listing ( and here’s the explanation for the meaning of the IF (
