16. I am already taking your other curcumin supplement. If I take the joint renewal, is it necessary to take the other supplement?
We do have different curcumin materials in these items—with different bioavailability levels. The Meriva® curcumin in "Joint Renewal" has very good clinicals showing support specifically for joint health. And both have very good clinicals showing reduced inflammation overall. You cannot overdose on curcumin. They can both be taken daily per the directions on the bottles.
While you can get additional benefit from taking additional curcumin, the clinical research on the UC-II collagen indicates that 40 mg daily (the amount in our supplement) is the most that will be useful in maintaining joint health. If you are interested in additional curcumin, we really do recommend taking our Curcumin EX Plus product, instead of taking additional doses of Joint Renewal.
