Zinc & Curcumin
A study of 82 people compared zinc and curcumin supplements with a placebo among a group of 82 people diagnosed with prediabetes. Those in the study were divided into 4 treatment groups: zinc only, curcumin only, a combination of the two, or a placebo. They were also instructed to follow a reduced-calorie diet and to exercise.
After 90 days, the greatest reduction in markers of diabetes risk occurred among those taking a combination of zinc and curcumin, with the next-best results among those taking only zinc. The combination and zinc groups also saw reductions in Body Mass Index (BMI).
Daily dosages used in the study were 30 mg of zinc, as zinc gluconate, and 500 mg of BCM95, a patented form of curcumin.
