    Is there a reason you'd prefer supplements over using them in the food you're eating? Just curious.

    Not sure if it's an option, but I would think you could just get your own high quality spices and put them in capsules yourself...

      I don't know, but I once bought cinnamon as a supplement and it's just cinnamon in a capsule. Save your money and just make some kind of health drink with what you can most likely can buy more cheaply in the spice section.

      Just a suggestion: ACV + turmeric + cinnamon + water. Use a little bit of warm/hot water to get them into solution. Top off with cold water. Add a couple of drops of stevia if it's too sour. If you take any other supplements, you can drink them down with this drink.

        um, i pick "c"-- eat them. both spices are more beneficial when heated with a bit of oil or butter to release nutrition. just cook with them and stop wasting money on pills with dubious concentrations and questionable freshness.

          Not only that, they're both tasty. Why would you want to miss that by putting it in a capsule?

            convenience - I travel so for the supplementation I prefer pill form - of course I do understand the benefits of fresh of which I also take advantage of when I am able but my question still stands for the added convenience when I travel....

                  why would you?

                  as i already said, they are of unverifiable concentration and dubious freshness. what the hell good is a pill full of stale filler?

                      if they seem utterly indispensable buy some little vials and shake the cinnamon in your morning joe and the turmeric on your eggs.

                        Take a shaker of cinnamon and a shaker of cumin with you and add it to your boing restaurant road food if you want. I agree with noodletoy. The supps are expensive placebos at best.

                          I don't think this would give me enough.

                          Plus I fast all day.

                              Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, the FDA treats supplements as food. Unlike prescription and over-the-counter drugs, they can make it to market without proving purity, composition, effectiveness, or even safety. And they can stay there until the FDA proves them unsafe after reviewing complaints filed by doctors and consumers. This can—and does—take years.
