    if they seem utterly indispensable buy some little vials and shake the cinnamon in your morning joe and the turmeric on your eggs.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    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.

    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.

    I wanted to say I understand wanting to supplement. I think getting it naturally by seasoning food is best for absorption. However, for some, it is either capsule or nothing, so why not go with a capsule? My Integrative Medicine doctor was all about turmeric. My issues (at that time) were labeled as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome but turned out to be something else.

    All you are really going to be paying for with a supplement is the same ground spice you'd be getting in the spice aisle in a clear capsule. Alternative options to buying a supplement are buying the dried spices and encapsulating them yourself or you could dehydrate the spices yourself and encapsulate them. If you do choose to buy them, in my experience so long as you do just a bit of label reading, the spice doesn't have fillers and the capsule is either just gelatin or modified starch or cellulose. I wouldn't go as far as to call that a supplement full of fillers.

    You can also add both to your cup of tea (or coffee, if you don't like tea). I often make an herbal tea of just cinnamon and turmeric, maybe some black pepper, ginger or nutmeg. It makes a nice chai tea. It wouldn't mess up your fasting, and you could even drink it with your meal or just before bed or just after you wake up. It probably has about the same amount as you'd be taking in pill form, costs less, and is likely more easily digestible (no capsule in the way).
