Want to find out if anyone is taking a supplement

Sorry for the repeat post, but I have repeatedly tried to use the email address to ask why my message was deleted and then my account was deactivated. I find this disturbing as I thought this was supposed to be a place where we could ask genuine questions and receive genuine answers-- I did not expect to find censorship.

Curcumin's beneficial pro-oxidant activity

Many of the positive benefits of curcumin are a consequence of its pro-oxidant effect on thiol groups which are inhibited by glutathione and n-acetylcsyteine.

The results of this article are consistent with curcumin activation of the Nrf2 transcription factor.
