Maybe this is old news, but I read a recent post on 'natural news' about the positive effect of turmeric on skin elasticity and thickness. Here's the natural news post:

Here's the study's abstract:

Apparently turmeric has an affinity for copper ions, so maybe it helps incorporate copper into the skin?? If that's true, maybe people could supplement with turmeric or curcumin.

Dear CD:

Actually if you do a search for "turmeric" on our forums, you'll find that some clients have asked about or mentioned products containing turmeric extract (some posts dating back to 2005).

Those threads might be interesting for you to read.

Best Wishes,
