Brief Summary:
This study looks to describe the pharmacokinetics of curcumin delivered as a single oral dose in healthy female volunteers. The impact of piperine and silybin on the pharmacokinetics of curcumin is also studied.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: Curcumin Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Healthy volunteers are seen on three separate visits and receive 4 gm of curcumin as a single oral dose either alone or with piperine or with silybin. Serial timed blood draws then are collected for pharmacokinetic analysis.
