I'm bumping this old thread to ask if anyone has some more information about the interaction between curcumin and mTOR.
There's only one other thread I found using the search function about this topic that is directly on point: http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_supplements/curcumin_good_or_bad
The study that posited a negative interaction between curcumin and mTOR can be found here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19176385
I'm curious to learn if anyone knows what amount of daily curcumin intake would negatively affect the mTOR signaling pathway, thus inhibiting muscle growth, or if any other new information about this relationship has come to light.
Finally, could taking curcumin several hours either pre or post workout help to mitigate any harmful effects on mTOR?
Thanks in advance.
