Welcome Helenkol  :welcome,

It is great to have you!  Your ferritin levels look great, good job with your chelation.

Curcumin, as far as I know, is recommended for it's protection from the oxidative damage of free iron.  I don't believe
curcumin plays a role in chelation.  There are several other products we also recommend for this protection along with curcumin - such as IP6, fermented papaya and vitamins such as vitamin E. 

Curcumin also has several other beneficial qualities such aiding the immune system and skin ailments. 

Thank you once again for joining us,
