      I take Longvida 400mg pills. If I recall correctly, the bioavailability of curcumin has been greatly improved in these Longvida pills(as opposed to 'standard' curcumin supplements).

      That one? Seems one of the best, check the reviews.

      NAC was one of the initial supplements I tried after hearing about it on here. Seems another example of where a dosage amount and brand name would help. As a sidenote, I stopped taking mine after the bottle developed a very strong, almost sulfur-like smell - really not long after I got it and maybe even from the start before I noticed. Has anyone else had this issue with it?

      NAC is known for having a foul smell.

      NAC and B-complex are the only two things I make sure I never run out of. I'm convinced the vitamins have helped my baseline tinnitus, and the NAC helps me recover from spikes faster.

      Try Zinc Picolante in the evening and see what happens. There is a thread on here where a guy had noise damage and taking Zinc silenced his T after a few days. I was getting good results with Nac and B-vitamins but it always came back again in the evening. Soon as I took Zinc the next morning lying in bed it was just a low sizzle that I could easily tune out. Just make sure to avoid calcium, magnesium and phytic acid rich food 2 hours before and after taking Zinc so your body can properly absorb it. Also make sure to drink a lot of water, it will make you thirsty.

      Another one to include is Magnesium. There's a lot of evidence pointing towards Magnesium as helping with noise induced T.

      Keep in mind Magnesium could temporarily spike your T. Funny that, it can both relief and spike T.

      I was taking a supplement for a while called Neurozan. It contains a load of things, including ginkgo biloba, zinc AND magnesium, amongst other things. Interesting that you say the magnesium can interact with the zinc.

      I thought I was getting some positive results from this pill, but was never wholly convinced. There were even times when I could not hear any tinnitus for a few seconds in a quiet room. Your advice on when and how to take the zinc could help explain those patchy results.
