Side Effects Of Turmeric

Turmeric, or Curcumin, has been touted by doctors and Ayurvedic holistic medicine experts for years. You can take it as a supplement or digest it in food rich in curry powder, as it is the main ingredient that gives curry its bright yellow coloring. However, as with any supplement, Turmeric comes with its own list of possible side effects.

It is safe in recommended doses, as a rule, but use of more than the amount your doctor suggests can cause stomach upset and other gastrointestinal problems like diarrhea and constipation. You should always inform your doctor before taking any supplements. In addition, you should let him or her know about any pre-existing conditions you may have.

For example, you should not take Turmeric if you have a bile duct blockage, a blood-clotting disorder, or a history of stomach ulcers. It can adversely affect these conditions, making them worse. Turmeric Curcumin thins the blood, so large doses should be avoided when surgery is needed.  In addition, you should avoid this supplement if you have gallstones or gall bladder problems. Women who are pregnant or nursing should use discretion, as the effects are unknown. If you are pregnant, you can eat Turmeric (curried) food with no problem, but supplement use has yet to be researched thoroughly.

As with any natural product, you should always take only the recommended dosages. For questions, comments, concerns, or orders, log on to www.tattvasherbs.com.
