Turmeric Supplement Information

Turmeric, a spice and coloring agent used in curry powder, has been claimed to treat or prevent a wide variety of medical conditions, including:
 
Turmeric contains several compounds that may help to stimulate the immune system, provide anti-inflammatory effects, and prevent blood clots.
 
Although consuming turmeric in normal amounts through food is probably safe, more research is needed to conclude that it is safe when used medicinally. Before starting turmeric supplements, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other drugs you are taking (including other supplements), as well as up-to-date information on your medical history, especially if you have a history of a bleeding disorder or gallbladder disease. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
