a question of dosageIt must be understood that everything depends on the dosage. Turmeric is consumed in the form of capsules, tablets, dietary supplements, spices, dried roots, fresh roots, and each form of turmeric has a different concentration of curcumin.The powder, the dried and fresh roots are generally for food use, and, apart from the contraindications and possible drug interactions mentioned below, they do not present any danger.

It is especially the capsules, tablets and dietary supplements that can cause problems, if they are highly dosed.

In this mode of taking, always refer to the instructions for use and medical advice.

Check out how to use turmeric for health to learn more.What are the contraindications of turmeric?

As a precaution, turmeric is contraindicated in people:suffering from obstructions and gallstonessuffering from liver diseaseshowing signs of allergy to this plant (rashes, pimples, etc.)having a medical intervention or dental extraction within 15 days

These people should take advice with their doctor before taking turmeric, dietary or therapeutic.

If you suffer from stomach ulcer or duodenum, avoid consuming turmeric in high dose as it may increase irritation. At a dietary dose, this is not a problem.What are the side effects of turmeric?

Side effects of turmeric are rare to non-existent. According to medical research, the effect of fresh turmeric and turmeric powder in food is safe, if it has been chosen well (quality, without pesticides or adwroteives, etc.): see our article on how choose your turmeric well, in order to select it well and thus avoid any adverse effects related to its quality.

In food doses, it does not pose a real risk.

However, high doses of turmeric can cause some side effects, but without serious consequences, if there is no allergy.The most common adverse effects are:dry mouthbloating and flatulencea warming effect that can be unpleasant for postmenopausal women or women prone to hot flashes.possible heartburn at very high doses.

A real overdose can lead to nausea and vomiting.

Turmeric during pregnancy and breastfeedingAs a precautionary principle, the European Medicines Agency recommends not taking turmeric during pregnancy or breastfeeding, except for food use.

So there is no problem putting a little turmeric in food, but no cure.

Why ? Because turmeric is used to treat the absence of menstruation and to help the elimination of stagnant blood, moreover, in large quantities, it could stimulate contractions of the uterus.

Probable interactions between turmeric and drugsAnticoagulantsTurmeric has anticoagulant properties, therefore its consumption, food and therapy, associated with anticoagulant or antiplatelet treatment, must be done with the informed opinion of a doctor.

Indeed, the anticoagulant effects of turmeric will increase the thinning effects of drugs, which can have serious consequences (bleeding, hemorrhaging, bruising, etc.).

Studies have shown that turmeric can be as effective as atorvastatin, a blood thinner prescribed for its cholesterol-lowering effect.

Common anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs include aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), clopidogrel (Plavix), dipyridamole (Persantine), AVK (anti-vitamin K), ticlopidine (Ticlid), warfarin (Coumadine ), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, etc.

Be careful, it's not just drugs that can be anticoagulants, some plants or spices can also have the same properties, among the most common: garlic, ginger, ginkgo, ginseng, tonka beans, etc.AntacidsAntacids are used to reduce gastric aciwrotey, and less often, for the healing of peptic ulcers.Turmeric could inhibit the action of antacids and cause certain side effects such as bloating, gas, chest pain, nausea and stomach cramps.

The combination could even have the opposite effects of antacids, ie increase acid secretion.This is especially the case in people who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease.

The most common antacids are Cimetidine (Tagamet), Famotidine (Pepcid), Ranitidine (Zantac), Raniplex, Nizaxi, Omeprazole, Maalox, Rocgel, Xolaam, etc.AntidiabeticsTurmeric has antidiabetic properties, so combining the spice with taking antidiabetic drugs increases their effects, and this can cause side effects such as hypoglycemia, excessive sweating, tremors, blurred vision, dizziness, anxiety, etc.

Common antidiabetics include biguanides, sulfonylureas, meglitinides, thiazolidinediones, DPP-4 inhibitors, SGLT2 inhibitors, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, bile acid sequestrants , etcAnti-inflammatoriesAmong all the properties of turmeric, we find its anti-inflammatory properties, it is often for this that it is consumed, so if you take anti-inflammatories, then it can cause an overdose and lead to certain adverse effects.

Indeed, turmeric would be as effective as paracetamol and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, to relieve all types of inflammation, especially for osteoarthritis, ulcerative colitis, etc.

However, there are studies, in particular an Italian study, which showed that the association of turmeric with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory treatment, allowed accelerated healing.

Nevertheless, ask your doctor for advice, if you fall into this category, before taking turmeric.

To conclude, it is always important to remember that it is not because a product is natural that we can do anything.

The effects of spices are very real and effective, which is why you have to take precautions and get informed before embarking on a cure.Remember that food use, except in the event of a drug interaction or proven contraindication, does not pose a problem.
