I am here to help you with your concerns. Turmeric
has anti inflammatory and immunomodulatory action.
It has been used for cancer prevention, arthritis treatment, neuroprotective effect, intestinal gas prevention.
However, the clinical efficacy is not definitely proven by clinical studies.
The turmeric does not absorb well when taken orally.
The usual dose of turmeric is about 1 gram daily.
There are several interactions with turmeric and other medications.
For example, turmeric can increase the risk of bleeding due to its anti platelet action.
Turmeric also can increase the toxicity of ibuprofen.
Hence, you should discuss with your doctor before taking turmeric based on your health situation.
