  1. Turmeric Review review by AstroNutrition In-House Review on 3/4/2011
    Rating

    Turmeric is a spice frequently used in cooking in India such as in curries. Turmeric has also been used as a dye, flavoring, and medicinal herb. Medicinally, turmeric been used in India to treat stomach issues and liver problems. Topically it is used to heal sores and improve the glow and luster of skin.

    When used as flavoring, turmeric provides antiseptic properties and acts as a natural preservative. The antiseptic capabilities make turmeric useful for treating coughs and colds. It is also believed to be a general tonic, diuretic, expectorant, and blood purifier.

    Turmeric is also an anti-inflammatory, which makes it an effective pain reliever. Turmeric pastes can be used to treat sprains, swelling, skin disorders, and insect bites. It can also treat pain caused by dental issues when used as part of a mouth rinse.

    Turmeric can help treat stomach issues including diarrhea, flatulence, and worms. Since it is rich in iron, it is also useful for treating anemia. Consuming turmeric in warm water can also help prevent asthma attacks.

    Curcumin is the active part of turmeric. Turmeric extracts for medicinal purposed should possess 5% curcumin. Medicinal turmeric comes in capsules, tinctures, dried, powdered, and cut root forms. Herbalists sometimes recommend using turmeric with bromelain to improve the absorption and anti-inflammatory ability of turmeric.

    Typically turmeric is taken in standardized capsule dosages of 400 to 600mg three times daily. A typical tinctures dosage is 15 to 30 drops daily. When used as a powder a daily dosage of 1,000 to 3,000mg is recommended. Cut root daily dosage is usually 1,500 to 3,000mg daily.

    Turmeric is safe at the recommended dosage, however taking too much or for too long can cause upset stomach and gastric ulcers. It may not be safe for pregnant women and those with gallstones or bile duct obstructions.

    Turmeric might interact with some medications, especially blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications. Thus those taking these types of medicines should take caution in using turmeric.
