Turmeric is a spice that comes from a plant and it’s also known as Curcuma, Curcumin, Turmeric Root, etc.
Turmeric is commonly used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, and other foods. It is commonly used in Asian food.
Turmeric has gained popularity as both a flavorful spice and a health supplement that can be used for a wide variety of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, high cholesterol, heartburn, and even cancer.
Curcumin and other chemicals in turmeric might decrease swelling (inflammation).
Because of this, turmeric might be beneficial for treating conditions that involve inflammation.
Turmeric and curcumin are considered safe for most people.
There are few if any reports of people experiencing negative reactions to typical amounts of turmeric in food, and curcumin supplements are generally well tolerated.
But if you’re planning to take turmeric for its medicinal benefits, you should be aware that its main active ingredient curcumin has the potential to react negatively with certain medications.
Turmeric and curcumin can interact with certain medications. For example, turmeric is a blood thinner.
So if you are on other blood-thinning medications, you shouldn’t take turmeric or turmeric supplements because doing that could increase your risk of bleeding and bruising or even make the other medications less effective.
