Myth: As Turmeric Is Natural  You Can Take It In Any Amount Without Any Harm!

Myth: As Turmeric is natural You can take it in any amount without any harm!

In this pandemic there is trend of taking turmeric without

any measurement, thinking that it is natural. So, it is safe &

will protect you from virus, without any side effect.


Turmeric in India is used since ancient time and

it has many health benefits. It is safe if you

take it in small doses. But, taking too much for

long period of time will cause serious health problem like:

  • Unusual bleeding
  • Nausea
  • Stomach upset
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Headache

If you are on any medication like-diabetes medicine,

blood thinner, or antidepressant, then taking too much of turmeric for

long period of time can interact with these drugs.

So, you should not take too much of turmeric powder for long period of time.

Now, an important question: – How much amount of Turmeric is safe?

There is very less data available on safe dosage of turmeric powder. But

taking up to 10—20 gm per day for few weeks will not harm you.

Turmeric supplement will be more harmful as they contain high

concentration of curcumin. If you want to take

high dose or its supplement then please take

under the guidance of a qualified health expert.

Always remember- Moderation is the key.
