6 Amazing Turmeric Benefits:

  • Highly effective in managing Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Effective in managing Depression without dangerous side effects.
  • Potent Chronic Inflammation and Pain agent.
  • Acts as an anti-diabetic and antioxidant in diabetes
  • Turmeric is a powerful adversary to cancer.
  • Extremely healing for the brain and for increasing memory function.

It is interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism and thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry.

While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, Turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety compared to the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, and even chemotherapy agents.

Indeed, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential positive side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the body. Furthermore, nothing within the modern-day pharmaceutical storehouse comes even remotely close to turmeric’s 6,000 year track record of safe use in Ayurvedic medicine.

These 6 Amazing Turmeric Benefits are just the tip of the iceberg as over 600 potential health benefits of turmeric, and/or its primary polyphenol known as curcumin have been discovered.

You can take turmeric in many ways depending on what you want to treat. You can add turmeric to your food. Try it in soups or add to your rub next time you grill! It’s very versatile and delicious!

For healing and medicinal properties, it’s easiest to take in capsule form. If you want to enjoy the turmeric benefits of beauty enhancing and anti-aging qualities, add it into your face mask or buy a turmeric facial scrub.


Turmeric dosage mainly depends on age. For instance, adults are generally recommended 450 milligrams of curcumin capsules each day or up to 3 grams of turmeric root daily (divided into several doses). It can be taken as a tea with 1 to 1.5 grams of dried root steeped in 5 ounces of water for 15 minutes twice daily. or as an oil, ½ tablespoon of turmeric oil three times daily.

For children, it’s reported that there is “no proven or safe medicinal dose of turmeric in children.” With that said, “culinary doses” would be best used by regularly including it into your natural health meal plan as you would any other spice or herb. This way you can rest assured that your kids get their fair share of turmeric benefits every day.

Turmeric Side Effects

While the pros of turmeric health benefits usually outweigh the cons, it’s important to know that there can be some side effects with turmeric. Some people report allergic reactions to turmeric, especially after skin exposure. Typically, this is experienced as a mild, itchy rash. However, high doses of turmeric have been observed to cause:

  • Indigestion
  • Heart burn
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Liver problems
  • Increased risk of bleeding
  • Increased liver function tests
  • Hyperactive gallbladder contractions
  • Alopecia (hair loss)
  • Hypotension (lowered blood pressure)
  • Uterine contractions in pregnant women
  • Increased menstrual flow

People taking certain medications should also be careful when using turmeric in their food or supplementing with it. Turmeric may interfere with anti-coagulants like aspirin, clopidogrel and warfarin. It also can affect medications such as nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs.


Brew Turmeric tea:

Dr. Andrew Weil recommends this simple way to use turmeric – Just bring 1 cup of water to a boil and then stir in ¼ teaspoon of ground turmeric or fresh grated turmeric. Allow it to simmer for 10 minutes and strain before drinking. You can stir in honey or fresh lemon juice for added flavor.

Boost Immunity and Fight Viruses Like The Common Cold:

Mix 1 tablespoon of powdered turmeric with 7 tablespoons of raw honey and whenever you want to boost your immunity or are fighting a cold, dissolve a 1/2 teaspoon of this mixture in your mouth every couple hours.

As with any herb or supplement, it is essential that it is used as directed.
