Turmeric Side Effects
Last updated on November 21, 2009
The health benefits of turmeric are many, but what about turmeric side effects?
In general, turmeric is considered safe even at higher doses. However, turmeric does have some contraindications.
It should be used with caution by people with gallstones, stomach ulcers, or bile duct obstruction as turmeric may exacerbate these conditions.
Turmeric can be a uterine stimulant, so pregnant women should consult with a doctor before taking turmeric during pregnancy.
People with serious liver or heart conditions should also consult with a doctor before taking turmeric supplements.
