  • Turmeric and curcumin seem to be generally well tolerated. The most common side effects observed in clinical studies are gastrointestinal and include constipation, dyspepsia, diarrhoea, distension, gastroesophageal reflux, nausea, vomiting, yellow stool and stomach ache.
  • Due to their ability to increase bile secretion, turmeric and curcumin should not be taken by individuals with obstruction of the bile duct, cholangitis, liver disease, gallstones and any other biliary disease.
  • Turmeric has also been linked to interactions with some conventional medicines due to its influence on some cytochrome P450 enzymes, P-glycoprotein and OATP transporters.
  • Patient’s taking medicines with a narrow therapeutic index or, associated with significant side effects, e.g. anticancer or immunosuppressant agents should use turmeric and curcumin with caution.

  • "Approximately 5 percent of the spice turmeric is composed of an active compound called curcumin, which is responsible for turmeric’s bright yellow color."
  • "About 5 percent of black pepper by weight is comprised of piperine, a compound that gives the spice its pungent flavor. Piperine is a potent inhibitor of drug metabolism. One of the ways our liver gets rid of foreign substances is by making them water soluble so they can be more easily excreted. But, this black pepper molecule inhibits that process."
  • "And guess what a common ingredient in curry powder is besides turmeric? Black pepper."
