Organic Turmeric Curcumin Capsules

How many capsules to take per day?

The suggested serving size is between 1-3 capsules per day. The majority of people find the full serving of 3 capsules daily to be the most effective dose. This dosage is in line with the University of Maryland Medical Research Centres recommendation of 1000mg- 3000mg per day.

Start with a low dose:

If you have not supplemented turmeric before we recommend starting on a low dose to allow your body time to get used to turmeric.

Starting with 1-2 capsules per day for the first 3 – 7 days will allow your body time to get used to turmeric before progressing to the full dose of 3 capsules. This is especially important if you have sensitive digestion.

Although uncommon, taking too much turmeric too soon can result in loose stools. This is easily resolved by stopping or reducing your dose for 1-2 days and then slowly increasing.

How to take your capsules?

The active compounds within turmeric are fat-soluble so it is very important that you take your capsules with food, ideally a full meal.

When to take your capsules?

The active compounds within turmeric stay in your system for approximately 6-8 hours so its best to split your dose into two servings throughout the day. Breakfast and dinner work great but any meal is fine.

You can take the capsules at the beginning, during or end of a meal.

People with sensitive or slow digestion may find taking capsules at the end of a meal can cause mild reflux symptoms so it is advised to take them at the start of a meal if this occurs.

Is turmeric safe to be taken long term?

Turmeric is a natural food and has been safely consumed throughout Asia for over 4000 years both as a food and medicinal herb.

It is common for people in India and Sri Lanka to consume meals with turmeric in for their breakfast, lunch and dinner and no known side effects have been reported.

We believe that variety is beneficial for the body so taking a few days break from time to time can be beneficial.

Safety guidelines

Anyone scheduled for surgery should avoid turmeric supplements for 2 weeks before as it can have mild natural anticoagulant properties.

Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18 and individuals with a known medical condition or taking medication should consult with their GP before using nutritional supplements. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.

Turmeric is known for its cardiovascular health benefits. It can have a mild natural anticoagulant effect and also helps to naturally lower blood sugar levels. This is a benefit for most people but if taking medication that has a similar action eg. warfarin, aspirin, metformin then there is a risk your levels may become too low and turmeric is not recommended. Always check with your GP as they can make the best call on possible interactions knowing your full medical history.

Can I give turmeric to my pet?

Yes, turmeric is as beneficial for animals as it is for humans and many of our customers give turmeric for their ageing pets.

For dogs it is best to start with 1 capsule hidden in their food and assess how they respond.
