Precautions & Tips
Not for Everyone 并非适用于所有人
Turmeric is indeed a wonderful drug, but it is not recommended for just anyone, and not for long term use. If one has an imbalance of Pitta dosha, he should never consume Turmeric, as he can experience bleeding disorders. Certain heart-related conditions are also worsened with the use of turmeric, and can result in blood clotting / blood thickening. Just because an herb is natural, it does not mean you can consume it haphazardly. Anything used inappropriately, even that which is natural and organic, can have a serious effect on a person.
For an adult, he can take 1-3g of turmeric powder each dose for twice or three times per day; whereas for a child, the dosage should be reduced to 0.5- 1.5g for twice or three times per day. The maximum daily dosage should not exceed 12g in total. The best time to take turmeric is at least 30 minutes before food or an hour after food.
Turmeric extract capsules or tablets are also available in the market. Generally, 250 to 500 mg tablets or capsules are available, which can be taken 1 to 2 tablets or capsules a dose for twice or three times a day depending on the health condition. However, the maximum total daily dosage of turmeric extract should not exceed 2g.
Large amounts of any individual herb are not recommended in Ayurveda. A moderate amount in combination with other herbs is the most effective approach whether in a churna or cooked in food. Overdose of turmeric can also lead to some health problems..
