1. the correct dosage of curcuma
Curcuma is a very special plant. It not only has an anti-inflammatory effect, but also acts on many different areas of the human body. It is very important to find the right dosage of curcuma.
The WHO recommends a daily intake of about 200 micrograms of curcuma for an adult person. However, the recommended daily intake increases with various factors. The correct dosage of curcuma depends on sex, height and above all weight. It is also important to consider the living conditions. More curcuma may be needed for serious illnesses. However, the dosage should be discussed with the doctor.
2 What is curcuma?
Curcuma is a plant. It comes from the ginger family. Besides curcuma, it is also known as turmeric. The curcuma plant originally comes from India and Southeast Asia. There it was cultivated for food and healing purposes. In the 13th century the plant came to Europe. The curcuma plant can grow up to one meter high and bears pink and white flowers. Curcuma smells slightly of ginger, but does not have its pungency, but tastes mildly spicy and slightly bitter. Curcuma is an ingredient of curry powder. It is also called the "yellow ginger" or "Indian saffron". It has been used in Indian cooking for thousands of years. One should use it very sparingly when cooking, as it tastes bitter in larger quantities. Curcuma should preferably be stored in the dark and not for too long, as it quickly loses its colour and aroma in light.

It can be used for:
- Cancer diseases

4. curcuma as a food supplement
Curcuma is offered in the form of capsules and tablets. Naturally, curcuma is also sold as a powder. These forms are easy to handle and enter the circulation quickly. However, curcuma tablets are sold in pharmacies, which in many cases have been produced with artificial additives or abroad. Curcuma capsules often contain only the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can therefore be produced without fillers. In general, it should always be ensured that the product has been produced in Germany in order to guarantee a consistently high preparation quality.

5. conclusion: the right dosage of curcuma
Curcuma is a tropical mountain plant which belongs to the ginger family. For many thousands of years it has been well known for its healing properties in Asia. The ingredient curcumin has many antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
Curcuma is referred to by many as a remedy because it can help lower cholesterol levels. It helps to lose weight and can be taken very well for digestive problems. Since curcuma has a low bioavailability and therefore a lot of curcuma is lost in the intestines, one would have to consume large amounts of curcuma to benefit from the positive effects of curcuma. Therefore, it makes sense to consume curcuma in the form of food supplements. These are offered in the form of curcuma powder, curcuma tablets and curcuma capsules. The correct dosage of curcuma depends on various factors such as height, body weight and gender.
