1 Possible side effects of Curcuma
There are no side effects associated with taking curcuma. However, side effects may occur if excessive amounts of curcuma are taken. Possible side effects of curcuma may include bloating, nausea, and vomiting at high doses. However, this only applies to amounts above 2000 mg curcuma per day. For this reason, there is no need to worry about possible side effects of curcuma. However, it should be noted that there may be an interaction with taking aspirin. If you take curcuma and aspirin together, you may experience heavier bleeding, for example during your monthly menstrual period or nosebleeds.
2 What is curcuma?
Curcuma is a tropical mountain plant. Besides curcuma, it is also known as turmeric and belongs to the ginger family. Its taste is somewhat similar to that of ginger, but it tastes rather mildly spicy and slightly bitter. The curcuma plant is found in Southeast Asia and India and grows to about one meter high. Curcuma contains the plant substance curcumin. This plant substance gives the plant its yellow-orange colour. Curcumin has an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. Curcuma is used as a spice and as a food supplement in the form of curcuma capsules.
