Can I Take Turmeric Everyday?

Can I Take Turmeric Everyday?

Turmeric is a herb which has 4000 years of history and has survived the test of time. From Hawaii to China to India, it has found its place in every culture.

People around the world consume it in a variety of ways. In the Market Analysis Report by Grand View Research, the turmeric market was valued at $58.4 million in 2019 alone and is expected to grow multiple folds by the year 2027.

This spurt of growth is the outcome of its rewarding health benefits and its image as an alternative medicine. 

Let us examine what makes it a pro-healthy herb and even more, critically answer the question of optimal turmeric dosage.

The Curcumin Effect 

Turmeric has many chemical compounds called curcuminoids but one that stands out is curcumin. Multiple studies have found that turmeric curcumin has the potential to treat and manage severe conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

You can assess how precious of a compound it is by analyzing this finding:

There are over 17,090 peer-reviewed scientific articles on curcumin in PubMD alone. This quest continues and will keep growing for many years to come.

The Chemical Structure of Our Beloved Curcumin

Surprisingly, curcumin is present scarcely in turmeric. It contains on average only 3.4% curcumin by weight. It is not enough to fight serious physical illnesses such as arthritis. Another concern with curcumin is its low capacity to get absorbed by the body, also known as low bioavailability. 

To tackle this scarcity and low bioavailability, many products are made with extracts of turmeric which are highly potent and contain 95% curcuminoids along with black pepper. Black pepper has a chemical compound called Bioperine which increases turmeric’s absorbing capacity. These two characteristics set turmeric curcumin products apart from low-quality ones.



Ozia’s turmeric candy takes this a step further! Just two of these turmeric candies are 24x MORE bioavailable than standard turmeric products (that use 95% curcuminoids) and 22x MORE bioavailable than standard turmeric products WITH black pepper. This is possible because Ozia uses Turmipure Gold® which is demonstrated to have the highest bioavailability at low doses – thus, the amount actually absorbed into the body is far superior than most products and well tolerated by adults.

Now that we have established the curcumin effect and the fact that we can consume it everyday, let us hop on our critical question- what is the optimal dosage of turmeric that you can take?

The Recommended Curcumin Dosage 

The turmeric curcumin consumption is dependent on many factors, especially your needs. Based on your needs, you may have to choose a product which contains anywhere between 300-6000 mg of curcumin. Let us look at specific physical health issues and the recommended dosage based on studies.

For everyday usage, studies have revealed that the most effective dose is somewhere between 500-1000 mg per day in concentrate form.

For everyday use, Ozia turmeric candies are here for you!

Fun fact: Indians consume around 60-100 mg of turmeric curcumin per day in their regular diet. 

What if you have ulcers? For protective effects against ulcers, 3000-6000mg/day should help though there’s not much evidence for this claim.

Suggested intake for osteoarthritis & rheumatoid arthritis is 500 mg of turmeric curcumin twice a day for 2-3 months.

So what are the final takeaways?


You Can Take Turmeric Everyday But…

Yes, there’s a but, there’s always a but. You now know how much turmeric is acceptable per day for optimal health benefits. What is equally relevant is to also know it’s possible side effects such as:

  • Turmeric has a high oxalate concentration which can cause kidney stones. Anyone with a history of stones should avoid it or consult their doctor for the same. 
  • According to a Medical News Today newsletter, too much turmeric is not suitable for people using blood-thinning medications and can cause low levels of glucose or hypoglycemia. 
  • If you’re pregnant {congratulations btw :)} then make sure to first and foremost talk to your physician without a doubt.
  • Some people just can’t digest the turmeric curcumin supplements and that may cause nausea, vomiting, and stomach discomfort. 

We understand that this all might sound scary but {here it is again :/ } 

Don’t Be Scared & Ask yourself relevant questions

Is the manufacturer following strict FDA guidelines?

Is the product manufactured in a GMP facility?

What is my need to consume turmeric in the first place?
