How much turmeric can I take in a Day?
According to University of Maryland Medical Center
The permissible dosages of various forms of turmeric (for adults):
*Cut root: 1.5 – 3 g per day
*Dried, powdered root: 1 – 3 g per day
*Standardized powder (curcumin): 400 – 600 mg, 3 times per day
*Fluid extract (1:1) 30 – 90 drops a day
*Tincture (1:2): 15 – 30 drops, 4 times per day
Both fluid extracts and Tinctures are not commonly used, so I will concentrate on the rest of the three and what they mean:
*Cut root: This is basically fresh turmeric, it will have moisture too in it. Cut root is great to make pickles and adding to salads.
*Dried root: This is the most common way of using turmeric. This is how turmeric spice / powder is made – by drying cut root and then making a powder. Drying will cause loss of moisture and maybe of some beneficial aspects of turmeric, but no serious damage is done.
*Standardized powder (curcumin): This is basically what we call as supplements. Supplement manufacturers extract curcumin from turmeric and then concentrate it to make standardized powders. These are then sold as turmeric supplements in the market. Based on the brand the concentration may change.
Thus, in my opinion there are two kinds of turmeric dosages we can take:
*Preventive – which are low and which we can continue for lifetime
*Curative – required when we have some issues. For example, some of the studies mentioned high dosages to cancer patients and it makes all the sense to do so as we need quick action here.
So when you are suffering for say arthritis pain and you take large dosages, it acts like a strong painkiller and helps you. This can go on for some time and then one should get back to preventive dosage as soon as our body is back in shape.
