Turmeric Dosage for Humans – How much should I take?

There isn’t an exact dosage but start off with a 1/4 teaspoon 2/3 times a day to let your body adjust.  See how you feel and whether you are noticing any benefit.  Increase your dosage when you feel ready – just a little at a time and continue until you are feeling the benefits.  Your required dosage will depend on many factors ie the type of turmeric you are using, what you are taking it for, etc.

Turmeric does not stay in the body for more than 6 – 8 hours so little an often of small doses is more beneficial.

Turmeric is a natural food so you should not experience any negative effects but if you do have any reaction that makes you uncomfortable stop or reduce your dosage and seek some further advice.  If you are being treated for a chronic illness and are taking medication please consult with your doctor to enquire whether turmeric would be beneficial.
