Turmeric is arguably the most powerful spice on the planet to increase wellness. There are thousands of published studies proving the benefits of turmeric and one of its renowned healing compounds, curcumin.

The compounds in turmeric have been shown to have positive impacts on the following diseases and conditions:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis, due to the anti-inflammatory properties
  • Prevention of certain cancers and Alzheimer’s, due to the anti-oxidant qualities
  • Inflammatory gut conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s Disease, by reducing inflammation of the gut lining and supporting the re-establishment of helpful gut flora
  • Type II diabetes, by helping to regulate blood sugars
  • Natural pain relief (anti-inflammatory)
  • Circulatory system health, through reduction in oxidative stress on the blood vessels

We aren’t suggesting that you run out and ditch any medication you may be taking, but rather trying some turmeric in its natural form at low doses on a regular basis as this may assist in management of chronic conditions and improve your overall health.

One of the benefits of taking turmeric in its natural form is that the risk of side-effects and overdose is greatly reduced.

Ginger also has wonderful health benefits and helps with:

  • Nausea and digestion
  • Detoxifying the blood and liver
  • Reducing the risk of cancer

Jamu, combining the benefits of both turmeric and ginger, is packed with health giving compounds!

WARNING: Although turmeric is natural, people can still have reactions to it, particularly if taken in excessive amounts. For most adults we advise taking no more than 275ml of Jamu in a 24 hour period. Pregnant women and children should limit their intake to 50ml per day of Jamu or less.

High doses of turmeric have been observed to cause:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Increased risk of bleeding
  • Increased liver function tests
  • Hyperactive gallbladder contractions
  • Hypotension (lowered blood pressure)
  • Uterine contractions in pregnant women
  • Increase menstrual flow

People taking certain medications should also be careful when using turmeric in their food or supplementing with it. Turmeric may interfere with anti-coagulants like aspirin, clopidogrel and warfarin. It also can affect medications such as non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. As with any herb or supplement, use as directed.
