Turmeric root powder has been widely used as a culinary spice in many cuisines, and it's also used in teas. Many of its healing benefits have been attributed to curcumin, a group of antioxidant compounds found in the rhizome. Turmeric as a whole herb stays in the digestive tract longer than curcumin, releasing antioxidant curcumin along with other beneficial substances.
Too much turmeric used for extended periods of time may cause stomach distress. Women trying to conceive should limit their consumption and avoid entirely during pregnancy. Excessive use of turmeric should also be avoided in people with congestive heart failure.
