The following information is for reference purposes only. Although there are many studies carried out throughout the world, the following are merely copies of the abstracts of each of the papers as found on PubMed.gov also known as the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health. If they are not listed on PubMed, I have given the link to the article or paper where I have found it. There are many references on the internet, which have been cut and pasted from other sites, but there is no actual online reference to the paper itself. As such I have not included these as they are not in my eyes relevant or of value to you the reader. Although there are several arguments as to the validity of several of the papers publishing the research, I have chosen to be neutral on this matter as I do not feel I have the authority to determine which paper has more kudos over another. I have in effect made my decision based on the total weight of papers, suggesting a general trend in health benefits.
Although this list is not exhaustive, it is certainly pretty all encompassing. As a practitioner of alternative medicine with a Masters degree in my chosen field from Portsmouth University and a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering from Sheffield University, I value evidence and LOTS of it for me to make a decision. I hope this helps you in making the same decision I did to invest time and effort and money in attempting to produce a safe non drug centred product that was initially for my and my family’s health benefits, but should help not just my many hundreds of clients but those of my colleagues and anyone that chooses to purchase our product directly from us.
There is some research available that suggests you should not use turmeric if you have gallstones or bile duct dysfunction. In rare cases, extended use in high doses, significantly above our recommened maximum level may cause stomach upset or heartburn. There is also a select few studies that demonstrate that piperine may slow the excretion of some prescription. Some evidence also suggests that curcumin may interfere with specific chemotherapy drugs used to treat breast cancer. If you are being treated for this disease, discuss taking curcumin with your general practitioner.
