Optim Curcuma is a food supplement that has demonstrated good tolerance up to 4g per day – the equivalent of 10 capsules per day. There are however a few precautions you might take. When initially ingested Optim Curcuma can cause digestive disturbances with some people, so for the first few days it is best taken with food. These symptoms generally abate after a few days and then it can be taken on an empty stomach. As relevant data on its use during pregnancy and lactation is lacking, Curcuma longa can not be recommended in these cases. Because curcumin was found to stimulate the gall bladder, the use of curcumin or turmeric is contraindicated in a person with obstruction of the biliary tract (WHO Monograph). Consult your doctor or pharmacist in case of concomitant use of anticoagulants. It is advisable to follow recommended doses, and have a diverse and balanced diet as well as healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children. Keep in a dry place.
