  • Dr Berg please make a video on other indian herbs like ashwagandha, shatavari, bitter gourd and neem. Please sir, it will be quite useful

  • I’ve been taking off & on since 2002.
    I use to use an eighth of a teaspoon in place of aspirin for aches and pains. Since the pandemic I’ve been
    doing 1 table spoon a day sometimes more. I just buy the spice and I add black pepper with it.

  • I mix 250ml water with 1 tbs. acv, 1 tbs. lemon juice, half tsp. turmeric powder and a pinch of black pepper. It does give you a glowing, healthy looking skin. Unfortunately I haven’t noticed any weight loss.

  • Yes, drink the organic tea and I add ground organic in food. I noticed it made me feel good. Nothing really bothers me anymore

  • I came from east africa and we use tumric for everthing for cooking to tea and face mask make sure to buy organic

  • I’m diagnosed with distonia so please advice if I can use fresh turmeric. I used to drink turmeric daily. But recently I stopped. Thank you.

  • Be careful with turmeric. My pharmacist told me that people with hypothyroidism should not take it. That it interferes with the body’s ability to balance out thyroid hormones.

  • Hi my name is Johan from SA I have been taking a mix of Tumeric:1tsp honey 1tsp lemon 1tsp Tumeric n bit of black pepper for 2 months and I feel great I have a BPH problem and don’t have to visit the toilet frequently at night anymore since using this mix I am 72 years old and will continue with this mix tky

  • Curcumin is ONE of the ingredients, but turmeric works best. I use about 1400 mg. a day, for with 2800 mg. I would bleed too easily. I feel better and function better with it. In India where they eat a lot of curry, Alzheimer’s is not so common! If it’s brain food, I need it.

  • Thank you for your informative video. I did not hear any discussion on whether turmeric has any benefits to eye health and whether you are aware if turmeric can help reduce eye floaters. Thank you!

  • Good information here. Thanks for that. I note that you say nothing about buying turmeric root. Perhaps neither you or your viewers can buy it where you live, assuming in the US. I live in Bali Indonesia, and its amazingly cheap at my local supermarket. it’s called kunyit over here. I suffer a bit from gout occasionally (my third ever attack, right now), and I’m juicing veggies (celery, radishes, a small chunk of turmeric, similar chunk with ginger, garlic, 2 apples, 2 bell peppers, usually 1 red 1 yellow. It tastes quite bitter without the apples, and it chokes my slow-juicer. Turmeric can also stain your hands. Thanks for clarifying on the side-effects. I do this about twice a week. My skin is improving, but not my pocket book as celery is crazy expensive here. Gout (just on my right foot big toe) not gone yet after 4 weeks. Fingers crossed. Good luck with follow-up videos.

  • Yes, after boron, collagen, moringa, etc., turmeric actually helps my left hip and pain is slowly disappearing ( it’s either hip arthritis or bursitis, Doctors don’t know til they cut you). Will try a mix with bromalaine. Beats a new hip( I hope)

  • Everything I read about it, says the exact opposite of what this video says. No matter what source I use to read about it, they all say the exact opposite of what you’re saying. Why is that?

  • I love taking Tumeric supplements! I get a energy boost from it and I feel overall healthier. Plus it tastes GREAT in eggs!! Thank you for sharing this information. I’m learning to look into more holistic, natural ways to heal. I have always heard great things about tumeric. It’s on the top of my herbal list!

  • When I had hep c I began to drink turmeric tea with green tea and my immediate doctor’s appointment my liver was repairing itself…wow

  • Dr, i would like to know if turmeric and curcuma are the same, because you mention the two in this video, or are they differenti, please throw more light in it,thanks,

  • For my weight loss, I took
    Black pepper
    And pure honey as sweetener
    Results? AMAZING!!!
    105kg 85kg
    My goal is 70kg.

  • Take a tablespoon with a teaspoon of ginger and a pinch of pepper for absorption every day. Swallowed with warm water in a tea…..1 week in fingers crossed.

  • More than about turmeric, I love you as a couple in this video, you look amazing, full of love, adorable! Hope it is one of the turmeric benefits.

  • I take turmeric finely grated together with finely grated ginger, pepper, grated lemon mixed with manuka honey. I also include grated garlic….I put half teaspoon of mixture in any drink during the day

  • I don’t take it as a supplement nor do I use the powder. My family and friends from the islands grow it and I use the root or rhizome in my juices, organic milk, and my foods.

  • Question.I purcharsed organic tumeric powder, 1tbsp serving has 7 carbs… is this keto approved, I try to keep my carb count under 15net g, would these carbs affect my progress? I’m still going to consume it given its many benefits, I’m just curious about the carb count. ��

  • So informative Dr. Axe. I love your content. How may we infuse turmeric and ginger in a concoction that may taste awesome for everyone sake. This is my humble and sincerest question.

  • I’ve been taking tumeric in pill form from Amazon for about two months and my psoriasis that has been on my hands for about five years has resolved. I’ve also been taking garcinia cambogia as a weight loss aid. It’s supposed to block carbohydrate absorption. I’ve also been trying to do keto and intermittent fasting. I’m 66 and tired of being over weight. I haven’t felt this well in years.

  • There’s a company called YELLOWHALDI .COM Their turmeric is very potent because of rigorous criteria. They don’t market their products. They are very underrated. My mother and I have felt so great ever since using them.

  • I take turmeric every morning on an empty stomach. I mix it with fresh lemon juice,honey,put in some black pepper,top it up slightly
    with warm water, this makes a half of a tumbler glass.been taking it for some time. not sure if I feel any different to when I didn’t
    take it,but I’m sure it’s beneficial.brian,uk.

  • I think i am taking it too much like today i had diarrhea and went to toilet twice but other than that it makes me feel great really ��

  • My wife and I take Turmeric everyday. We take it naturally, we don’t take supplements. We get it right now from an Indian shop and in the near future, we will be making it ourselves by grinding the roots. A little testimony, my wife had cataract surgery and she developed a bad infection. The optometrist told her the only way to get rid of the infection is to receive at least six shots in the eye over a six week period. My wife refused and we got on a strict turmeric and pepper regimen. After two months of this, she could see out of her eye and we went back to the doctor and had another scan done and the infection was completely gone. The optometrist was amazed, he said that he never seen anybody recover without the antibiotic shots. My wife told him what she was doing and he said that he is going to start recommending it to his patients. As I stated earlier, we take it all natural. No additives, just completely fresh. It’s safer and you know what you are taking. The best supplement ever.

  • You guys are fantastic. I am 69 years old, have been taking turmeric for almost a year and have noticed better health all around, the biggest benefit I found is my memory improvement. I am still in sales and after taking turmeric for several months I was amazed how easily I remember my customer’s names and details of the sales I make. Most people pronounce turmeric starting with the sound of “turm”you guys might try that, it is easier than starting with the word “too”.Check out the talking dictionary on your iPad and you will hear the most common way to pronounce this wonderful herb.
    Thanks again.

  • I just started using turmeric tea last week for hopeful relief in arthritis and to aid in weight loss. My tea recipe:
    1/2 tsp turmeric powder
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 tbsp ACV (organic)
    1/2 tsp grated ginger
    1 green tea bag
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt

    I steap all ingredients for 10 minutes and drink twice daily. 1st thing in the a.m. and just before bed. Along with a low carb diet and intermittent fasting. Wish me luck ��������
    Loved your video and all the beneficial information…Thanks to you both!!! ��

And of course turmeric is amazing when consuming it. I drink it with honey, maple syrup, ginger, a little bit of coconut sugar and cardamom. It’s also delicious with cinnamon!

  • Another great and tasty way to get turmeric into your daily diet for all you COFFEE LOVERS. Take a cup of black coffee, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of tumeric and blend it together and serve. Its actually really good and has been a really healthy and tasty substitute to cream and sugar.

    If you want to take it even further, add a small pinch of Piperine to it. It will make the Tumeric 20× more absorbent, just know that it will add a kick of spice to your coffee, and you really dont need much to notice the difference lol

  • interestingly….the effects can be felt rather quickly upon consumption….also leaves your body rather quick too so most divide up 3 times a day regimen, esp for bed.

    It must be consumed with black pepper, and a healthy fat, or there’s no point at all. I do this:
    Cut a ripe avocado in 4 pieces. Line them up, next to each other, and put a teaspoon of turmeric into each cutout left by the seed. Then, shake a 1/4 of a teaspoon of black pepper on top of each slice, and, voila, a great side for your breakfast.

  • I thought that the latest meta analyses of the scientific evidence shows that curcumin has little or no effect. In particular, curcumin isn’t absorbed into the bloodstream. Therefore, I stopped taking it. Very confusing.

  • Hey Dr. Berg, there’s a lot been going around about Curcumin instead of Turmeric. I would really like to know your take on that. Thanks!

  • What brand do u recommend? The capsules say they are made of some kind of rice stuff and the vegan ones are made out of some wood byproduct cellulose. Can u just buy the turmeric from the spice section and add some pepper? I’d like to take this but its confusing lol

  • I tried golden tea (look it up ) and it tastes amazing! I would also like to add that turmeric prevents cancer, well at least that’s what i heard.

  • I mix it up with Ginger, cinnamon and Cardamon. I prefer it cold mixed with Coconut milk. I haven’t yet felt any benefits. I maintain a healthy weight and at 75 YO I take no medications. I just like the taste and hope it does something positive.
    After morning Cardi workout I enjoy a third of a cup with the Coconut milk. for a sweetener I use Stevia.

  • This was very educative. Thank you. Meanwhile what about the assimilation? Do you need to take the tumeric with…let’s say…olive oil or anything else in order to absorb it completely without peeing 50% of it..

  • Whoa. Eric. You forgot the effect Circumin has on fatty liver. 80 percent fat reduction of fatty liver over several week, one main study found.

  • Hi i just started 2 days ago drinking boiled water cold with honey yesterday with lemon thanks for your videos. 4got to mention i suffering constipation ��

  • Great info, but how is it that a dietician doesn’t realize that is is tURmeric; NOT tOOmeric? No wonder people pronounce it wrong so often when even the professionals don’t say it correctly.

  • Stage 4 advanced cancer survivor 72. Tumeric does work as stated. Also take CoQ10 lig. and PQQ 10 mg daily. Can stop aging but? you can stop the effects of age. Loss of focus, weight gain, slowing in general. Now I weight 170 5’11 perfect charts. Energy of a teen.
