Yes, It seems curcumin is quite the drug to be taking. I took too much of it for my MS. which may have been part of my UC problem. Before I was diagnosed, I was taking about 50,000 mg of turmeric, 60,000 mg of ginger amd a plethora other immunomodulatory supplements and antioxidants. That's what I was intersted in: Antioxidants and immune modulators, I swear they helped my MS, but were not good for my colon. I am now taking 1 ginger pill a day, alpha lipoic acd once/day, and turmeric 500 mg/day.With these low dose I have had to effects.
