    I wouldn’t use it for IBS, it has been known to cause side effects, including upset stomachs and diarrhoea and dizziness. (People with IBS have enough problems as it is).  It may also cause problems with heart rhythm (which has been reported as such) and it may interfere with natural clotting process of blood (if you cut yourself or if you are going in for any surgery).

    I once thought about taking it and changed my mind once I’d researched it.

    Hey guest, I use Turmeric in its natural form not the capsule one...I use turmeric when I have cold and flu, Because it has good antibacterial and antioxident properties, As well as we can use it when we have cut or anything to use as antiseptic....I have not tried it for IBS....One thing helped me in my IBS to eat healthy and eat in small portions, I eat 7 times in a day including lunch and dinner....which helps my gut to digest whatever I eat properly.

    I've used tumeric capsules along with probiotics with the help of my nutritionist and I've had no problems. I had to quit though since I developed reflux symptoms and the medicines for that interact with tumeric.
