11. Turmeric Isn't for Everyone

Though most people can eat foods with turmeric without experiencing any issues, some might find they face a few side effects after increasing this healthful ingredient in their diets. Constipation, diarrhea, and stomach aches are some of the more common, minor symptoms.

Additionally, because turmeric can increase bile secretion — a property that provides some of its benefits — people with an obstructed bile duct, liver disease, gallstones, or another biliary condition should avoid amping up their turmeric intake. Anyone taking prescription medication should speak to their doctor before beginning to take or significantly increasing this spice, as well.
