Health-wise, turmeric tea is among the top choices. The anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants found in turmeric make it a healthy food choice. It's worth noting, though, that turmeric may have unintended consequences for certain people.
According to a story in Medical News Today, there are certain groups of people who shouldn't consume turmeric tea on a regular basis, and we'll take a look at those groups here. Don't worry about anything but reading this essay and enjoying the process of gaining knowledge.
Why shouldn't certain people consume turmeric tea on a regular basis?
One group of people who may benefit from consuming turmeric tea or turmeric in general during pregnancy is pregnant women, since research has shown that doing so may increase the likelihood of a woman experiencing contractions and, in turn, giving birth before her due date. This is because it contains compounds that can cause premature delivery or even miscarriage by thinning the blood.
Those who are using blood-thinning medications, such as warfarin, should avoid it. The reason for this is that it may cause their blood to become even more dilute, resulting in uncontrollable bleeding. If you are on blood-thinning medication, it's probably best to steer clear of turmeric altogether.
