Hi so someone around here said that Turmeric can cause side effects as as it inhibits 5α-reductase like saw palmetto, etc ?!


I`m really panicky and I want to be sure it's just rumors, but if it inhibits 5a, could it cause sex sides ? what is your opinion ?

Because they say it's the modern viagra so how could that be

I do not think that it is real reason for panic. Curcumin really a 5α-Reductase Inhibitor, and it looks like it even could be used in treatment of prostatic hyperplasia (like saw palmetto and finasteride). In this study it was demonstrated on rats that it really works https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4618860/
I do not know any one who have this kind of side effects, but my opinion, that it is not a good idea to take it for prolonged period (4-6 months and more).

We all know that finasteride can destroy sexual apparatus, saw palmetto can do similar things as it was reported by many people, does that mean that curcumin can cause erection problems in some conditions too !?

Can anyone find any account of curcumin giving sex sides ?

Please post them here so we can find out the truth

These are from one of the biggest sites for turmeric, and as you read there is nothing only good, I have been on for around 8 years most days and have no problems.

One thing with turmeric its a blood thinner so watch if your taking aspirin or any other kind of blood thinner, and not forgetting that ginger is one and Ginko Biloba another.

Yeah, I know that. However I am concerned about it's 5a inhibiting effects . Is it really that safe ? cause saw palmetto is natural, does that too and you can get nasty sides from it

Natural; I love when I hear that word. It's good for you because it's natural. So's arsenic and a hungry bear. Tumeric is very good for you

Anything done in excess, or not following recommended dosage, could very well produce 'sides'.

Research, read up, use the internet.

Saw Palmetto does cause sides even in recommended dosage, so your argument is kinda invalid

O Dear ever heard of google? use it your find all you want, why pick our brains.

Everything is safe if its used within its boundaries, I take it most days and have for about 8 years.

See Dangler we are all invalid, as we don't really need to be here he thinks, but without us he would be invalid.
