Turmeric as Effective for Acid Reflux as Pharmacy Drugs

​​A clinical trial has shown that turmeric, known for its bright yellow staining properties, can effectively reduce acid reflux, similar to common medications. The study, conducted between 2019 and 2021, focused on curcumin, turmeric’s active compound, and its impact on recurrent upset stomach (functional dyspepsia). The research compared curcumin to the proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) omeprazole, a popular GERD treatment. Both curcumin and omeprazole showed comparable results in relieving symptoms, with curcumin slightly outperforming in non-pain symptoms after 56 days. Turmeric has a long history of use in traditional medicine and may have potential clinical applications, although further safety and efficacy research is necessary.
