YBundy R, Walker AF, Middleton RW, Booth J. "Turmeric extract may improve irritable bowel syndrome symptomology in otherwise healthy adults: a pilot study." Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine. 10(6):1015-8, 2004
This pilot study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of turmeric (Curcuma longa) extract on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in otherwise healthy adults. Two hundred and seven (207) people received either one or two tablets of a standardized turmeric extract daily for 8 weeks. Outcome measures included IBS prevalence, symptom-related quality of life and self-reported effectiveness. IBS prevalence decreased significantly in both groups between screening and baseline (41% and 57%), with a further significant drop of 53% and 60% between baseline and after treatment, in the one- and two-tablet groups respectively. Abdominal pain/discomfort scores were also reduced significantly by 22% and 25%. There were significant improvements in all except one of the quality of life scales of between 5% and 36% in both groups, approximately two thirds of all subjects reporting an improvement in symptoms after treatment, and there was a favorable shift in self-reported bowel pattern. Turmeric may help reduce IBS symptoms. Placebo controlled trials are now warranted to confirm these findings.
