I took curcumin in the fall and ended up having to get on zantac for excess stomach acid. I have made some dietary changes - no more potatoes and tomatoes (and I love potatoes damnit!) and the stomach acid things seems better. I would like to start taking curcumin again as I felt it helped with inflammation (which I have way too much of) yet even one tablet a day for two days is harkening back to the excess acid symptoms.
Anybody have any suggestions on how to reduce stomach acid or minimize the effects of curcumin on stomach acid - take with certain foods, time of day, etc.? I have been taking it with a large protein shake - dairy and fruit - at breakfast.
Any other foods I should be avoiding?
