Tumeric is a powerful anti-oxidant.  I'm hearing good things about using it for reducing inflammation; however, you definitely want to talk to your doctor about whether there might be a possible interaction.  In fact, it's important to let the doctor know about any supplements, herbs, or spices that you are taking in more than typical food-size doses.
