Our Members Asked:
Do turmeric and curcumin supplements contain significant amounts of oxalates? Can this increase my risk of kidney stones?
Yes, turmeric can contain a significant amount of oxalate, which can form calcium oxalate kidney stones (the most common type of kidney stone). However, some curcumin products (which are extracts of turmeric) contain little to no oxalate. Find out which curcumin products are low in oxalate and get more details in the Concerns and Cautions section of Turmeric/Curcumin Supplements Review.
