Can turmeric or curcumin with black pepper extract cause constipation? I had this problem, but it resolved when I switched to a curcumin supplement without piperine (black pepper extract).
I have IBS and don't want to take medication if I can help it. I've heard that peppermint works for IBS, but is there good research to support this?
I take omeprazole (Prilosec), a proton pump inhibitor, to reduce stomach acid. Are there supplements I should avoid, or be taking, due to this drug?
I read that famotidine (Pepcid) may help treat COVID-19. Is this true? Are there risks with taking famotidine?
