Turmeric for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

The Arthritis Foundation advises taking turmeric supplements, i.e., capsules or gummies of 400-600 mg 3 times daily. One can take half to three grams of turmeric root powder daily. Many recommend making a paste using turmeric powder. Apply the paste to the RA-affected area, wrap it in plastic, and let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes.
