Does Golden Milk have side effects?

Turmeric and the curcurmin it contains are said to have a positive effect on the body. With a normal diet, no negative side effects are therefore to be expected from the consumption of golden milk. It is almost impossible to overdose. However, every body is different. We therefore recommend that particularly sensitive people start with small quantities. In the worst case, Golden Milk can cause nausea and flatulence if intolerant.
