Notes for this study:
Turmeric at 500mg (ingested via curry, compared to a control having curry without turmeric) was able to increase bowel motility and increase the AUC for breath hydrogen between 30 and 300 minutes, hypothesized to be indicative of more intestinal carbohydrate metabolism and bacterial growth in the colon.
