Giardia lamblia

Table V.5: Giardia lamblia

G. lamblia is a tiny parasite found worldwide. It causes giardiasis, a gastrointestinal infection. (v.62)

People get infected with it by drinking contaminated water or eating uncooked contaminated food. You can also catch it by touching a tainted surface and then contaminating what you eat or drink. (v.62)

Giardiasis can last 2-6 weeks. Symptoms can take up to 3 weeks to show. They can include: (v.1862)

However, some people infected with G. lamblia show no symptoms. (v.62)


Studies suggest turmeric's main curcumin compounds could protect against infection by G. lamblia. They slow the parasite’s growth and ability to stick to cells. (v.6)

Curcumin also limits the parasite's toxic activity in the body. This could help relieve symptoms in infected people. (v.6)

Research (mostly lab studies) show that other individual compounds in turmeric also show benefit against G. lamblia. These include:

Also known as Beaver Fever, Montezuma's Revenge, and Tourist Trots. (v.1862)
