A 17-year-old male asked:

Does turmeric supplements or capsules help against gynecomastia? any side effects and please tell the dosage plan and for how much time?

No: I know of no evidence that turmeric will treat gynecomastia.
Dr. Alex Lechtman

No: Tumeric is not a treatment. Weight loss, stopping any contributors to it (marijuana, bulking steroids, certain meds and yes some supplements) and then surgery (either direct excision or liposuction) are effective.
