This sounds like you are sensitive to turmeric and it does not agree with you and you should stop the product immediately.
C3 Cura™  is a form of curcumin that has been enhanced with a propriety platform technology, making it highly bioavailable and absorbable for the body. The technology enables Curcumin to be very well absorbed compared to other Curucmin products on the market. Secondly, in many published studies, scientists worldwide have documented that curcumin can beneficially affect many conditions. Furthermore, placebo-controlled double-blinded randomized clinical trials have showed benefits of taking curcumin for: (1) the reduction of anxiety during depression and occupational stress (Lopresti & Drummond, 2017; Pandaran et al., 2016; Yu et al., 2015); (2) the improvement of fat metabolism in overweight/obese individuals with metabolic syndrome (Rahmani et al., 2016; Yang et al., 2014); (3) antioxidant effects following radiation therapy (Hejazi et al., 2016), osteoarthritis (Nakagawa et al., 2014; Panahi et al., 2016), and metabolic syndrome (Panahi et al., 2015); (4) reduction of inflammation in osteoarthritis (Rahimnia et al., 2015) and cancer (Panahi et al., 2014); (5) mediating remission of ulcerative colitis (Lang et al., 2015; Singla et al., 2014); (6) improves atherogenic blood markers in type II diabetes (Chuengsamarn et al., 2014); (7) reduces symptoms in women suffering from PMS (Fanaei et al., 2016; Khayat et al., 2015); and (8) augments the quality of life in cancer patients (Panahi et al., 2014).
Curcumin is quickly being recognized as a powerful phytonutrient for health, typical commercial curcumin products are limited in their absorption. Overall, some of the dietary supplement companies have tried to reap the benefits of curcumin and incorporate this compound into their products without much success. Curcumin is a fat-soluble (highly insoluble) molecule that is rapidly metabolized by our body (liver and intestine), which severely limits its therapeutic use.

In its extracted form, typically less than 15% of curcumin gets absorbed by the human body. The rest either breaks down in the presence of enzymes in the liver and the intestine or gets rejected as waste. The difficulty in delivering curcumin limits its use, as it is very insoluble in water and is not well-absorbed by the human body. Thus, for therapeutic use, curcumin has to be administered in high doses. Even conventional emulsions and micro-emulsions are approximately 3,000 nm in particle size, which are not able to greatly enhance absorption or cellular penetration. Moreover, these formulations have limited stability and shelf life.

Yellow Root Curcumin is more bioavailable compared to the competition, but it also means that you do not need to take a mega dose of the active ingredient to get the same level of benefit. This is a superior way to take your curcumin. In addition to the added health benefits, Yellow Root Curcumin is also more cost effective for you.
Curcumin has been used in hundreds of clinical trials in humans, so it has a significant history. Refer to the following studies :

Curcumin (i.e., turmeric extract) dietary supplements contain more bioactive substances compared to turmeric dietary supplements at equal weight. For example, 100 mg of turmeric contains approximately 3 mg of curcuminoids. Alternatively, you would have to ingest 33 servings of turmeric (3.3 grams) to achieve an intake of 100 mg of curcuminoids. When assessing a product, first determine whether the product is comprised of turmeric or curcumin (i.e., turmeric extract). Then look for the amount of product per unit (e.g., one tablet, capsule, or drop) or serving. In the case of turmeric (powder), multiply the amount per unit or serving by 0.03 to arrive at the total curcuminoid content.
