Turmeric (curcuma longa) is a perennial herb and member of the ginger
family. It is found in Asia, India, China and other tropical countries. The
rhizome is the portion of the plant used for medicinal purposes once it is
boiled, cleaned and once dried it yields a yellow powder.
Curcumin flavonoid is the best researched active ingredient in turmeric
and has comparable antioxidant activity rivaling vitamins C and E. The
Chinese and Ayurvedic systems of medicine have used it for many
centuries mainly as an anti-inflammatory. It is also used for the treatment
of flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, prostate/bladder/kidney
problems, hemorrhage and colic. Curcumin protects the body at a
cellular level to prevent diseases like cancer and cirrhosis of the liver.
In addition to its use in cardiovascular and gastrointestinal disorders,
Curcumin also protects the body from invading bacteria. This prevents
colds, flues and other types of bacterial infections.
