Turmeric is an herb that is cultivated widely in South and Southeast Asia for its commercial value. Turmeric is derived from the root of the plant, which has been used in the Ayurvedic tradition for centuries for its many healthful properties. Curcumin, the active constituent of Turmeric, (Curcuma longa L.) is the pigment that gives this herb its characteristic yellow color.
Curcumin has more recently been recognized by the modern scientific community because of its impact on human health and consequently has been the subject of many laboratory studies. A large body of research has suggested that Curcumin possesses potent antioxidant activity, as well as the ability to help the body maintain balanced inflammatory responses.
Through these and other mechanisms, Curcumin supports colon health, exerts neuroprotective activity, and helps to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Health Functions:
