Turmeric is a spice made from the root of the curcuma longa plant, a perennial ginger family member. Curcumin is the main active component. “Turmeric’s yellowish color is due to curcumin.” “However, be aware that it stains readily.” “Avoid getting it on your clothes!” The advantages of curcumin are what make turmeric so valuable. Curcumin contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Researchers are looking at whether it can help with inflammatory conditions including arthritis and ulcerative colitis. Turmeric may be therapeutic for chronic illnesses where inflammation begins to harm body tissues. Patients with ulcerative colitis who took 2 grams of curcumin per day along with their prescribed medicine were more likely to remain in remission in one trial. Another scientific experiment found that taking 90 milligrams of curcumin twice a day for 18 months helped persons without dementia enhance their memory skills. “Researchers hypothesized that curcumin’s antioxidant effects and reduced brain inflammation led to less decrease in neurocognition, or the ability to think and reason”. “Curcumin may also play a role in reducing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, although more research is needed in this area.” Turmeric has long been used to treat arthritis in Chinese traditional medicine and Ayurveda. Turmeric extract appears to have the ability to alleviate pain associated with osteoarthritis, while more research is needed.
