Turmeric and Curcumin

tumericAlso referred to as “Indian saffron” or “Indian solid gold,” turmeric is derived from the rhizome of the plant Curcuma longa and is immediately associated with colorful Indian and Asian curries.

Historically, the use of turmeric – which belongs to the same plant family as ginger – dates back 4,000-5,000 years to India and Indonesia. The plant is also mentioned in the writings of Marco Polo during his 1280 journey to China and India. Finally, it was during the British rule of India that turmeric was combined with other spices and labeled as “curry powder” that is so familiar with us today.

Curcumin Is a Major Component of Turmeric

Turmeric contains a wide number of phytochemicals, but the primary component that’s attracted worldwide scientific inquiry is curcumin. Curcumin is the polyphenolic pigment contributing to turmeric’s yellow color and believed to be responsible for most of this spice’s health and wellness benefits. On average, curcumin comprises 2-5 percent of turmeric.

Health Benefits of Curcumin

Curcumin’s influence on molecular pathways are numerous and complex. It’s not surprising that the pigment could potentially have several health-related benefits, including:

  • Support as an antioxidant
  • Support against oxidative stress
  • Support for heart health
  • Support for exercise recovery
  • Support for brain health
