Turmeric’s botanical name is Curcuma longa and produces both a flower and a stem that is found underground. The underground stem has an appearance similar to ginger; it is this root-like stem that produces the yellow turmeric spice.
Turmeric has a golden orange color and is a strongly flavored spice that has been around for centuries, but has found a new health resurgence of late. Curcumin – considered one of the most beneficial compounds from turmeric (Curcuma longa) dates back about 5,000 years. It was a principal healing agent in Ayurveda, and traditional Indian system of medicine, and recognized as a valuable ingredient long before it became popular as a supplement.
This spice has been known for centuries as both food and medicine. The healthy or what is called the active ingredient is Curcumin, which gives turmeric its distinctive color has significant anti-inflammatory properties that are said to rival those found in ibuprofen. Unlike most over the counter drugs today, turmeric has no toxic effects on the body. Curcumin’s powerful antioxidant advantages have been shown to protect healthy cells from free radical damage, particularly those found in the colon. This amazing spice aids the body in destroying mutated cancer cells before they have a chance to spread to other areas. Turmeric has also been found to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. The best part it is a pretty tasty spice, have you ever heard of curry, well one of its main ingredients is turmeric!

- Fighting arthritis
- Alzheimer’s disease

What some of the studies say:
A study published in Alternative Medicine Review (2011) shows that Meriva, an Indena proprietary formulation of curcumin with soy phospholipids, has been shown to relieve pain and increase mobility in patients with osteoarthritis as well as reduce a series of inflammatory markers.
Commenting on the results of the study, Giovanni Appendino, Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Eastern Piedmont and Indena Scientific Advisor, said “this study represents the most ambitious attempt, to date, to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of curcumin as an anti-inflammatory agent. Although no direct comparison study of Meriva versus NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) has been conducted, the decreased use of these drugs observed in the treatment group provides a rationale for evaluating whether the biochemical improvement in the inflammatory status associated with Meriva could eventually translate to a phase out of NSAIDs use
A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.
A 2013 international laboratory study looked at the effects of a combined treatment with curcumin and chemotherapy on bowel cancer cells. The researchers concluded that the combined treatment might be better than chemotherapy alone.
A 2007 American study in mice seemed to show that curcumin helped to stop the spread of breast cancer cells to other parts of the body.
