Curcumin is one of the primary bioactive substances found in turmeric roots and is responsible for turmeric’s vivid yellow colour. Turmeric has been used as a cooking spice as well as in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for many centuries for a number of health benefits. Curcumin is a type of phytochemical and is one of a group of polyphenol substances known as curcuminoids. Its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are likely responsible for turmeric’s many therapeutic benefits.
Curcumin comes from the roots of turmeric or the Curcuma longa plant, which is a member of the ginger family.
Curcumin is extracted from the dried and ground turmeric root. This creates a very concentrated and bright yellow coloured powder.
