GLOSSARY
TURMERIC (CURCUMA LONGA)

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

 

How does it work?

Turmeric is a western and traditional ayurvedic herbal medicine used for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, choleretic, hypolipidaemic, antiplatelet, antimicrobial and carminitive actions.1 This is due to containing curcuminoid compounds including curcumin which has been mostly used in studies.2 Turmeric has shown to have significant antioxidant action through providing direct free radical scavenging activity, and induce phase II detoxifying enzymes in the liver.3 Turmeric exerts its anti-inflammatory effects through inhibiting the arachadonic acid pro-inflammatory cascade, therefore showing positive results for chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, colitis, allergies, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, respiratory disorders, eye diseases, intestinal disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and various cancers.4 Curcumin has also shown to stimulate the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids, and decrease serum lipid peroxides which may assist in reducing cholesterol and lipid profiles in those with high cholesterol and/or triglycerides.5

What results can be expected?

Turmeric assists in reducing inflammation in many conditions that have a chronic inflammatory process such as arthritis, intestinal disorders and arteriosclerosis.6 Due to its choleretic and hypolipidaemic activity, it may assist in reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levles as well as improving liver function and detoxification.7
