Can you tell me about Curcumin?

Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants scavenge molecules in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Antioxidants can fight free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. In addition, curcumin lowers the levels of two enzymes in the body that cause inflammation. It also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots. For further explanation, you can read our article, “Curcumin Benefits”, to find out more about the uses of this antioxidant.


Turmeric vs. Curcumin?

Turmeric is derived from the root of the plant Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family. The roots, or rhizomes and bulbs, are used in medicine and food.

What's a Turmeric plant?

A relative of ginger, turmeric is a perennial plant that grows 5 to 6 feet high in the tropical regions of Southern Asia, with trumpet-shaped, dull yellow flowers. Its roots are bulbs that also produce rhizomes, which then produce stems and roots for new plants. Turmeric is fragrant and has a bitter, somewhat sharp taste. Although it grows in many tropical locations, the majority of turmeric is grown in India, where it is used as a main ingredient in curry.
