What is Curcumin?
Curcuminoids are a group of active substances in turmeric root. Curcuminoids belong to the group of polyphenolic dyes which include, among others, the substance curcumin. Curcumin is the primary curcuminoid in turmeric root and is the most significant active plant substance and therefore the most scientifically studied.
Curcumin with its characteristic orange color also belongs to the group of polyphenolic substances. In nature, these substances are formed by plants and microorganisms. A herb may produce these substances in order to protect it from attack such as pests, UV radiation and wounding.
Curcumin also contains herbal substances such as saponins, phytosterols, alkaloids, tannins and starches. At the same time, some of these herbs are considered an important part of a healthy and varied diet.
Turmeric is probably best known as an essential ingredient in curry powder where it contributes to the curry's yellowish color.
The Turmeric plant originated in India and South Asia. The plant is related to Ginger and Cardamom. It has lanceolate leaves and cream-colored flowers. It can grow reaching more than 3 feet (1 meter) in height. Turmeric root contains from 2-5% curcumin depending on where it grows.
