Curcumin is a turmeric derivative, which is the pigment that gives its yellow-orange color to curry. It is a compound that has been the subject of many studies, and whose health effects are multiple. The consequence is that turmeric is becoming increasingly popular as a dietary supplement and 100 grams of turmeric contain 3 to 5 grams of curcumin.
Chinese and Indian traditional medicines exploit the therapeutic properties of it for thousands of years. It is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxydant, anticancer, antiviral and antibacterial activities. Moreover, it has been shown that curcumin influences the expression of over 700 genes, which may explain its health benefits. Despite its range of reported pharmacological effects, curcumin is limited in its clinical applicability by its low bioavailability during oral administration.
