Turmeric, i.e. Curcuma Longa originated from tropical countries and is widely used in culinary art. Rhizomes of the plant are characterized by intense yellow color, distinctive scent and bitter-spicy taste. They are also valuable raw material for therapeutic use. They contain a large amount of biologically active substances – curcuminoids. The most popular representative of this group is curcumin.
Curcumin shows cholagogic effect – it increases bile secretion, improves its flow in the bile ducts and regulates contractility of the gall bladder. In addition, it has spasmolytic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It also has great anti-cancer potential, confirmed by numerous clinical studies. Supplements based on turmeric are recommended, among others, in the course of inflammation of the bile ducts, disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, hepatic insufficiency and gallstones. They are also used to combat chronic inflammation in the body. In addition, they can be included as part of cancer prevention.
