What is Curcumin?

This golden-coloured spice, found in East Indian cuisines, is the active ingredient of the Curcuma Longa plant, also known as turmeric.  This powerful herb is a member of the ginger family and is used widely in Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Research has proven that curcumin has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

  • helps many digestive disorders
  • significant cancer therapy applications

How can it be taken?

Curcumin is natural and safe.
