Curcuma Extract

Extracted from the Curcuma longa root, a herb widely grown in the beautiful tropical areas of south-western Asia, turmeric (Curcuma extract) is a powder that has been used around the world for centuries. In fact, analysis on pots found near New Delhi in India showed traces of turmeric that dates back around 4,500 years.

As well as being used for flavouring and colouring food, Curcuma extract has a number of interesting health benefits that have made it one of the most popular natural remedies around. Traditionally, turmeric was burnt and inhaled to alleviate congestion, rubbed on wounds to help with bruising, and made into a paste to apply to skin conditions.

More About Curcuma Extract

Today, Curcuma extract is mainly used as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant supplement by most people. These properties all come from curcumin, which is the active ingredient in the extract. Turmeric is also known to support the liver and the immune system and generally help the body operate in a healthy way.

Curcuma extract contains a higher percentage of curcumin than traditional cooking turmeric. This means it is more effective in all of the medicinal areas it can’t really be replaced by the supermarket-bought version.

This powerful plant extract is available in powder form.
