Turmeric is the primary spice in the Indian dish curry, and contains bioactive compounds known as curcuminoids with over 12,000 peer-reviewed studies supporting their wide-ranging benefits. Curcuminoids from turmeric and their derivatives have been shown to possess a wide range of biological activities including antioxidant, antimicrobial, neuroprotective, cardioprotective and radioprotective effects. The biological activity of turmeric has been attributed mainly to curcumin, and two related compounds demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin. The average intake of turmeric in the Indian diet is approximately 2–2.5 grams per day for a 60 kg individual which corresponds to a daily intake of approximately 60–100 mg of curcumin.
