Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.), also known as Curcuma, Baoding Xiang, Hao Ming, etc. It belongs to the genus Zingiberaceae of the turmeric family. Its perennial herbaceous plants are distributed in tropical and subtropical regions. Turmeric is widely distributed in Fujian, Sichuan, Guangxi, Yunnan, Zhejiang, Jiangxi and other places in China. Curcumin is an important natural active substance in turmeric. It is an orange crystal or powder obtained by extracting and purifying the roots of turmeric, which mainly contains curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and didemethoxycurcumin. Curcumin is widely used in coloring and flavoring, as well as a food additive and preservative to preserve food and improve the taste. In addition, curcumin has excellent medicinal functions, like anti-tumor, anti-pulmonary fibrosis, immunomodulation, liver protection and lipid reduction, antioxidation, scavenging free radicals, anti-inflammation and other effects and have been widely used in food, medicine, cosmetics and so on.

Curcuma Extract Benefits
Curcumin is a novel antioxidant, which can prevent the oxidative stress DNA damage induced by Pyruvic Aldehyde / Lysine, and inhibit apoptosis of monocytes and reactive oxygen species induced by Pyruvic Aldehyde. The molecular structure of curcumin contains phenolic hydroxyl groups, which has a strong ability to remove free radical. Curcumin can also significantly increase the activity of superoxide dismutase(SOD) and improve the body’s ability to scavenge oxygen free radicals. It is reported that curcumin has greater antioxidant activity than beta-carotene and tocopherol. At a concentration of 15 g/mL, curcumin could be scavenging superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide free radical in time, and exhibit excellent iron ion chelating activity.
Inflammation is a complex process, and cell infection or tissue damage can cause a series of chain reactions and lead to the rapid onset of some chronic diseases. The mechanism of curcumin inhibiting inflammation is mainly through inhibiting lipid peroxidation, reducing neutrophil immersion, reducing serine activity and so on. The study found that curcumin can also regulate the body’s Th1/Th2 cytokine balance by inhibiting the expression of IL-12 and IFN-γ in intestinal mucosa and treating colitis caused by trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid. Curcumin also has a strong broad-spectrum antifungal effect and has a strong inhibitory effect on Trichophyton rubrum, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, etc, which can treat skin diseases or improve intestinal flora.
Studies have shown that curcumin has an obvious inhibitory effect on the growth of various tumor cell lines, such as liver cancer cell 191, human nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell 1 01, kidney cancer cell 111, lung adenocarcinoma cell 121, prostate cancer cell and so on. The anti-tumor experiments in animals also indicate that curcumin has a strong anti-tumor effect. The anti-tumor mechanism of curcumin has effects on various stages and links of tumor cell growth, such as inducing tumor cell differentiation and apoptosis, hindering tumor cell gene expression, inhibiting tumor cell proliferation and differentiation, etc. But, it is generally believed that the mechanism of curcumin inhibiting tumor cells may be mainly related to the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. It can be achieved by inducing cancer cell cycle arrest, regulating oncogenes, inhibiting the expression of oncogenes and their proteins and regulating apoptosis signals, from DNA,mRNA to protein level can be used as its target.
● Prevention Of Cardiovascular Disease
Chen and other studies have shown that curcumin compounds can reduce blood lipids and anti-atherosclerosis. Sun Xiucai and others carried out animal experiments and the results showed that curcumin could significantly reduce the level of diet hyperlipidemia and serum total cholesterol level in liver, reduce the content of serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and increase the content of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The effect of curcumin on lowering serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is better than that of lowering high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and its mechanism may be related to increasing the activity of plasma metabolism-related enzymes. Curcumin can correct the disorder of endothelial active substances in hyperlipidemia rabbits, improve endothelial relaxation function and protect vascular endothelium and then prevent atherosclerosis.
● Pharmaceutical industry;
● Health care industry,like capsules,tablets;
● Food & Beverage industry.
Curcumin is a highly safe natural food coloring pigment. It is characterized by bright color, luster and has certain health and nutritional value. Curcumin is a premium food additive approved by the Committee of experts of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Turmeric is widely used in pasta products, curry powder, rice wine, cakes, biscuit spray, flour, starch products, high-grade feed, beverages granule orange, colored bead drinks, pickled products, candy, eggs, meat, cans, condiments, children’s food, cakes, bean products and other fast-moving consumer foods.
● Cosmetic industry
Curcumin is widely used in cosmetic formulations due to its various pharmacological effects such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, bacteriostatic and acaricidal. Studies have shown that curcumin has good resistance to tyrosinase and can absorb ultraviolet rays generated by outdoor sunlight, Therefore, cosmetics added curcumin has the effect of whitening sunscreen and removing freckles. The main mechanism is that gelatinase decomposes collagen, elastic hard protein and other fiber components in the skin under ultraviolet irradiation, while curcumin can inhibit the activity of gelatinase. And then give full play to its anti-wrinkle effect.
● Animals Feed Industry
The feed added with Curcumin can promote the growth, production and immune function of animals. Experiments showed that curcumin could significantly improve the bursa index and thymus index of broilers, which proved that curcumin could effectively promote the development of the immune system in broilers and significantly improve the immunity of broilers. The results showed that curcumin could improve the health of pigs and increase the daily weight gain of pigs by using curcumin instead of antibiotics in pig feed.
