Curcumin is a natural extract from the spice turmeric. This spice is often found in curry powder, which helps give it that vibrant yellow color. Curcumin has been used since ancient times as a treatment for arthritis, digestive problems, as well as skin and wound treatments. Research has shown that curcumin possesses the following health benefits: it’s an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-bacterial, antifungal, and it also helps fight against certain cancers, diabetes and some research has shown the possibilities that it could help against Alzheimer’s. 
What better excuse to go grab some great Indian food or try cooking with it on your own. It’s a spice that not only has great flavor, but packs a nutritious punch as well.
