4.About Turmeric(Curcuma longa L.)
Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) was highly esteemed by the ancient Indo-European people for its gold-yellow dye resembling sunlight. The brilliant yellow color of turmeric, which is resistant to very high dilutions, found its way to commercial use as a coloring agent for various items including cotton, silk, paper, wood, foodstuffs, and cosmetics.
Turmeric(Curcuma longa L.) is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae(of the suborder Zingiberoidae), consists of more than a hundred species and several varieties of rhizomatous herbs, grown extensively in East and Southeast Asia. The commonly used ginger, Zingiber officinale Rosc., is also an economically important member of the same family.
Curcuma longa is a perennial plant with roots or tubers oblong-palmate, and deep orange inside. Leaves about 2 feet long, lanceolate, long, petioled, tapering at each end, smooth, of a uniform green. Flowers are dull yellow, three or five together surrounded by bracteolae. It is propagated by cuttings from the root. In fresh state, the roots have an aromatic and spicy fragrance, which by drying gives way to a more medicinal aroma.
The Benefits of Curcuma
Curcuma, more commonly known as turmeric, may help treat a variety of different ailments. Healers have used the herb for medicinal purposes for more than 4,000 years. In Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, herbalists value Curcuma as an effective anti-inflammatory agent and wound healer. Although generally considered safe when taken as directed, large doses of turmeric may cause upset stomach or in rare cases, ulcers. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, the amount of turmeric found in food is considered safe. People with diabetes or gallstones, individuals taking prescription drugs, and pregnant or nursing women should not take turmeric supplements without a doctor’s consent.
1) Digestive Problems
Curcumin stimulates bile production in the gallbladder, which may help improve digestion. The German Commission E, the body of experts who determine which herbs to safely prescribe in the country, endorses turmeric for treating a variety of digestive problems including indigestion, bloating, gas and dyspepsia. The herb may also benefit sufferers of inflammatory conditions such as ulcerative colitis. A 2006 study published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology examined patients whose ulcerative colitis was in remission. The patients taking daily turmeric supplements experienced a much lower relapse rate than patients taking placebo over a period of six months.
Turmeric may provide some benefit to sufferers of osteoarthritis because of its ability to reduce inflammation. In India, healers have used the herb for thousands of years to treat and prevent inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. A study published in 2009 in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine examined patients with knee arthritis taking either Curcuma domestica extract or ibuprofen daily for six weeks. At the end of the study, researchers found that Curcuma domestica worked just as well as ibuprofen for reducing pain caused by arthritis in the knee without any adverse side effects.
Turmeric may help prevent, control or even kill several types of cancer including breast, colon and prostate. A study published in 2001 in the scientific journal “The Prostate,” found that curcumin significantly inhibits prostate cancer growth and has the potential to prevent the progression of the cancer to its hormone refractory state. Although further human trials are required before doctors can recommend curcuma, the substance appears to have a strong potential for fighting many different cancers. The University of Maryland Medical Center explains that the herb may work by stopping the growth of the blood vessels that supply cancerous growths, and its preventative effects may derive from its antioxidant activity that protects cells from damage.
4) Other Benefits
Curcuma longa has a long history of medicinal use. Today, herbalists and doctors use the herb to treat stomach ulcers, diabetes, bacterial and viral infections, uveitis and atherosclerosis, though scientific research has only just begun to prove the herb’s efficacy for treating these ailments. Some of turmeric’s traditional, though clinically unproven, uses include treating eczema, endometriosis, tendinitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cataracts, cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, halitosis, periodontal disease, heart attack and AIDS.
