Application of turmeric root extract in medicine

Turmeric root extract is a common medicine, and its main bioactive components are turmeric root extract and volatile oil. The former has the functions of lowering blood lipid, anticoagulation, antioxidation, choleretic, anticancer, etc., while the latter has the functions of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antitussive. turmeric root extracts play an important role in cancer prevention by inducing differentiation, apoptosis and inhibition of tumor growth.


Turmeric root extract is a plant polyphenol extracted from Curcuma longa. It is also the most important active component of Curcuma longa. Recent studies have not only proved the traditional role of turmeric, but also revealed some new pharmacological effects, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidation, scavenging oxygen free radicals, anti-human immunodeficiency virus, protecting liver and kidney, anti fibrosis, anti-cancer and anti-cancer, which may be related to the inhibition of activation and expression of transcription factors such as nuclear factor kappa B and activator protein-1, and there is no obvious toxicity Side effect.

Turmeric root extract in curry can not only decompose amyloid protein in the brain of mice, but also prevent the production of this protein, according to the animal experiment of Duke University. Eating curry regularly may also have a similar effect on people, helping to prevent Alzheimer's, the researchers said.

Many studies have proved that the accumulation of amyloid protein in the brain is one of the main causes of Alzheimer's disease. Previous studies have shown that turmeric root extract, the key ingredient in curry, can prevent brain nerve cell damage and improve the function of brain nerve cell.

According to US media reports, researchers at Duke University in the United States have genetically modified mice to produce many amyloid proteins in their brains. The researchers then provided turmeric root extract rich food to the mice, and found that the amyloid protein in the brain of the mice was broken down, and the same diet could prevent amyloid protein from appearing in the brain of the mice in adulthood.


Inflammation is a complex process, which is caused by cell infection and /or tissue damage. A series of chain reactions eventually lead to the rapid development of some chronic diseases. Since inflammation plays an important role in most chronic diseases, anti-inflammatory drugs are needed to prevent it. Although some different steroidal and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as semicorx, aspirin, ibuprofen, and Baotaisong, can be used to treat inflammatory diseases, most of them have side effects. It was found that the anti-inflammatory activity of turmeric root extract was comparable to that of steroidal and non steroidal drugs, such as indomethacin and Baotaisong, and it was safe in most cases.
