    Origin of the Turmeric

    Turmeric is a species obtained from the rhizomes of Curcuma Longa, a member of the kion family (Zingiberaceae). Rhizomes are underground horizontal stems that send both roots downwards and buds upwards.

    It is a plant of Asian origin, considered as a magical plant given its organoleptic characteristics and its undoubted therapeutic and protective properties, especially at the hepatic and cutaneous level (4, 5). It is grown mainly in China, India, Indonesia, Jamaica and Peru. In the high forest it grows more profusely due to the fertility of the soil, the rhizomes are larger and have higher content of turmeric acid. In the low jungle it grows in clay-silty soils (beaches) that were fertilized during the river’s growing stage, leaving the land cleared during the emptying.

    Benefits of the turmeric

    Prevention of skin cancer

    Improvement in the gastrointestinal tract
    Curcumin inhibits the production of IL-8 induced by Helicobacter pylori, which plays an important role in the development of gastritis, ulcer and gastric adenocarcinoma. Protection against stomach tumors.
    Improvement in brain function
    Curcumin can prevent the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques, which correlates with Alzheimer's disease.
    Hepatoprotective activity
    Turmeric increases the glutathione content and its glutathione-s-transferase activity in the liver. By increasing the expulsion of bile acids by 100%, the solubility of bile, which corroborates its traditional use for gallstones, prevents the accumulation of fat induced by excessive lipid intake in the liver and adipose tissue.
    Anti-inflammatory activity
    Curcumin is able to alleviate inflammatory problems related to multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis by modulating the cytokine signal, a type of proinflammatory molecules. This anti-inflammatory capacity is partly due to its ability to inhibit the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins.
    Anticancer effects
