Turmeric, the main ingredient of curry powder, is thought to have arisen as a hybrid between wild turmeric (Curcuma aromatica), native to India, and other closely related species. It is thought to originate from South or Southeast Asia -Vietnam, China, or western India. Turmeric doesn’t produce seeds but grows from the rootstalk. It contains diarylheptanoids and diarylpentanoids, phenylpropene and other phenolic compounds, monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, diterpenes, triterpenoids, sterols, alkaloids, and other compounds. Its major bioactive ingredients are curcuminoids (diarylheptanoids) and essential oils.
Turmeric may be beneficial for coughs, diabetes, dermatological conditions, respiratory problems, cardiovascular and hepatobiliary diseases, arthritis, irritable bowel disease (IBS), peptic ulcers, psoriasis, and atherosclerosis.
