Clinical Researches

Curcuma longa L., is a plant of Asian origin widely used as a spice in Asian culture. The main component is curcumin, one of the active ingredients responsible for its biological activity. It is known that this substance is stable in the stomach and small intestine; its high lipophilicity allows rapid gastrointestinal absorption by passive diffusion. After administration, it is metabolized and excreted mainly by bile and feces, and also by urine. Its main metabolites are also bioactive.

Since ancient times, many properties for Curcuma longa extracts and for curcumin have been described. Its antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasitic activity is known, and its ability to inhibit HIV-1 integrase has recently been demonstrated. Specific effects have also been demonstrated in other tissues and organs, such as the skin, the gastrointestinal and respiratory system and in the liver.

All these properties are due to different mechanisms of action. Turmeric has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, through modulation of eicosanoid metabolism, it has immunomodulatory capacity, mainly by altering the Thl cytokine profile of T helper lymphocytes, and hypolipidemic activity, lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and plasma phospholipids as well as in LDL.

There are many studies that demonstrate the ability of turmeric to stabilize membranes and to prevent lipid peroxidation, a fundamental process in the establishment, progression and complications of many pathologies such as liver, kidney, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative diseases, in diabetes and In the falls. The latest research on the biological effects of turmeric extracts and curcuminoids are aimed at studying their anticancer activity, mainly against skin, colon and duodenal cancer.
