In India, Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been a traditional household item for centuries. The rhizomes are boiled, baked and ground into the fragrant, yellow-orange powder used as an ingredient in curry. Turmeric has also been used throughout history as a food preservative. In the past decade, Turmeric's principle constituent, curcumin, has been extensively studied by Western researchers and scientists for its antioxidant activity. Researchers continue to study curcumin in relation to normal cell growth and normal brain function. In a summary of Turmeric studies done between 1978-2008, researchers at the Natural Products Research Laboratories, School of Pharmacy, University of North Carolina noted many of the herb's supportive uses, saying "recent studies on curcuminoids, particularly curcumin, have discovered not only much on the therapeutic activities, but also on mechanisms of molecular biological action." Faculty of Arts and Sciences researchers at the Department of Chemistry, Ataturk University, Turkey studied the antioxidant properties of the curcumin in Turmeric and found it to be effectively supportive of the body's own natural peroxidation response to numerous free radicals.
