So, what is curcumine?

Curcumin is a bright yellow pigment found in turmeric, a popular spice commonly used in Asian cuisine. This bioactive compound is known for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a popular ingredient in dietary supplements and traditional medicine. Curcumin has been studied for its potential health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease. It is also used as a natural food coloring and flavoring agent in many food products. Despite its promising benefits, curcumin's low bioavailability is a challenge for its use in therapeutic applications, leading to ongoing research on ways to enhance its absorption and efficacy.
