Abstract

TURMERIC: A WONDER DRUG IN AYURVEDIC ERA

*Tiwari B.K., Agrawal G.P.

ABSTRACT

Turmeric, a spice derived from the rhizome of the plant Curcuma longa, contains the chemical curcumin, which is responsible for turmeric's taste, color, and biologic properties. Curcumin is used as a spice in foods, as a treatment in traditional medicine, as a dye for fleece, and as a component in nutritional supplements. A few cases of allergic contact dermatitis from curcumin have been reported. Though Turmeric is common it is an uncommonly beautiful plant with orange red lily-like flowers and deep green long slender leaves that smell like mangos. Most of the Ayurvedic doctors that I meet in India consider Turmeric, to be one of the best herbs of India, and many go as far as saying that it is the best. What Ayurveda has known for millennium modern science is now starting to prove for itself in laboratories and clinics around the world.

Keywords: Turmeric, Ayurvedic medicine, Herb, tradition.
