The Micronutrients in Turmeric

Curcumin, the main yellow pigment in turmeric, is the most prevalent and studied healing element found in the plant's rhizome. But it is hardly the whole story. Including the curcuminoids, scientists have identified at least 300 different compounds in turmeric. (ii.1-8)

Although many of the compounds found in turmeric are in relatively small concentrations, they could still be beneficial. Recent research shows that dietary factors, even in low amounts, can switch genes on or off. This epigenetic activity can help prevent diseases such as cancer (or be harmful, in the case of toxins). (ii.9)
