Curcumin is known for its antitumor, antioxidant, anti-amyloid and anti-inflammatory properties. Science News wrote several bits of information about Turmeric in 2007. It appears to help prevent, and possibly treat, Alzheimer’s disease. Normally the herb or herb tea or extract is taken.
Prima Fleur’s Turmeric CO2 Select [No. 352] is organically-grown in India and extracted from the rhizomes. The extract is a deep orange-colored liquid (no wax), and is very nice in perfumery for both color and scent, and in your culinary endeavors where just a tiny amount adds a lot of scent and flavor.
