Haridra (Turmeric/Curcuma longa) is a vital herb in Ayurvedic medicine, whose spice form can be recognized by its dazzling yellow color. The rhizome of the herb, used either fresh or dried, has a host of medicinal benefits. It acts as a carminative and also enhances the complexion and skin tone. Apart from that, Haridra can be used to combat liver damage, respiratory disorders and ulcers. In the past decade, Haridra's principal 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 (???Common Indian Spice Stirs Hope???, Wall Street Journal, 2005). In a summary of Haridra 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 benefits, saying ???recent studies on curcuminoids, particularly curcumin, have discovered not only much on the therapeutic activities, but also on mechanisms of molecular biological action??? (Chinese Medical Journal, September 2008, 17;3:11). Herb functions: Lowering cholesterol: Haridra???s cholesterol-lowering actions include preventing intestinal cholesterol absorption, increasing the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids and increasing the excretion of bile acids, due to its choleretic properties. Hepatoprotective: The curcuminoids present in Haridra prevent the increase in the liver enzymes SGOT and SGPT which are elevated in the case of liver disease. This validates the use of Haridra as a hepatoprotective drug in liver disorders. Anti-ulcer: The herb decreases gastric acid secretion, increases the mucin content of gastric juices and exerts gastroprotective effects against stress-, alcohol- and drug-induced ulcer formation. Anti-inflammatory: Haridra acts as an anti-inflammatory herb in both acute and chronic inflammation. Haridra prevents the release of inflammatlS.
