Turmeric has amazingly powerful properties. Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a large-leaved herb, closely related to ginger. It is cultivated in tropical countries for the thick, rounded, underground stems or rhizomes, which constitute the spice, turmeric. Curcumin is the yellow pigment of turmeric which gives curry dishes its yellow color and nice flavor.
Turmeric is the key spice in curry. Curcumin has been used in both Indian and Chinese cultures for thousands of years.
