What is turmeric?
What is curcumin?
Turmeric is made up of bioactive compounds, collectively known as curcuminoids. Curcumin is the primary curcuminoid and the most active ingredient in turmeric. Many studies have shown that it is the curcumin that is responsible for many of the health benefits associated with turmeric.
Turmeric contains around 3% curcuminoids. Therefore one teaspoon of turmeric powder (about 5,000 mg) only provides about 150 mg of curcuminoids.
