Curcumin is turmeric extract, the most important functional ingredient in turmeric. The curcumin content in yellow is very rare, generally only 2%-5%, so the average curcumin content of 30mg is equivalent to 1 kg of turmeric.
Medicine now shows that curcumin has special effects on health:
Curcumin has antiviral activity and inhibits TGEV (transmissible gastroenteritis virus).
