Why is turmeric probably the most important spice in the world? Curcumin, the yellow pigment and primary medicinal component of the plant has been studied in over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies. Studies have shown turmeric to be as effective as 7 different classifications of drugs including: Lipitor/Atorvastatin (Cholesterol Medication), Corticosteroids (steroid medications), Prozac/Fluoxetine & Imipramine, (antidepressants), Aspirin (blood thinner), Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, Oxaliplatin (chemotherapy drug) and Metformin (diabetes drug).

Turmeric and Inflammation
The majority of peer reviewed science papers on curcumin have studied its anti-inflammatory properties. In 2009, a paper in the International Journal of Biochemistry and Cell Biology laid out the remarkable anti-inflammatory therapeutic effect of curcumin on regulating transcription factors, cytokines, protein kinases, adhesion molecules, redox status and enzymes that have been linked to inflammation.
