Benefits of Turmeric for Treating Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis (UC) belongs to the so-called inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and is characterized by digestive tract inflammation and ulcers that typically last a long time.

Curcumin and Curcuminoids

Curcumin is one of several curcuminoids, which are polyphonic compounds, present in turmeric. Turmeric contains approximately 2 percent curcumin by weight, so a tablespoon of turmeric, which weighs 6.8 grams, contains about 0.136 gram curcumin, or 136 milligrams. In addition to curcumin, turmeric also contains smaller amounts of the curcuminoids demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Researchers believe curcumin to be the most biologically active curcuminoid in turmeric.
