TURMERIC AS ANTIOXIDANT
In the bright yellow pigment of Turmeric are curcuminoids which are antioxidants with the property of scavenging the free radical nitric oxide. The action of Turmeric, it is suggested is not only in blocking nitric oxide directly but also the enzyme that produces it. Curcuminoids also appear to have a role in attacking invading micro-organisms.
