What is Curcumin Used For? Health Benefits and Side Effects of Curcumin in Food

Curcumin has been used for medicinal purposes since centuries due to its health benefits of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects. It is thus being widely used for relief of joint pains, acute infections and for cardiovascular and circulatory support. It maintains serum cholesterol levels and is good for obesity, digestive purposes and for liver protection. It is also used for the treatment of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and psoriasis. It is a popular spice and is also widely used in beverages, bakery items, ice- creams and sausages. One of the side effects is contact dermatitis seen on the scalp and skin of those sensitive to Curcumin. Another side effect includes abnormal menstrual flow and mild stomach distress. It must not be taken in pregnancy and can cause miscarriage.
