Pharmacological Action: Turmeric's active constituents are curcuminoids including curcumin. It seems to have anti-inflammatory activity, possibly inhibiting COX-2, prostaglandins, and leukotrienes. It also exibits chemopreventive and growth inhibitory acitivity against several tumor cell lines. It seems to induce apoptosis in cancer cells an may inhibit angiogenesis. It may also have antithrombotic effects. Preliminary research suggests it might inhibit platelet-activating factor and arachidonic platelet aggregation, possibly by interfering with thromboxane synthesis. Further preliminary research suggests that turmeric might also have antioxidant and immunostimulatory effects. Since bioavailability is very low after oral administration, the Fortifood product uses a patented extract proven to enhance absorption by up to 700%.

Preliminary studies of its use in the prevention and treatment of various cancers also show promising results.
