Curcumin is a substance that is found in the spice turmeric. It has been suggested as a supplemental treatment for several different types of conditions, including the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Curcumin has been studied for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Because IBD (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and indeterminate colitis) are immune-mediated conditions that cause inflammation, there has been some research into whether curcumin can be helpful. This article will explore the evidence looking into whether or not curcumin is a viable adjuvant treatment option for IBD.
