The primary active component of turmeric — and the one that gives the spice its characteristic yellow color — is curcumin.

In fact, you can credit curcumin as the compound responsible for most of turmeric’s potential health benefits. “Curcumin is a natural antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as possible benefits related to slowing the aging process and preventing Alzheimer's disease and potentially depression.
