White Turmeric (Curcuma aromatica Salisb)

Dear Sir,

 

We Would like to introduce a multi faced herbal known as Original Kasturi Manjal and the botanic name is Curcuma aromatica Salisb which is  mentioned as ‘Vanaharidra’ in Ayurveda, belongs to the ‘ginger family’ Zingiberaceae.

 

 It is a perennial herb with characteristic aromatic rhizomes used in many traditional systems of medicines in India, China and other Southeast Asian countries. The rhizome of the plant is rich in alkaloids, flavonoids, curcuminoids, tannins and terpenoids which are reported to be the reasons for its various pharmacological properties.

 

The extraction of compounds in different solvents shows that the plant contains curdione, neocurdione, germacrone as its major components. Extensive literature survey showed that the plant has anti-cancerous, anti-obesity, anti-acne, anti-tussive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic and wound healing properties.

 

The rhizome extract of the plant is highly effective against many human pathogens as well as microorganisms causing food spoilage and food borne diseases. The plant thus proves to be a promising candidate for the development and designing of modern drugs for several diseases. The present study was aimed to review the phytochemical and pharmacological properties of C. aromatica Salisb.

 

 

We are in a position to regular supply of White turmeric.
