Curcumin, which gives the curry spice tumeric its bright yellow color, could be helpful in treating painful inflammatory conditions, such as tendinitis and arthritis, according to researchers at the University of Nottingham in the U.K. Researchers at UCLA have shown that the curry pigment curcumin slows the formation of, and even destroys, accumulated plaque deposits which can lead to Alzheimer's Disease.
