Antimicrobial

Turmeric is used as an antimicrobial for preserving food (Jayaprakasha et al 2005) and has been found to have antifungal activity, as well as inhibiting aspergillus growth and aflatoxin production in feeds (Gowda et al 2004).

Curcumin has also been found to have dose-dependent, antiprotozoan activity against Giardia lamblia with inhibition of parasite growth and adherent capacity, induction of morphological alterations and apoptosis-like changes in vitro (Perez-Arriaga et al 2006). Curcumin has also shown in vitro and in vivo activity against malaria, with inhibition of growth of chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum in vitro and enhancement of survival in mice infected with P. berghei (Reddy et al 2005).
