Curcumin, the reason that turmeric has a bright yellow color has been touted as a powerful ingredient with wide-ranging uses. Some use it as a disinfectant. Others use it for its cosmetic properties.
Yet, many people prefer to use this compound as a treatment for minor ailments like laryngitis and more serious conditions like diabetes.
