Curcumin: A pharmacologically functional active ingredient from nature


Author(s): Pooja Pandey, Bulbul Ali and Abha Mishra

Abstract: Curcumin is a widely used Indian rhizomatous medicinal plant from the family Zingiberaceae, an orange-yellow polyphenolic and hydrophobic phytochemical element of the turmeric herb (Curcuma longa Linn.), has been shown to have strong immunomodulatory properties varieties of nutritional value in both animals and humans. Science technology, a relatively recent scientific research field, is commonly used in medical sciences, but it has limited implementations in fish nutrition at the present day. Many experiments have shown that curcumin and its derivatives have beneficial effects on animal nutrition when used as medicinal agents as well as nutritional agents. Although curcumin shows beneficial effects, studies have shown that ingestion of curcumin or its derivatives has even less impact on animal efficiency or welfare due to its poor bioavailability, rapid metabolism, and removal from the animal body; thus, advanced curcumin formulations are required. This study focuses on the health advantages of curcumin and its derivatives, as well as its possible use in fish growth. Furthermore, this study discusses curcumin as well as its derivatives, as well as their uses in fish nutrition, in the future.
