Curcumin was first isolated from turmeric Curcumalonga L. for the first time in 1870 from a low relative molecular mass polyphenol compound. In 1910, the chemical structure of its double feruloyl methane was clarified. The subsequent progress in the study of its physiological and pharmacological effects was made. With the further study of curcumin, it has been found that it has extensive pharmacological activities such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, lipid regulating, antiviral, anti infection, anti-tumor, anticoagulant, anti hepatic fibrosis, anti atherosclerosis and other pharmacological activities, with low toxicity and less adverse reactions.
