Turmeric contains an exceptionally long list of biological effects demonstrated in preclinical models and in human medical studies. The use of turmeric, the dried powdered rhizome of C. longa, and of other species of the same genus, that are native to south and southeast Asia, for the treatment of various diseases, dates back to antiquity. Ethnobotanists have reported that this plant has been used throughout a large part of human history, in particular in Orissa, India, and probably well before the great Indus valley civilization. However, the paucity of historical records regarding its origin suggests that it was cultivated in more than one center. Trade by sea and land, with the exchange not only of spices but also of spice plants, has certainly contributed to the spread knowledge regarding its medicinal use over great distances in antiquity, before being later transmitted to the Middle East, Africa, Europe and America. From the middle of the 18th to the first third of the 20th century, the first pharmacological described the numerous uses of turmeric. In it was identified major chemical principles and documented the successful treatment of hepatic and biliary diseases in patients in the scientific literature. In addition to being a choleretic, the antiseptic properties of turmeric were considered to be responsible for the therapeutic effects observed in patients with biliary diseases.
