Curcumin, the main active and most valuable ingredient of turmeric, is a promising addition to the treatment of oncological and chronic patients. The most common way of using this plant is by mouth, as a spice, tea or capsule. Although the oral use of curcumin has been show to give some benefit, poor absorption into the bloodstream and kinetic distribution doesn’t allow it to be therapeutical.

When administered intravenously, curcumin bypasses the intestines and liver and is absorbed directly into the blood and affected area where it operates at the cellular level.It has high anti-inflamatroy, anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Studies on different types of tumors show the potential of curcumin to interfere with cellular signaling pathways to prevent tumor growth and its spread of cells to other parts of the body. It has also been shown that intravenous use of curcumin can reduce side effects of chemotherapy.
