Curcumin is a natural compound found in turmeric, a yellow-colored spice commonly used in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisine. It is often used as a dietary supplement and is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

In terms of protein powder use, curcumin is sometimes added as an ingredient due to its potential ability to reduce muscle soreness and promote muscle recovery after exercise. It may also help to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body, which can be beneficial for overall health and well-being.

Curcumin is generally considered safe when taken in recommended doses, but high doses may cause gastrointestinal issues such as nausea, diarrhea, and stomach upset.
