  author={Puneet Gandhi and Zeba H. Khan and Nivedita Chakraverty},
Curcumin, the most active polyphenolic constituent of turmeric curcuminoids obtained from the rhizome Curcuma longa, holds a high place in ayurvedic medicine but its role in conventional disease management has also been established. However, it has poor bioavailability due to insolubility in water becomes a limiting factor. Increasing its solubility followed by assessment of effect of oral consumption of soluble curcumin on pathological parameters on healthy human volunteers, sixteen healthy…
