It has a significant inhibitory effect on prostate Pc-3M, LNCaP and PC3, human nasopharyngeal carcinoma NCE cells, gastric adenocarcinoma SGC7901 cells and other cancer cells.

The anti-tumor mechanism of curcumin may be related to the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. It is achieved by regulating the expression of tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes and their proteins, inducing cell cycle arrest and regulating apoptosis signals. Curcumin can also inhibit tumor cell invasion and metastasis, improve the sensitivity of tumor cells to chemotherapy and improve the effect of chemotherapy, which are of great significance to the prevention and treatment of cancer.

It has a certain effect on various degenerative diseases such as memory loss and Alzheimer's disease. Liang Guicheng and others have summarized a number of studies on curcumin in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases , they found that curcumin can maintain calcium balance, stabilize lysosomal membranes, inhibit ventricular remodeling, and protect myocardium; it can relax blood vessels, promote angiogenesis, and resist atherosclerosis. Like sclerosis, it has the effect of protecting blood vessels, and it also plays an important role in improving blood vessel microcirculation.
