·        Cardiovascular Effects: A turmeric oil with 45.0–58.0% ar-turmerone dose-dependently inhibited glucosidase enzymes more effectively than the antidiabetic drug acarbose.


Systemic Effects       

·        Acute Toxicity: Non-toxic. Turmeric rhizome oil acute oral LD50 in rats >5 g/kg; acute dermal LD50 in rabbits >5 g/kg.

·        Carcinogenic/anti carcinogenic potential: Turmeric rhizome oil was markedly antimutagenic against sodium azide in the Ames test, and showed a possibly related antioxidant activity. Turmeric rhizome oil was active against human mouth epidermal carcinoma cells and mouse leukemia cells, with respective IC50 values of 1.088 and 0.084 mg/mL. Turmeric rhizome oil contains no known carcinogens. b-Sesquiphellandrene, ar-turmerone and a-caryophyllene display anticarcinogenic activity.

·        Subchronic toxicity, human Turmeric rhizome oil was orally administered to eight volunteers at 0.2 mL 3 times daily for one month, followed by 1.0 mL per day in three divided doses for 2 further months. One developed a rash on the trunk on the second day; this became worse on the seveth day, and the volunteer dropped out of the study. The rash subsequently resolved. In the remaining seven volunteers, compared to baseline measurements, there were no significant changes in heart rate, blood pressure, body weight, hematological tests liver function tests or kidney function tests. In lipid profile testing, six volunteers showed no change in fasting sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL or LDL. In one volunteer, tricglycerides and LDL were normal at 4 weeks, but elevated at 12 weeks. Levels had returned to normal one month after discontinuing the turmeric oil. There was no change in the menstrual pattern of the three female volunteers. The turmeric oil used in this study contained 59% turmeroneþar- turmerone, and 25% zingiberene.
