The hepatoprotective effect in turmeric can be credited to curcumin which is the main bioactive agent. It helps minimize oxidative stress, reduces inflammation, improves lipid metabolism, and insulin sensitivity which lowers the risk of liver diseases and injury.

An experiment was conducted by scientists from the Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Israel, where they supplemented rats with induced liver cirrhosis with turmeric for 12 weeks. The anti-inflammatory property of turmeric inhibited the development of liver cirrhosis in rats.
