Austin, Texas — By adopting turmeric, EuroPharma, has now joined the American Botanical Council’s (ABC) Adopt-an-Herb program, which helps ABC not only expand the company’s nonprofit educational mission, but also “keeps its HerbMedPro database updated with the latest scientific and clinical research.”

“Representing turmeric, an herb with such life-changing possibilities and significant clinical studies in the evidence-based database of ABC, is a great alignment with the mission of EuroPharma," said Terry Lemerond, EuroPharma’s founder, in a press release. “We look forward to stewarding the ever-growing scientific and clinical data on this far-reaching herb, which contains the key component curcumin: a compound with an extraordinary scientific profile.”

HerbMedPro, an interactive online database, provides access to 250 herbs. Access includes clinical research and scientific data for researchers, professionals and even the general public.

“All of us at ABC are deeply grateful to Terry Lemerond, Cheryl Myers, Lisa Joski, and the entire EuroPharma team for its adoption of turmeric, one of the most popular herbs in today’s market,” said ABC founder and executive director Mark Blumenthal, in a press release. “There is so much scientific and clinical information being published each year on turmeric rhizome and its extracts — a veritable explosion of research findings — that it is quite challenging to keep up with reading and summarizing the literally hundreds of new papers cited in our robust HerbMedPro database.”
