Radioactivity was detectable in blood, liver and kidney of rats following dosage with 400, 80 or 10 mg of [-3H]curcumin, the major pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa). The major route of elimination of the label was the faeces: urinary excretion of the label was very low regardless of the dose. At the lower doses of 80 and 10 mg, most of the label was excreted within 72 h, while with 400 mg, considerable amounts of the label were present in the tissues 12 days after dosage. The % of curcumin absorbed (60-66% of the dose given) remained constant regardless of the dose administered.
