About the ingredients...
Turmeric and curcumin:
Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant (Curcuma longa) of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is native to southern Asia.
When not used fresh, the rhizomes (roots) are boiled for 30 - 45 minutes and then dried in hot ovens, after which they are ground into a deep orange/yellow powder that is commonly used as a natural colouring and delicious spice in Bangladeshi, Indian, Iranian and Pakistani cuisine, as well as for dyeing.
Turmeric root powder has been long used by Ayurvedic practitioners, largely due to its main constituent, curcumin. More recently, it has become increasingly popular in the Western world for use in both food and food supplements, after much TV, magazine and radio coverage.
Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, the normal function of the immune system, the protection of cells from oxidative stress, the maintenance of normal hair, nails and skin, normal DNA synthesis, normal acid-base metabolism, normal carbohydrate metabolism, normal cognitive function, normal fertility and reproduction, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal metabolism of fatty acids, normal metabolism of vitamin A, normal protein synthesis, the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood, the maintenance of normal vision and it has a role in the process of cell division.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale), is a rhizome - a thick underground stem that sprouts roots and shoots. This "hot" spice is native to warmer parts of Asia, such as China, Japan, and India, but is now also grown in parts of South American and Africa.
Fiercely hot and pungent, cayenne, also known as cayenne pepper, is one of the most widely used spice ingredients for culinary purposes. Cayenne fruits are slender, elongated pods derived from the capsicum family plant (a cultivar of Capsicum annuum related to bell peppers, jalapeños, paprika, and others). Cayenne is a source of capsaicin.
Piperine is the alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper and long pepper.
