Abstract

Background & Aim: In our daily lives, we need to use some supplements to support our bodily functions besides our daily diet. It is essential to get some additional minerals and vitamins required to reinforce our normal diet in today’s conditions. There are different food supplements that vary according to the body’s need. It is important to know if these supplements have the right ingredients or not. In the present study, our aim is to investigate the ingredients and antioxidant potential of a kind of herbal drug used for protection against deterioration of joint cartilage.
Experimental: In order to examine the magnetic and structural properties of the herbal drug, several spectroscopic methods (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer, X-Ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy) were applied at room temperature. The powdered form of the herbal medicine pill was used for analysis.
Results: We observed a broad signal with a g value of ≈2.0010 and with a line width of 185 G due to the higher Mn concentration by electron paramagnetic resonance. However, in the spectrum, we determined a weak shoulder with g value of 2.0040 which can be attributed to a carbon centered radical. Two x-ray diffraction peaks centered at ≈26.5° and 38° were assigned to turmeric which is an important component for assisting in reducing of inflammation and pain. The elemental composition results were in good agreement with the other applied techniques.
Recommended applications/industries: It will be important to carry out alternatively supportive spectroscopic studies in health-related applications.
