Chemical structures of resveratrol and curcumin. Curcumin is derived from the rhizomes of turmeric (Curcuma longa) and resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes, red berries, peanuts, root extracts of the weed Polygonum cuspidatum and numerous other plants. As suggested by their chemical structure, both compounds are polyphenols and therefore they exhibit similar properties as anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory agents and can act as free radical scavengers.
