Temulawak / Java Ginger (Shu Gu Jiang Huang), aka Java turmeric, is used to treat indigestion, stomach disorders, and liver and gallbladder complaints. Along with turmeric, it is in the ginger family of plants. Don’t confuse Java turmeric (aka temulawak/Curcuma xanthorrhiza Roxb.) with turmeric (Curcuma longa) which is best known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Both contain the constituent curcumin but Java turmeric also contains xanthorrhizol, a constituent known for supporting the production of bile.
