Turmeric and black pepper, a great healing combination!
And if you don’t yet know why the amazing turmeric root should be a part of your regular diet then find out here: The top 3 benefits of turmeric
There are many chemical compounds in turmeric that can really benefit the body! One of them being Curcumin. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
In order for your body to properly absorb the curcumin in turmeric and even boost absorption levels is by quite simply adding a dash of black pepper to the turmeric!
Because most of the curcumin gets metabolized before it has a chance to be absorbed, it’s important to consume with black pepper to properly take advantage of all the benefits turmeric has to offer. The black pepper will increase the bio-availability within turmeric and allow the body to absorb more of it!
Keep this in mind when creating your turmeric concoctions or using it to really flavor up some food.
