You’ve likely heard about the many health benefits of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) and its compound curcumin.
But did you know that it can be difficult to “unlock” the nutrients in turmeric so your body can actually take full advantage of them?
Turmeric is a staple remedy from the traditional medicine systems of the Far East. Out of all herbs and spices, it seems like turmeric has gained the most widespread popularity as a “super” spice in the West in recent years.
Turmeric’s many health-supportive properties are attributed to curcumin, a key component of turmeric that’s been studied extensively for its:
- anti-inflammatory properties
- antioxidant properties
- impact on longevity
Curcumin is documented in the scientific literature as offering powerful support for the cardiovascular, neurological, metabolic, immune, and cellular systems.
It’s also the part of turmeric that gives this root spice its rich, golden yellow color.But the truth of the matter is that humans have a difficult time getting all the health benefits from turmeric when consuming the spice all by itself.
Research shows that only a very small portion of its active ingredient (compound) is assimilated into the body when eaten in isolation. One popular way to make the compounds in turmeric more bioavailable (i.e., absorbable and usable to the body) is to pair it with another popular cooking spice:
BLACK PEPPER.This pairing approach of turmeric with black pepper (or curcumin with black pepper) comes with limitations, however, as too much black pepper can actually be detrimental to health – especially in people with gastrointestinal issues.Rain made it easy: cut out the active ingredient of pepper- PIPPERINE and let every stomach enjoy its benefits
