Turmeric, a vibrant yellow spice, has gained widespread popularity for its potential health benefits. From aiding digestion to reducing inflammation, turmeric has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.
We’ve all heard about turmeric’s numerous health advantages. Turmeric is beneficial for digestion, inflammation, liver problems, joint discomfort, headaches, and many other ailments. Having said that, it is vital to remember that, like many other vitamins and nutrients, turmeric should never be taken on its own. Turmeric belongs to a class of substances that, when consumed alone, are poorly absorbed by the body.
It is estimated that 7-15% of turmeric taken orally is absorbed in its raw form. This is why you’ll find a variety of turmeric black pepper supplements, often known as piperine or bioperine. It does not take much to see a big improvement in absorption and use. My favorite combination is turmeric, ginger, and bioperine.
This permits the body to absorb and use more ginger and turmeric, which work together as a synergist. I’ve seen this combo reduce inflammation and thus difficulties in the back, neck, gut, lungs, shoulders, and elbows, and it’s a crucial component of many of my liver cleanses.
