Curcumin + Piperine - The importance of combining the two!

Curcumin and other curcuminoids (key which are chemical compounds in turmeric) offer numerous health benefits since they are powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial agents.

Piperine is the key chemical in black pepper. Curcumin, which is a polyphenol, plays the same role in turmeric.

Turmeric is poorly absorbed in our body.

If one takes just turmeric, most of it will just pass as it is without being absorbed in body.

This fact has two consequences:

One does not get the full benefit of turmeric even when the dosages taken may be high. We have to find “something” by which the absorption can be enhanced.

Thanks to Mother Nature, one of the solution is right there in our kitchen – black pepper.

The best option is to take turmeric and ground pepper together.

Black pepper has piperine, which aids absorption of turmeric in the body by as much as 2000% and it plays an important role in absorption of turmeric through intestine.
