Turmeric has many healing, medicinal properties. It is a very powerful spice. Turmeric is rich in antioxidants and full of bioactive compounds that offer very powerful medicinal properties.
Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, is a very strong antioxidant, with powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This helps to reduce inflammation within the body, reducing risks of diseases, disorders, and infections.
Curcumin, an anti-inflammatory compound, is also known to have anti-neoplastic and anti-carcinogenic benefits.
Curcumin is also found to help patients with arthritis, preventing and treating Alzheimer’s Disease, lower risk of heart disease, delay aging and age-related chronic diseases, and many more.
Always pair turmeric with black pepper. Curcumin, when consumed as is, is expelled quickly by the liver, without getting the chance to be absorbed into the blood stream.
The piperine in black pepper allows for proper absorption of curcumin by 2,000%.
This happens because the piperine dilates blood vessels for better, quicker, and more efficient absorption into the blood stream.
