Best friends bring out the best in you right? That makes turmeric and black pepper epic BFF’s!
Numerous studies have found that curcumin, the natural compound found in turmeric root, can have a significant positive effect on neurological, cardiovascular, metabolic, immune system, and cellular health. Pretty awesome huh?!
But for all its amazing health benefits, turmeric does have one weakness. (don’t we all!?) The golden spice has very low bioavailability. This means that your body can only use a very small portion of the turmeric you consume. As the absorption levels of curcumin are very low, your body cannot harness the full healing properties of the spice. Fortunately, there is a simple way to enhance bioavailability.
Just add black pepper to unlock the full potential of turmeric. Taking turmeric with black pepper may boost its bioavailability up to an astonishing 2000%.
So add a crack of black pepper to your turmeric stir fry or your golden milk to watch these two beauties work their magic, together.
I’ll be back soon with more powerful synergistic food combos. After all, everyone needs a BFF to unlock their super powers- who brings out the best in YOU?
