Turmeric and Black Pepper - What's The Connection?

Updated: Aug 2, 2023

Turmeric and Black Pepper

Many of us know turmeric is the most powerful anti-inflammatory spice on the planet, but few know that our liver gets rid of curcumin very quickly. So, turmeric and black pepper - what's the connection?

Curcumin is the antioxidant that makes turmeric so powerful. The trick here is to add a small amount of black pepper when you use turmeric in your cooking.

If you want to take a curcumin supplement, buy the product with a small amount of added Piperine as one of the ingredients because piperine increases curcumin’s bioavailability by 2,000%!
