Turmeric and Black Pepper – A Miracle Combination?

You often see Turmeric mixed with Black Pepper when put into capsules and you may wonder why?

While both are powerful medicinally separately when combined they are a powerhouse. Here is why…

Black Pepper Benefits:

Helps to ease cold and cough

Boost weight loss efforts

Helps improve skin texture

Stimulates the brain promoting relief of depression

Turmeric Benefits:

May be helpful in treating Alzheimer’s disease

Supports Arthritis easement

Helps fight depression

Helps suppress aging and age-related diseases

As you can easily see either added to your daily regimen or diet can be incredibly healthful. Now let’s look at what happens when taken in conjunction.

Black Pepper & Turmeric Combined

When you take turmeric combined with black pepper, you are increasing the amount of the curcumin (a molecule in turmeric) that you can absorb increasing usability. Curcumin has been studied and noted to have numerous health benefits including anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant, protecting healthy cells from free radicals which can cause damage.

The Real Trick To Maximizing Benefits of Turmeric

It is helpful to take turmeric either alone or with black pepper with a meal containing healthy fats or oils (Avocado, Olives, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Nuts, etc) as well to further increase the potency and bioavailability.

If you suffer from joint pain, stiffness, arthritis pain, the stubborn weight that won’t come off, or digestion issues, give this combination a try. You should notice a difference within a few weeks of consistently taking Turmeric and Black Pepper. While it isn’t a miracle, it sure does help.
