Healing Powers of Turmeric
It is the curucumin in turmeric that contains the powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that it is famous for.
Curcumin has many scientifically-proven health benefits, such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer. It may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.
Adding fresh black pepper to your turmeric recipes enhances curcumin absorption in the body by up to 2,000%‼️
