Turmeric is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and powerful healing properties. This is because it contains Curcuminoids and these contain anti-inflammatories, anti-cancer and anti-tumor qualities along with powerful antioxidants that can prevent premature aging.
Curcumin can help with lowering body fat levels and avoiding inflammatory diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Pancreatitis and even certain forms of cancer.
The problem is that Curcumin has a low bioavailability and the body has a difficult time absorbing it. This means that they don’t get much out of the supplements they are taking. Consuming more of it is one option but a more simple option is to increase the bioavailability of Curcumin. This is possible by increasing certain items within the diet such as including black pepper when taking Curcumin.
