Turmeric root has long been known to work as a healer with problems ranging from stomach aches to depression. Curcumin, turmeric’s essential compound, is highly efficient when used in the reduction of various inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Some studies suggest that curcumin is useful for preventing Alzheimer’s disease, ulcers, skin diseases, and disorders of cholesterol.
In this article I will describe a way to improve the effectiveness of turmeric up to 2000% with only one extra ingredient. Black pepper is the answer. Turmeric when combined with black pepper can provide a very large good effect. You can use this combination in a variety of vegetables and soups that can be consumed every day.
How the black pepper works
A study by Planta Medica concluded that the alkaloid content in black pepper can increase the effectiveness of turmeric to 2000%. Alkaloid responsible for this increasing is piperine. Curcumin has a weakness in the bio-availability and requires additional components, in this case filled with piperine.
Piperine is able to enhance the digestive capacity and significantly reduce transit time of food in the gut.
What we can conclude is the benefits of curcumin can be obtained optimally with the help of piperine.
Piperine curcumin slows the metabolism and at the same time improves the capacity of human digestion, thereby increasing the effectiveness of turmeric to 2000%.
