Turmeric has proven to have “antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses”.
Turmeric’s benefits are largely pinned to curcumin, a potent antioxidant that dramatically reduces inflammation (while also giving the spice its vibrant yellow color). Curcumin inhibits the growth of tumor cells in a variety of cancers and improves insulin resistance in subjects with altered metabolic function. It’s bioavailability is low and increases dramatically when taken with black pepper, or fermented.

[How to take turmeric]
You can add turmeric in many dishes including salad, meat/fish marinades, curry and so on. It is important to take it with fat, as curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, is fat-soluble. This would improve the absorption. Also, eating it with long pepper or black pepper can improve the bioavailability. You can also make turmeric bugs by letting it ferment naturally with sugar, to make the most potent, healthy, fizzy drinks at home!
!!! If you want to truly benefit from turmeric, we strongly recommend taking encapsulated form of curcumin, PHYTOSOME CURCUMIN. Basically, taking turmeric powder is great if you want to maintain your health. However, if you are looking for cost-efficient way of reducing your inflammation (joint pain etc), turmeric powder is not enough. Read our blog for more information.
