Turmeric (Curcuma longa) & Black Peppercorn
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) may be one of the best herbs for helping to promote a healthy resilience throughout the body. Our turmeric extract may help to maintain the optimal function of the immune system and overall well-being.*
Fun fact: there have been more studies done on turmeric than on any other herb!
Did you know that turmeric and black pepper are soul sisters of the herbal world? These two powerful plants may work synergistically to improve the body's ability to perform optimally, from the immune system to the detox pathways. Scientifically speaking, piperine, a significant chemical player found within black pepper, may serve to increase the bioavailability of the compounds contained within turmeric.
Curcumin is one of the important compounds offering turmeric its general health benefits. According to one study, "Curcumin bioavailability was increased by 2,000% at 45 minutes after co-administering curcumin orally with piperine." A 2000% difference in absorption is nothing to sneeze at!
As you can see, our very own locally, organically grown FRESH turmeric extract (it's worlds away from the dried stuff you see in capsules) is now made with peppercorn to enhance bioavailability.
We also recommend taking turmeric in conjunction with a fat of some kind, so try eating some nuts or seeds, a piece of buttered toast, some cheese, avocado, or some kind of other fatty food along with your turmeric extract.
