Turmeric is a potent medicinal herb. If you ingest it directly from your mouth, your body will not be able to absorb its nutrients fully. This is due to the fast metabolism within the walls of our intestine and in the liver.
Black pepper is capable of increasing absorption of curcumin by up to 200 percent. So the combination is going to help in protecting your body against infections, cancers and inflammations.
Powerful anti-cancer combination – According to a number of studies (performed some time ago), piperine (the active ingredient in black pepper) is capable of making curcumin (active ingredient in turmeric) a thousand times more readily absorbable for our body.
