Turmeric's antibacterial properties is one of the best ways it works to help us build robust immunity. It's also well known in its ability to reduce inflammation and contribute powerful antioxidants, namely curcumin.
Curcumin is the primary compound found in turmeric, responsible for its orange colour. It has been clinically shown to reduce inflammation and fight the formation and progression of cancer and tumours. A powerful antioxidant, curcumin not only neutralises free radicals, which have shown to be a cause many diseases and premature ageing – but also stimulates your body’s production of antioxidant enzymes. When taken in the morning with or prior to breakfast it stimulates digestion, assisting health weight loss.
Piperine, found in black pepper, is essential when using turmeric for health because it enhances curcumin absorption by 2,000%—without piperine most of the curcumin just passes through your digestive tract.
