Turmeric: A potent spice packed with healing properties

Studies show that turmeric, the spice that gives curry its golden reddish hue, has powerful medicinal properties – something India has known for thousands of years. Curcumin, the primary active ingredient in turmeric, has potent anti-inflammatory effects and antioxidant properties. While there is some benefit used in recipe preparation, the best way to get all the benefits turmeric has to offer is in supplement form. Research recommends finding a product with BioPerine, the trademark name for Piperine (extracted from black pepper), which enhances curcumin absorption (otherwise curcumin passes through the digestive tract).
