Turmeric is a super spice that’s been used in Asian cooking for generations. This nutritious and tasty ingredient also offers a range of health benefits. The most important element of turmeric is the compound curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and helps stop the production of free radicals.
Curcumin isn’t absorbed into the bloodstream very well, but one thing you can do is consume it with black pepper, which contains piperine, a substance that enhances curcumin absorption.
Turmeric is available in the Maitrihealth dispensary.
