Want to stay healthy? Turn to Turmeric with Black Pepper for Anti-inflammation. Turmeric powder which is an important spice in most Indian spice box should be included daily in our diet.

The compound ‘curcumin’ in it serves the purpose of preventing inflammation in the body and helping you go healthy a long way.

But there is a catch. Curcumin is easily metabolized in the body and so not much is available for absorption. Freshly ground black pepper shows its magical touch here. It abounds in a compound ‘piperine’ which prevents the curcumin from being metabolized easily and enhances its absorption in body.

Curcumin also needs some kind of fat for its absorption. So turn to healthy fats like ghee or olive oil.

1 serving of Turmeric with Black Pepper for Anti-inflammation at least 3 to 4 times a week is recommended.

Why the Turmeric with Black Pepper Combo?

  1. Turmeric powder is a spice known for its health benefits since ages in Ayurveda. It’s the compound ‘curcumin’ in turmeric which possess the so-called nutritional attributes. However curcumin is poorly absorbed in the body as it is easily metabolized. 
  2. Thus its combination with black pepper came into limelight. Freshly ground black pepper contains a compound viz. ‘piperine’ which inhibits the metabolism of curcumin and thus makes more of curcumin available to the body. Thus piperine increases the amount of curcumin being absorbed in the body too. 
  3. What more? You also need to add a dose of fat in this combo, as curcumin is fat-soluble and is absorbed the most in presence of a fat like ghee or coconut oil or olive oil. 

Ratio of Turmeric Powder to Black Pepper

  1. There is no specific ratio of turmeric powder to black pepper to be consumed in reality. It is said that the average content of curcumin in turmeric ranges from 4-7% and average content of piperine in black pepper ranges from 2-7%. A ratio of 100:1 of curcumin to piperine is recommended. However this quantity seems to be very small. Since it is difficult to get perfect ratios of these bioactive compounds, to make it simpler it is said that even 1/20th of pepper powder is enough to increase the bioavailability of curcumin from turmeric powder. This means that 1 tsp of turmeric powder (2 g) can be combined with 1/8th tsp of freshly ground black pepper powder (250 mg).
