To get the most healing benefit from turmeric you should always combine it with ground black pepper. Eaten alone, turmeric is very poorly absorbed, yet when combining with black pepper the absorption of turmeric is enhanced a thousand times.
Call to Action:
When eating a salad, combine 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of turmeric and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Also a small amount of olive oil (1 Tbsp) further enhances absorption.
To your wellness,
