Turmeric is a root native to South Asia. The rhizome is often used in Asian cuisine as a spice. At first glance, turmeric strongly resembles ginger, but is bright yellow inside. The yellow spice has a digestive and analgesic effect, which is why turmeric is often recommended to patients suffering from osteoarthritis. Furthermore, the curcumin contained in turmeric is said to have antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.

Why you should combine turmeric with pepper
There is an excellent trick to getting the most out of the curcumin contained in turmeric. The reason why you should combine turmeric with pepper is that the piperine contained in black pepper increases the bioavailability of the curcumin. So you can get more out of it than if you eat turmeric without black pepper. The increased bioavailability of curcumin is due to the fact that piperine inhibits intestinal glucuronidation, which results in less curcumin being excreted. However, this can also lead to interactions with other active ingredients, such as medications. So if you are taking medication permanently, I recommend not combining turmeric with pepper, but taking it separately.
