The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin – which is a powerful and very potent anti-inflammatory agent. The western diet is very high in things that cause inflammation, like alcohol, sugars, and processed foods. Doctors say that chronic inflammation is called the
‘silent killer' - eating turmeric will help you prevent inflammation and keep you healthier.
When we have chronic inflammation in our bodies, our joints get swollen and we loose mobility and have pain, the active ingredient curcumin helps to reduce the swelling in our joints.
Chronic stress, is also known as ‘oxidative stress,’ researches have found that oxidative stress makes our cholesterol go higher and because turmeric is anti-inflammatory it reduces chronic inflammation and reduces oxidative stress and therefore promotes healthy cholesterol levels.

Turmeric can stimulate the gallbladder which produces bile and helps you break down food and therefore aids in better digestion.Traditionally black turmeric was ground into a paste and taken mixed in warm water, to relieve gastric stress.
How to take turmeric
Ways to eat turmeric in order to help the body absorb the beneficial compound: curcumin
1. Add black pepper
Black pepper is high in a compound called piperine
that slows down the absorption of curcumin and therefore increases the absorption of the turmeric which gives you all the health anti-inflammatory benefits.
2. Add a good healthy fat
Turmeric is fat soluble, so if you eat it without a fat binding to the turmeric. It struggles to make it to your liver and stomach without being absorbed prematurely.
You can eat it with a heart healthy fat such as avocado, or coconut oil to increase your absorption and get all the anti-inflammatory benefits.
3. Make your own pre-activated turmeric paste
Simmer turmeric with water and a pinch of black pepper
on a stove, add coconut oil over medium low heat, whisk and combine until it forms a paste, and the coconut is fully melted. Heat no longer than 15 minutes. Transfer it into a jar and store it for later use, in turmeric milk, curries, and smoothies.
