Turmeric is literally one of the most powerful spices you can use when cooking and one of the top best supplements you can take for your health. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral superherb that can protect your body from all kinds of disease, including chronic pain, heart-disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and depression.
But are you taking turmeric the right way?
It is important for you to know that it is not enough to simply take your turmeric supplements, you have to take them in the right way. You see, there is a difference between simple consumption and full-absorption.
Turmeric is a fat-soluble herb. This means that turmeric dissolves in fat and, without fats, it has a difficult time making it past your stomach and into your bloodstream.
To experience the full benefits this spice has to offer, you want to make sure that you take it with a bit of fat.
When cooking with turmeric - for example, making curry - it is important to use some form of oil in your recipe. Coconut oil is usually an excellent choice as it is anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial and very remedying.
When drinking turmeric in the form of the popular golder milk, the coconut milk and/or coconut oil in the recipe can help with proper absorption.
If you are taking turmeric in the form of a supplement, such as Organifi Daily Turmeric, it is necessary to take it with some food or drink that includes some fat. A bit of avocado in your salads, coconut oil in your dishes, tahini on your veggies, or a spoonful of raw nut butter can do the trick. Make sure you choose healthy fats, such as avocado, coconut oil, raw nuts and seeds and avoid fats from animal products for the most part.
Bonus tip: black pepper actually enhances the bioavailability of turmeric by 1000 times. For bonus benefits take it with some black pepper. Just sprinkle some on your salads or dishes when you are taking your supplement.
