Ancient Eastern religions are known for their ability to use healing herbs and extracts like turmeric and pepper to heal common and chronic ailments alike.
One of these common herbs is turmeric which is also used commonly to prepare dishes all over the world.
Turmeric has a bioactive ingredient known as curcumin that works in the body to bring about anti-inflammatory properties making it one of the most useful ingredients today.
Black pepper is also one of the most used food additives and comes with a list of benefits in the body thanks to its piperine extract ranging from weight loss to acting as an antioxidant.
These two have in the recent past been combined to create some of the most potent supplements in the body.
Curcumin in itself is a powerful agent but works slowly in the body due to the fact that it is not readily available when released in the body. It is, however, one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents working to reduce swellings in the kidneys, liver, heart and other parts of the body while boosting immunity.
It is for this reason that black pepper which contains piperine is introduced to it ensuring that better absorption qualities are created. Piperine increases the absorption of turmeric in the body by an unbelievable 2000 times making it much more available for use.
The fact that it is an accelerating agent does not mean that it does not come with its own set of advantages. These mentioned advantages also come alongside the ability to make turmeric bioavailable including helping with indigestion and dealing with free radicals that cause cancers in the body.
A combination of curcumin with black pepper extract is one of the most potent ways to deal with inflammatory disease in the body alongside many other benefits in the body.
The extracts are finally created in a capsular form that can be ingested with time depending on the dosage recommended by the manufacturer and the best part of this is that they are natural.
Natural supplements will rarely cause any side effects thanks to the fact that they are derived from natural products.
Turmeric and pepper extracts have provided long lost answers when it comes to pain-relieving remedies that emanate from inflamed parts of the body. It is for this reason that they are also used as pain relievers and anti-depressants.
Joints can be really painful especially when they get arthritis and a combination of these two extracts provides the much-needed relief and in most cases long-lasting healing effects.
