13 Sep How to Optimally Reap Turmeric’s Amazing Health Benefits
In ancient times, turmeric was referred as “Indian saffron” as it served as a low cost alternative to the expensive saffron. It comes in its purest natural form as Turmeric fingers. Turmeric fingers bear an appearance quite similar to ginger which may be confusing at times. While turmeric has a vivid orange-yellow hue on its interior, ginger appears brownish from inside.
Besides the cost advantage mentioned above, turmeric has a long list of medicinal benefits to its name, the most vital ones being its ability to reduce inflammation, boosting brain health & antioxidant activity, easing joint pain, and potentially preventing cancer.
A compound found in turmeric, curcumin is responsible for all the health wonders the yellow-coloured spice brings along. But you may be surprised to know that only 3 percent curcumin is contained in turmeric by weight – which is way too less.
Moreover, the compound is absorbed quite poorly in human bloodstream which prevents gaining the optimum health benefits turmeric offers. Let’s now acquaint you with how you can boost the absorption to avail full benefits. Here we go!
The finest way to enhance curcumin absorption in blood stream is by pairing turmeric with black pepper and a healthy fat like olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil etc. without exceeding the healthy fat content. The reason behind it is the fat-soluble nature of curcumin which aids increased absorption. Additionally, the piperine contained in black pepper helps to significantly enhance the bioavailability of curcumin. So, that’s how you can make the maximum out of turmeric’s medicinal benefits.
