If you like curry, spicy lattes and yellow soups, then you’re probably familiar with this flavour-filled spice. Turmeric is known for its yellow colour and distinct taste in popular dishes, but many people don’t know that it also brings a lot of health benefits to the table. In general, turmeric is known for having anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as it has a long history of use in eastern medicine.

There have been health claims surrounding turmeric and curcumin – the active ingredient in turmeric and what gives it its yellow colour – for years, but more studies on this age-old spice are being conducted every day. By ingesting turmeric regularly, recent studies suggest that these compounds may:

  • Ease osteoarthritis
  • Delay or reverse Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Prevent (or treat) diabetes
  • Act as a natural anti-inflammatory 
  • Protect your body from free radicals
  • Increase your antioxidant capacity 
  • Treat rheumatoid arthritis
  • Prevent (and potentially treat) cancer
  • Delay aging and fight chronic diseases
  • Help treat depression
  • Prevent eye degeneration
  • Lower your risk of heart disease

As if this wasn’t enough, turmeric can also benefit the body through external use. If applied topically – through say, lotions or soaps, – studies show that turmeric/curcumin can also:

  • Combat sun damage
  • Improve skin health
  • Soothe psoriasis
  • Treat scabies
  • Function as an anti-aging supplement
  • Brighten dark circles
  • Fade acne scarring
  • Prevent breakouts
  • Heal wounds
  • Add a natural glow

All of these benefits from just one spice! But here's the hiccup:

Curcumin is the compound responsible for many of these health benefits, but the bioavailability of turmeric is very low (aka, your body’s ability to use it). So, if you want to reap the benefits of turmeric, you need to increase your intake and ingest it properly. Studies have shown that turmeric is most beneficial for the body when paired with black peppercorn, as its compound piperine helps curcumin become bioavailable. By pairing these compounds together, you increase your curcumin absorption rate by 2000%!
