The main active ingredient in Turmeric is curcumin, a powerful natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound with many therapeutic effects. Turmeric is often chosen by arthritis sufferers to mitigate the pain and swelling caused by inflammation in the joints.
As well as being one of the most potent anti-inflammatories and antioxidants available, curcumin also boosts levels of the brain protein BDNF which increases the growth of new neurons and may help fight degenerative processes in the brain.
Piperine, a compound contained in Black Pepper, has been shown to significantly aid the absorption of curcumin in the body by up to 2000%, so a supplement containing both is highly recommended to achieve the best results.
Our Turmeric and Black Pepper comes from India and is certified Organic and approved by the Soil Association of Great Britain.
