But there is one thing you should pay attention at !
Curcumin has a low bioavailability.
What Does It Mean?
To say it more simply, bioavailability is the measure of how much we absorb into our bodies. Furthermore, if curcumin has low level of bioavailability then our bodies do not get all that it has to offer. Because of this, should we eat more of it? The answer is no.
We need to find a solution and the right way to increase the curcumin’s bioavailability. You should use these following tricks :
1. A Little Fresh Black Pepper?
Black pepper has got medicinal properties and added to turmeric it measurably increases the effect that turmeric, especially curcumin has on our health. Recent studies have discovered that when people eat turmeric there is a slight fall of curcumoids. But when we add black pepper into our food the level of curcumoids rise.
“The same amount of curcumin is consumed, but the bioavailability rises to 2000%. With a just a bit of pepper—1/20th of a teaspoon—can significantly rise levels,” says Michael Greger, M.D. a physician, author, and professional speaker on public health.
