Why are they formulated together?
Turmeric and Black Pepper are the perfect supplementary match due to bioavailability. Simply put bioavailability means how much active ingredient is available for absorption.
Turmeric is reasonably well absorbed as a singular ingredient, but, by adding black pepper we can can greatly increase turmeric’s bioavailability to the body.
What are the health benefits of Turmeric and Black Pepper?
Black Pepper has its own fantastic health properties even without Turmeric. Black Pepper’s active compound is called piperine. Piperine is known to stimulate digestion thus improving efficiency and increasing nutrients absorbed. Piperine triggers the ‘cephalic phase’, also known as the chewing phase. This tells the brain that you’re eating and to prepare the stomach for food. The stomach reacts by producing gastric secretions in preparation to break down food and extract nutrients. Furthermore, black pepper has been shown to remove toxins, benefiting the health of the liver. Lastly, evidence shows that it encourages microvascular circulation to essential organs.
Turmeric and its active ingredient Curcumin is one of nature’s best natural remedies for numerous disorders. Curcumin has been used for thousands of years in Asian medicine for treating wounds, improving poor digestion, removing toxins from blood and reducing flatulence. In current alternative medicine it’s used for its potent anti-inflammatory effects within aching joints. Furthermore, it can be used to improve the health of the liver, respiratory system and digestive tract.

Extracts can be a tricky subject to get your head around. Simply put, they’re made by extracting natural herbs or botanicals through a process that only retains the helpful compound you need and excludes the unhelpful compounds, that do not have any health-giving properties. For example, the ‘helpful’ compound in Turmeric is curcumin, and for black pepper it’s piperine. Therefore, the extract is more concentrated than the raw product. This is indicated by a ratio ‘36:1’ or ‘5:1’. This means that 1g of extract is 36 times more potent than 1g of the raw product.
