Turmeric and Black Pepper are cleverly formulated together in one tablet to achieve the benefits of both ingredients, mainly their anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and digestive properties.
Turmeric is extracted from the root of the Curcuma longa plant which grows in sub-tropical climates. The root is cut, dried and powdered for medicinal use which provides access to the active compound, Curcuma. Turmeric is traditionally used in therapeutic medicines to treat sores and heal wounds, particularly in Asia where it is known as the 'warming plant' due to its warming effect such as improving digestion and relieving gas. Today, Turmeric is best known for its antioxidant properties, aiding the health of the liver, joints, bones and upper respiratory tract. Turmeric also aids cardiovascular health by promoting normal blood flow. In addition, the root maintains appetite and settles feelings of discomfort within the gut.
Black Pepper is colloquially known as the 'king of spices' because it is found in the majority of kitchen cupboards. Black Pepper originates from the berries of the Piper nigrum plant. Although the peppercorns are black, the berries are initially green before they are left to shrivel and develop flavour. Black Pepper has historically had many uses, including cooking, medicine and even as a currency. Black Pepper is believed to aid digestion as the food stimulates our taste buds, alerting our stomach to the arrival of food. This causes an increased volume of gastric secretion which aids digestion. As a result, Black Pepper is well known for its ability to help increase the absorption of nutrients and control body weight. Furthermore, Black Pepper stimulates toxin removal, cleaning of the liver and blood circulation through fine blood vessels and capillaries.
