Turmeric and pepper: a golden combination
In Indian cuisine, many dishes contain turmeric and pepper and in this country a number of diseases that we often encounter in the Western World are almost non-existent. Coincidence, or by a golden combination?
The spice turmeric gets its yellow color from curcumin, and this powerful antioxidant has been linked to a variety of health benefits. When you eat curcumin, only a small amount gets into your blood. Your liver breaks down curcumin.
