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.

Active ingredients in our Curcumin supplements
Curcumin C3 complex®
Very high curcumin content (95%). Curcumin gives turmeric its bright, yellow color.
A component of black pepper that, among other things, provides the spicy taste of this spice. Makes curcumin more absorbable.
The effect of pepper on the absorption of curcumin
If you eat regular turmeric, the curcumin will be visible in your blood after a few hours. However, the amounts are small, as your liver gets to work breaking down the curcumin. Do you combine eating turmeric with pepper? Then the values of curcumin in your blood skyrocket, because the substance Bioperine® in black pepper inhibits the breakdown process.
Turmeric and Bioperine®: not for everyone!
Both turmeric and Bioperine® can affect the way your body absorbs medicines. Do you use medication? Always consult an expert before you start using a supplement.
