We are very excited to announce our new product from Nutrient Nirvana : Turmeric and Black Pepper in capsule form! Turmeric, also known as the golden spice, has been used in Indian (Ayurvedic) traditional medicine for thousands of years to treat many health conditions as well as preserve a healthy state in the body. Turmeric has earned an excellent reputation over the last few decades for its ability to prevent and treat cancer and this is due to its most active ingredient : curcumin.
Curcumin holds many properties that promote health in the body. It's anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and even anti-fungal! However, its only downfall is that it's not very well absorbed in the body. And this is why we've added black pepper into the mix.
Piperine is the bioactive compound in black pepper that has the ability to make curcumin much more absorbable in the body (up to 2000% more absorbable). It makes it easier for curcumin to pass through the intestinal wall and recent studies have shown that piperine slows down the breakdown of curcumin in the liver, thereby increasing its levels in the blood. We at NN strongly believe after much research that our Turmeric and Black Pepper capsules have the perfect ratio to ensure maximum benefit from the curcumin.
Curcumin's anti-inflammatory properties are so strong that it can easily match the effects of anti-inflammatory drugs, but, crucially, without the negative side effects. Both curcumin and piperine combined are a powerful inflammation-fighting duo that can reduce pain, particularly in conditions like arthritis. Test tube studies have shown that curcumin can decrease the growth, development and spread of cancer!
Curcumin and piperine are considered totally safe, but it may be possible to experience side effects like nausea and headaches if taking very large doses. We recommend taking curcumin and piperine in supplement form for maximum effect.
Here's a list of just some of the benefits associated with combining Turmeric and black pepper :
*Protects the liver.
*Eases stiffness and soreness.
*Boosts the immune system.
*Improves memory and cognitive function.
*Relieves peptic ulcers and gastric damage.
*Helps prevent neurological disorders.
