How to Consume Turmeric

Turmeric is all over the news lately and the health benefits for body and soul have been scientifically proven, but how do you best consume turmeric to maximise its benefits for you? Is it best eaten on its own or with other foods? If yes, which foods will work best?

So, what's the best way to eat turmeric?

Turmeric is a very old spice and has been eaten for centuries in India and other Asian countries, but in the kitchens of the Western world we do not really know much about it. Until now! Research shows that turmeric, is very poorly absorbed by the body and is literally passed straight back out again.

However, there are tricks around it! When turmeric is eaten with pepper, the pepper compound piperine blocks the fast metabolisation of the active ingredient curcumin in organs such as liver and gut and literally boosts the levels of curcumin absorbed into our bloodstream.

You see, turmeric is a complex food that contains about 235 components that scientists have discovered to be health beneficial and health-promoting. Once curcumin has entered our bloodstream it then can reach our cells and do its magic.

Furthermore, curcumin is soluble in fat, we recommend using coconut oil for additional health benefits, and when eaten with fat it also follows the same pathways into the body and its bioavailability is greatly increased. As with most food, the organic version is more often than not the superior option and with our range of turmeric you can choose from various Australian brands and packs in different sizes.

Enjoy and good health!
