This golden root is a cousin to ginger and has a long history of traditional use in Chinese and Indian (Ayurvedic) medicine. Curcumin acts as a master switch of inflammation literally blocking and interfering with the inflammatory response pathways in the body and offering a protective effect. The principal curcuminoid found in turmeric is curcumin and it is considered as the most active constituent. Curcumin is broken down in the intestines and the liver.
Curcumin's anti-inflammatory effects can be felt through a daily, therapeutic dose. To maximise absorption, it is beneficial to consume black pepper alongside it, as contains a powerful substance known as piperine. Curcumin is also fat-soluble, meaning you can increase its absorption by consuming it alongside fatty foods. This includes foods such as olive oil, nuts, avocado or ghee.
