Turmeric and Black Pepper

Also known as: Piper nigrum, Curcuma longa

Turmeric has poor bioavailability when consumed alone due to its hydrophobic nature which leads it to clump together with other compounds in the digestive system too early before being absorbed. Black pepper extract called piperine, a natural compound found in black pepper, is both fat and water soluble which makes it perfect for this job as turmeric is hydrophobic. It also decreases how long it takes to digest food and increases nutrient uptake of curcuminoids (the main biologically active ingredient in turmeric).
