Curcumin Highly Therapeutic When Combined With Black Pepper

Orlando, FL— April 07, 2016 — Today, more and more people are using natural alternatives such as turmeric, which is an ancient, medicinal spice. Turmeric contains a phytochemical called curcumin, which has now become available through supplementation. While curcumin is believed to offer a myriad of healing effects, its efficacy can be enhanced through the use of other natural ingredients.

Curcumin is thought to be highly therapeutic when combined with black pepper. Curcumin contains healing ingredients such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties. While it has very controversial healing abilities, it is also believed to have low bioavailability.

Being low-bioavailable, curcumin is metabolized before it is even absorbed inside the body. This means that the delivery of curcumin is also limited. Black pepper acting as bioavailability enhancing ingredient can enhance curcumin absorption.

Curcumin supplements are a popular remedy for a range of conditions. This natural alternative is even thought to be safer than some pharmaceutical drugs. Today, instead of adding turmeric powder in dishes or beverages, many people are obtaining the healing effects of curcumin through supplementation.

The most common consumers of pain relief drugs such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are arthritis sufferers. These people suffer from pain, inflammation, and immobility that hinder them from functioning and living a normal life.

Due to pain, arthritis sufferers use pain medications. Unfortunately, these pharmaceutical drugs are not only designed to provide temporary pain relief, but also produce side effects.

The widespread scare of the side effects associated with the use of the medications has encouraged many sufferers to resort to natural remedies. Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient, and is thought to be a safer alternative to pain relief drugs.

There are many curcumin supplements available nowadays. Experts recommend that consumers should choose the ones that do not only contain curcumin but also black pepper extract.

Ina study, it was found that when curcumin was combined with 20mg piperine, its bioavailability sky-rocketed by 2000 percent. Piperine is a key ingredient of black pepper, and is also thought to have healing properties.

Piperine also has the potential ability to reduce pain by trigger TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid type-1) inside the body. This makes the combination of curcumin and black pepper a better alternative to pain relief drugs.

The dramatic increase has led researchers to suggest that black pepper can be an excellent add-on to curcumin supplements. There are supplements that do not only contain curcumin but also a black pepper extract called BioPerine. Consumers should look for supplements with these two ingredients for best results (
