Health benefits

A relative of ginger, turmeric has been used in India for centuries to treat common colds, flu and breathing
difficulties. The curcumin in turmeric fights a variety of viruses. However turmeric contains only 3 percent curcumin. Therefore to derive the full benefit of its healing properties, you need to add pepper as it enhances curcumin absorption in the body by up to 2,000 percent.
