Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. In addition, this spice contains plenty of vitamin C, which can boost the immune system and is a good source of manganese, iron, and potassium.
Unfortunately, curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. It helps to consume black pepper with it, which contains piperine, a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin. Also cooking with fat such as coconut oil or ghee, or mixing it with your drink will optimize the body absorption of curcumin in the gut.
Some people claim that putting a turmeric mask on their skin or eating turmeric will help fight stubborn pimples, perhaps because of the spice's reported antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
The next time you're under the weather, you may want to sip some turmeric tea. Curcumin might help you to fight off a variety of viruses, and the flu.
