Turmeric has one of nature’s most potent active ingredients called curcumin, an ingredient that has countless health benefits.
Turmeric has antioxidant, antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
Black pepper has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties just like turmeric
Black pepper has properties that improve digestion, boosts metabolism, regulate nerve signals and control obesity.
Why do we have to mix pepper and turmeric?
Our body cannot use curcumin properly because of its poor bioavailability.
The component’s metabolism is pretty quick in the liver and intestinal walls. Only a small fraction of curcumin enters out bloodstream.
This is where black pepper plays an important role.
Piperine works by increasing membrane fluidity in your gut, making it easier for micronutrients to be absorbed into your body.
Piperine is an essential and highly healthy bioactive component that is present in both white and black pepper.
Consuming just 20mg of piperine per 2g of turmeric can increase curcumin absorption by up to 2000%.
Ginger is full of nutrients and bioactive compounds that are beneficial for your body and mind.
Paired with the active ingredients found in pepper, the powerful antioxidant properties work with the benefits of ginger to create an energising shot designed to kickstart your day.
Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and flavonoids, which are vital antioxidants that can help to improve collagen, digestion and more.
Evidence suggests that Vitamin C is known to also help the body produce extra collagen, which contributes to the integrity of the skin.
It helps with losing weight
Black pepper and turmeric enhance the process of burning fat and losing weight. Also, having a mixture of turmeric, black pepper and ginger in warm water early in the morning gives a boost to metabolism.
