Potential Health Benefits
Several compounds in turmeric may support your health, the most well-known of these is curcumin. Turmeric can help fight inflammation and keep blood sugar levels steady. In addition, curcumin might help you to fight off a variety of viruses and the flu; help ease PMS symptoms; bring relief from menstrual cramps; and ease joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation.
Further, turmeric, black pepper and ginger is a powerful combination. Research has showed that combining the piperine in black pepper with the curcumin in turmeric enhances curcumin absorption by up to 2,000%. The anti-inflammatory properties of both turmeric and black pepper may aid in reducing gut inflammation, which can help with digestion.

ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
Scientific research has shown that turmeric has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory activities and also has a potential to reduce the risk of various malignant diseases, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illness including rheumatoid arthritis. Studies have shown that curcumin, the major phenolic compound present in turmeric, is particularly effective at reducing the risk of colon, skin, oral, and intestinal cancer and has excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin is very effective at scavenging peroxyl radicals. Further studies have showed that curcumin and many of its carbocyclic analogs have excellent free radical scavenging properties, but curcumin is probably the strongest antioxidant present in turmeric.
