Good to Know
- Turmeric is not efficiently absorbed by the body unless taken with black pepper to increase its bioavailability. SOURCE
- Use Turmeric & Black Pepper Power Blend with a fat to boost absorption even more. Bonus! This blend is packaged with a 10ml bottle of Organic Rosehip Seed Carrier Oil, a lovely fat.
- If you're going to take this supplement internally expect a spicy taste, it's not hot per se but it has a strong flavor.
- Our Organic Turmeric CO2 Extract is very yellow and may stain clothing. It will also stain skin temporarily however, very lightly after it's been diluted by 50%
- Dilute. I get my best results using 1 part Turmeric & Black Pepper Power Blend to 1 part carrier oil (organic rosehip seed carrier oil is my favorite!) See available KIT with roller top bottle & rosehip seed oil included.
- Apply topically to areas of discomfort - I like the control of a roller bottle application!
- Internal - 1 drop in a smoothie, oil pulling (wonderful herb for oral health!) or, in a spoonful of honey
Test patch on your skin is always recommended.
