Turmeric is extracted from the root of the Curcuma longa plant which grows in subtropical climates. The root is cut, dried and powdered for use as a food supplement. The active compound in Turmeric is called Curcumin. Turmeric is traditionally used in the Ayurvedic traditional health system, particularly in Asia where it is known as the 'warming plant' due to its warming effect such as stimulating appetite, helping digestion, relieving gas and supporting metabolism. Today, Turmeric is best known for its antioxidant properties, aiding the health of the liver, joints, bones and upper respiratory tract. Turmeric also helps to maintain cardiovascular health by supporting normal blood flow. Normally the absorption in the gut of curcumin is poor.
Black Pepper is colloquially known as the 'king of spices' because it is found in the majority of kitchen cupboards. Black Pepper originates from the berries of the Piper nigrum plant. Although the peppercorns are black, the berries are initially green before they are left to shrivel and develop flavour. Black Pepper has historically had many uses, including cooking and even as a currency. Piperine, one of the main compounds in black pepper, supports the digestive system and helps the absorption of curcumin.
