This warming spice can also be added to soups, stews, casseroles, dips, rice, vegetables, tofu, cheese sauce, hummus, pancakes and even smoothies. Even better, brew yourself a creamy turmeric latte with MCT Powder and a tablespoon of Collagen for the ultimate health-boosting drink. Or, if you’re short on time and prefer to keep it simple, you can take it as a supplement in the form of SPICE.
But wait! To get maximum benefits from curcumin, pair it with its best friend – black pepper. Our bodies don't readily absorb most of the curcumin in turmeric, but when paired with black pepper, turmeric's health benefits get a serious upgrade. Piperine, a compound found in black pepper, boosts the absorption of curcumin by up to 2000%! So, if you’re cooking with turmeric, make sure to add a sprinkle of black pepper to boost its effectiveness.
