Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It is a very strong antioxidant.

Because curcumin is fat-soluble, consuming it with fat may increase absorption.

Turmeric is also best consumed with black pepper.

The liver gets rid of substances by making them water-soluble so that they can be excreted, and piperine (from black pepper) can inhibit this process so that curcumin is not excreted. This explains how piperine can help to make curcumin more bioavailable.

Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger, and while it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry.

It also adds a nice dose of nutrients, color, and earthly flavor to smoothies.
