7 Anti-Inflammatory Recipes with Turmeric and Black Pepper

Turmeric, also known as the golden spice, is a tall plant that grows in Asia and Central America. It has been used in traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) for thousands of years to treat various health conditions, thanks to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and soothing properties. However, when coupled with black pepper, the effects can be greatly enhanced!

 

Why combine turmeric with black pepper?

The disadvantage of turmeric is its low bioavailability, so if you want to treat yourself with it, you need to consume large quantities. Turmeric and black pepper are a frequently recommended combination to increase the assimilation of curcumin (the nutritional component in turmeric) by the body. More specifically, piperine (an active ingredient in pepper) helps increase the bioavailability of curcumin. This is why, in Ayurvedic traditions, turmeric is mainly associated with other spices, and systematically with pepper.

 

Chez SANNA we believe in the power of spices, and know that the most benefits come from the spices harvested organically, ethically, and sustainably. This is why we are proud to showcase Diaspora Co. spices on our site, an Indian spice company that proudly pays their farm partners an average of 6x more than the commodity price in an effort to decolonize the commodities back into seasonal crops and to turn a broken system into an equal exchange.

 

To make the following recipes, we recommend using Pragati Turmeric, with a content of up to 5.2% curcumin, and the Aryana pepper, grown on the family farm in Parameswaran, Kerala, for over 35 years.
