Turmeric and Black Pepper
The rise in popularity of turmeric as a culinary ingredient due to it’s reported health benefits also brought to our attention the combination of turmeric and black pepper. In a study published on the NIH (National Institute of Health) website, piperine (active ingredient in black pepper) was shown to have a substantial effect on the bioavailability of curcumin (active ingredient in turmeric). This was one of the reasons we changed our Tantra and Mantra recipes and added black pepper to the ingredient list. We also have wellness shots loaded with lemon, turmeric and black pepper on our menu.
