Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. I’ve seen (and experienced) the relief it brings to all sorts of aches and pains, arthritis, and post-surgical discomfort. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, needs a bit of black pepper and oil to be absorbed best by the body, hence this recipe, which I find much more effective than taking it in capsule form. One daily cup of this deliciousness works better than any otc meds I’ve tried, and is much kinder to the body.
