Therefore, it can help you treat numerous conditions and improve your overall health. This is how to make your own turmeric supplements:
For best results, make sure you use high-quality turmeric in a form that optimizes the absorption of curcumin. You should add some turmeric powder in a tablespoon of raw organic honey and mix it until it is thick enough to create a paste that will be rolled into balls.
Then, add some freshly ground black pepper, which will improve the bioavailability of curcumin. Namely, research has shown that piperine, a compound in black pepper is able to make curcumin 1,000 times more bio-available.
Then, take pinches of the mixture, and roll them into small balls and form the capsules. Leave them for a few days to dry out, and take two or three of them on a daily basis.
