Wonderfully bright and vibrant in colour, turmeric sits high on the antioxidant scale. It is well known for its anti inflammatory properties with studies indicating it may be helpful for sufferers of joint pain, thanks to its active compound curcumin. Black pepper contains the active ingredient pipeline, which is believed to enhance the absorption of curcumin.
