Mar 31, 2018 08:24PM
There are many ways to use turmeric to benefit one’s health. Turmeric extracts in tablet and capsule form are available in health food stores; aim for supercritical extracts in dosages of 400 to 600 mg, and take three times daily or as directed on the product. Another option is turmeric tea. An enjoyable way to eat turmeric is to include more curried dishes, either in restaurants or at home. Adding black pepper, which contains piperine, will increase absorption of the healthy compounds in turmeric. Whether one uses tablets or capsules, teas or food, adding turmeric to the diet is another way to optimize one’s health.
