Anti-inflammatory – Turmeric

Curcumin is that “miracle compound” found in the golden-coloured root turmeric. Boasting 1000s of positive studies, this compound is constantly surprising researchers by the extent of its anti-inflammatory abilities–most notably its effect on arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Curcumin is about 10 times more potent and effective when it’s consumed with black pepper (thanks to a compound called piperine) or a healthy fat source.
