Turmeric is the fastest growing health food around the world as millions of people are adding it to their diet for its health-promoting potential.
There have been over 5,000 peer reviewed studies on turmeric and 10,000 on its main compound Curcumin.
Before taking turmeric these are the 5 things you need to know
1.How much to take:The most common amount of turmeric recommended is 1 teaspoon full. This is what most health and nutrition experts advise and is also in line with the University of Maryland Medical Research Center's recommendation of 1-3g per day.
2.How often to take Turmeric:Curcumin the active compound in turmeric stays in your system for approximately 6-8 hours so it's important to split your daily dose throughout the day. Morning and evening work best.
3.Black pepper:Turmeric needs to be consumed with black pepper as it is not easily absorbed by your body. Curcumin is quickly metabolised and excreted by the liver before it has a chance to be absorbed and made available for your body to use. Piperine, a natural compound within black pepper helps to increase the absorption and bio-availability of curcumin by up to 2000%.
4.Eaten with Fat: The active compounds in turmeric are fat soluble so it's important that turmeric is taken with food. Fat soluble nutrients bind to fat before they can be absorbed through your digestive lining. Most meals are fine but taking turmeric with something very low in fat like a banana would not be effective.
5. Make sure your turmeric is high quality and pure: As turmeric has increased in popularity it is now in high demand and there are a lot of low-quality products that are not tested for purity and contain additives.
So, now you know you should be taking around a teaspoon of turmeric per day, split into two doses, mixed with black pepper and eaten with food to bind to the fats.
Sounds pretty easy?
If you absolutely love curry then you have no problems, one for breakfast and dinner will achieve this nicely. You can also add turmeric to whatever your meal is, you just need to be very creative when it comes to your preparation as turmeric doesn't go with everything and can get very repetitive quickly.
Lots of people simply don't have the time to prepare special turmeric recipes on a daily basis or it just doesn't fit with the foods they're eating. We're big fans of turmeric but so far we've not managed to find a breakfast it goes well with and even lunch is a struggle.
If this doesn't look like something you want to tackle everyday then keep on reading, we have the perfect solution for you.

THANK YOU! I love the Forest berry liquid, it is my new favourite guilt free treat. I've wanted to take turmeric for a long time but never really like the taste so this is a blessing for me. I notice the difference if I forget to take it one day.
Turmeric is great stuff, I have been using the capsules for 5 weeks now and I have nothing but good things to say. I will be a customer for life as turmeric is something we should all be taking but not enough people do. My whole family now takes these even my mother who is 92!
Thank you Turmeric Vitality. I have cooked with herbs for a long time but I always struggled taking enough, especially when things get busy. I now take a shot of berry turmeric in the morning and then capsules in the evening and I've not missed a day yet! Of all the foods and supplements I have taken nothing has been as effective as turmeric. Highly recommend.
Turmeric is now a permanent addition to my daily diet. I wish I discovered this amazing spice a long time ago. The idea of adding it to my food does not appeal to me so I'm very happy to have it in a capsule format and the combination of ingredients alongside turmeric is superb. You can smell the freshness and quality as soon as you open the bottle. Fantastic product!
