2. Fats

Of course, if pepper just isn’t your thing, you can also use fat as a means of making your supplement more available for your body to use. Turmeric is a fat soluble compound which means that it “piggybacks” on fat molecules to make its way through the body. You can add freshly ground turmeric into healthy fats such as your meat sauces, salad dressings, and dips. Or you can consume your supplement with a fatty meal or just drink a glass of milk to wash down that capsule and your body will soak up that curcumin along with the fat!

 

3. Heat Things Up!

Another great way to get that turmeric into your body is to heat things up a little. Just adding a half a teaspoon to any cooked dish, such as soups, casseroles, sauces, meat, or rice will give you all the curcuminoids your body can stand and then some! The moment you heat up that food and add turmeric to it, it instantly becomes bioavailable to the body.
