Turmeric may help in recovery and performance of active people

Turmeric, a spice that has been recognized for its medicinal properties may help in the management of exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, thus enhancing recovery and subsequent performance of active people. In addition, a relatively low dose can provide health benefits for people that do not have diagnosed health conditions.
Ingesting curcumin by itself does not lead to the associated health benefits due to its poor bioavailability, which appears to be primarily due to poor absorption, rapid metabolism, and rapid elimination.
Piperine, the major active component of black pepper when combined in a complex with curcumin, has been shown to increase bioavailability by 2000%. Curcumin combined with enhancing agents provides multiple health benefits.
