Turmeric has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that improve your body’s ability to fight free radicals, create a stronger UV shield for your skin, and stimulate your cells to function better, which is crucial for glowing skin.
PRO TIP: Add 3% black pepper to your turmeric to improve its bioavailability and enhance absorption. That makes smaller doses much more effective. Think: ½ tsp of ground black pepper to ¼ cup turmeric, etc.
