The power of Turmeric seems to be rather extraordinary and the list of benefits keeps growing and growing. In laboratory tests, turmeric has inhibited the spread of HIV. I have personally heard stories from people healing their melanoma by applying turmeric and Aloe Vera gel to the affected area, covering it for 3 days and it being gone. I had a gentlemen tell me his story of how he cured his colon cancer and he believes the turmeric played a big role in it as well as healthier changes to his diet. My Grandfather was told he needed a hip replacement, he suffers from arthritis as well and was taking the prescription Celebrex for pain. After looking into the side effects of this medication, he no longer wanted to take it. I discovered the benefits of Turmeric and told my Grandfather about it. He started taking Turmeric and was amazed! A year later, no hip replacement, no pain. I want to point this out because a lot of people are not aware of this:
*Black pepper enhances bioavailability of Turmeric*
This will help increase the amount of Curcumin absorbed by the body!
Piperine is the key chemical in black pepper which can also reduce pain.
