Curcumin & Piperine: Synergistic Combination for Cancer, Rheumatoid Arthritis & Skin Diseases


Turmeric, the age old herb known for its culinary qualities, is also loaded with health promoting properties, and the benefits that date just as back. Also known by the name of Curcuma longa, Indian Saffron, haldi and haridra, turmeric primarily owes its therapeutic abilities to curcumin, an active compound known to cure a host of health problems, such as chronic pain, joints issues, liver diseases, digestive disorders, menstrual problems, bacterial wounds and infections, etc.

However, the consumption of whole turmeric is rather ineffective, and therefore, is it best consumed in its most raw or extracted form. Even then, turmeric alone has a much low absorption rate in our body, owing to its tendency to break down easily and get excreted out of our system sooner than we know. The varied therapeutic properties of curcumin can be made more potent and powerful when combined with certain other nutrients. One such substance is piperine - a key chemical extract of black pepper. For reasons galore, this natural substance is being used in a variety of traditional as well as modern medicines. It has the amazing ability to enhance the absorption rate of turmeric in our body, and hence, allows us to avail varied other health benefits, such as its effectiveness in curing rheumatoid arthritis and degenerative skin conditions.


Anti-carcinogenic effects of curcumin and piperine

Turmeric exhibits some strong and significant anti-carcinogenic properties, and research indicates that in countries where people include some amount of this spice in their everyday diet have shown much less symptoms of suffering from near-cancer symptoms. Let’s understand how.

  • The fact that this yellow pigmented derivative of turmeric, along with fellow curcuminoids is loaded with anti-oxidants, allows it to fight free radicals and various disease causing agents in our body.
  • It has the ability to kill the existing cancer cells in our body without harming any healthy cells, while also supporting the process known as apoptosis – which is another name for our body’s own ability to bring about a programmed death of certain harmful cells.
  • At the same time, turmeric also prevents the new cancer cells from growing in the first place.
  • Besides, its anti-inflammatory properties prevent the swelling associated with the growth of cancerous cells.
  • Turmeric makes the results of chemotherapy more effective and also prevents the healthy cells in our body from being exposed to various side effects of the radiation therapy. It is therefore being highly recommended by doctors across the world as not only a promising precancerous treatment, but also as a substance that complements and works in synergy with traditional means of treatment, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy and anti-carcinogenic drugs.

All these factors together make turmeric one of the most promising anti-cancer nutrients available in nature. Its effect is especially effective on cancers relating to stomach, skin, prostate, liver, lungs, colon, bowels and breasts among others of course.


Effectiveness in treating rheumatoid arthritis

For those who have severe chronic inflammatory health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, the combination of turmeric and piperine exhibits some incredible anti-inflammatory properties. This inhibits and slows down the activity of certain enzymes known to induce swelling. Piperine lends the combination its analgesic properties, and helps to reduce pain associated with arthritis by triggering TRPV1. The oral consumption as well as topical application of turmeric along with piperine is believed to be absolutely safe for long term.


An excellent supplement for skin

Turmeric in combination with Piperine is also known to aptly address a variety of chronic skin diseases, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. It not only helps keep our skin healthy, but also beautifies it from inside out.

  • It prevents various factors such as UV radiations, cytokines and stress from harming our skin.
  • It helps increase the formation of connective tissues and promotes blood flow.
  • It improves collagen production while getting rid of free radicals.
  • It improves blood circulation and heals various skin wounds such as dryness, rashes, swelling and/or irritation.
  • The presence of antioxidants prevents the premature signs of aging from occurring in the first place.

Turmeric, especially in combination with Piperine, therefore, is universally useful as a safe, natural pharmaceutical. Incorporating the recommended amount of turmeric in our everyday diet thus becomes an extremely good idea from preventive as well as curative point of view, with near to no side effects.
