Why are black pepper and turmeric in LeafSide’s meals?

Thank you for your question! We appreciate that everyone has different taste preferences, so we do our best to offer a diverse range of meals to accommodate as many people as possible.

As you may know, our meals are based on Dr. Greger’s nutritional guidelines. He has several resources that discuss how black pepper and turmeric work together to increase the availability of curcumin (the anti-inflammatory yellow pigment in turmeric) in the bloodstream, which is why we include black pepper in many of our recipes. It is often a very small amount as it doesn’t take much for the desired effect.

We hope you’ll find this video to be helpful in explaining this further: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-the-bioavailability-of-curcumin/
