How to enhance curcumin absorption As the curcumin in turmeric is fat-soluble, i.e. it needs some fat to get absorbed; I also add coconut milk to the recipe. To maximize the absorption, consume it with black pepper. Should you want to enhance the absorption even further, mix it with foods that contain quercetin, a flavonoid that inhibits a certain enzyme that deactivates curcumin. Such foods include fruits and berries with a dark red or blue color, e.g. red grapes (also red wine), blueberries, cranberries and black plums. (2) One study also found that vitamin C made curcumin much more effective, hence the lemon juice. (3) Cinnamon Studies have shown that cinnamon has powerful antifungal properties. Furthermore, the antioxidants in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory effects. (4) Ginger Ginger helps with digestion, inflammation, and immunity. Furthermore, it can be used as antifungal medicine. (5) Cloves Cloves have powerful anti-fungal properties. NB! Cloves are a powerful spice and should not be taken in large quantities. If consumed in excessive amounts, especially in undiluted oil, the following side effects may be experienced: vomiting, sore throat, seizure, sedation, difficulty breathing, hematemesis, kidney failure, liver damage, erectile dysfunction, problems with ejaculation, stomach irritation. (6) Lemon juice, coconut milk and black pepper Those are added mostly to enhance curcumin absorption. However, coconut alone is also effective against Candida yeast as it contains 3 different fatty acids (Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, Lauric Acid). (7) Garlic Can boost immune function and prevent colds and the flu. (8) Furthermore, garlic also has antifungal properties. Warning: Concentrated garlic can interact with other medicines, so consult a health professional before taking any supplements. Garlic has a blood-thinning property that can be a danger to sufferers of hemophilia or platelet disorders, as well as pregnant women or patients about to undergo surgery. Other side effects from garlic: upset stomach, bloating, bad breath, body odor, and a stinging sensation on the skin from handling too much fresh or dried garlic. Side effects of garlic supplements: headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle aches, dizziness described as vertigo (namely, the room spinning), and allergies such as an asthmatic reaction or contact dermatitis (skin rash). (9) How often do I take it? I personally take this shot three times a day if I’m doing antifungal treatment or if I’m feeling that I might go down with something or already am sick. At other times I mix the shot once a day as preventive measure. How does it taste? I find it very palatable, as it’s spicy and sweet at the same time. When I mix in some carob, it can replace a small dessert. If you make it thicker, it might as well be something like a bliss ball or a raw candy (without the garlic of course).
