American doctor Carolyn Anderson found a very simple recipe which can prevent the appearance of cancer. It is about a mixture of three highly available ingredients. These findings of Dr. Anderson are based on East Indian tradition which is 2000 years old.

Health Benefits of Black Pepper and Turmeric


Curcumin and other curcuminoids (key which are chemical compounds in turmeric) offer numerous health benefits since they are powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial agents. It is a popular ingredient in Ayurvedic medicine.

Today, turmeric supplements are also available. They are generally available as capsules, tincture or liquid extracts.

Black Pepper

Peppercorns which are got from the piper nigrum evergreen vine give us black, green and white peppercorns. To make black pepper, the peppercorns must be plucked just before ripening, left to ferment and then dried until they shrivel and turn black. Most of the world’s supply of black pepper comes from India. Apart from being used to season food, black pepper is also used for medicinal purposes.

Piperine is the key chemical in black pepper. It is similar to capsaicin a chemical in chili and offers many health benefits. Curcumin which is a polyphenol plays the same role in turmeric.

Both these compounds have been studied to examine the potential health benefits they can offer individually or together.

Turmeric, Black Pepper and Olive Oil


Most of the curcumin that is ingested gets metabolized before it can get absorbed. Piperine is said to help make curcumin more bioavailable. This could be because it could inhibit certain intestinal digestive enzymes. This increases the amount of any drug or supplement that can be absorbed by the body. They also do not get degraded quickly.

There are studies to test if co-administering curcumin with piperine could improve the bioavailability of the former. These studies have been conducted on humans and laboratory animals.

One study found that when even 2g of curcumin was ingested, its serum levels were very low. However, when 20mg piperine was added to curcumin the bioavailability increased by 2000%.

The bioavailability, serum levels and levels of absorption of curcumin all improved dramatically.

Help in reducing pain

 Piperine in black pepper can trigger TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid type-1) in the body. This triggering can reduce pain.

Piperine is also used as an analgesic cream that can be applied topically on the skin to relieve pain.

Some studies have focused on using piperine as a new way to kill chronic pain – especially neuropathic pain which is untreatable.

Anti-Inflammatory Benefits

Curcumin has been studied for its anti-inflammatory capabilities especially in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory conditions.

Laboratory studies were conducted on the way curcumin can be used as an anti-arthritic agent. An animal model of rheumatoid arthritis was used and 3 curcuminoids were studied.

The curcuminoids were administered before and not after inflammation set in. It was found that oil-depleted turmeric fraction was not as effective as a commercial composition that contained 94% combination of the 3 curcuminoids in combating inflammatory conditions.

Curcumin are being studied for their potential anti-inflammatory benefits that can be used long term without any side effects.

Anti-Cancer Benefits

 Dietary polyphenols like piperine and curcumin have been studied for their effect on prevention of breast cancer.

Early progenitor cells, normal stem cells and healthy breast epithelial cells were examined after control, piperine and curcumin treatment was administered.

Turmeric and black pepper compounds both inhibited Mammosphere formation (mammosphere formation is a marker of breast stem cells).  They also did not cause any toxicity, therefore showing that they could be possible cancer preventive agents.

Studies have found that turmeric and black pepper combined could target breast stem cells.

In a University of Michigan study, cancer cells were injected with a potent solution of piperine and curcumin that was at least 20 times stronger than what is normally consumed through food.

Breast stem cell markers were studied. The self-renewal process of breast stem cells that is the hallmark of initiating cancer was interrupted. This is considered a significant development. Further both compounds did not affect normal breast tissue.

Controlling Obesity and Fight High Cholesterol Levels

Turmeric and black pepper could be combined to fight high cholesterol levels, obesity and diabetes. Diet induced bodily changes to blood glucose, body weight, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol and triglyceride could be affected by CPQ.

CPQ is an acronym for the combination of curcumin, piperine and quercetin (got from onion skin).Presence of flavonoids in CPQ is possibly responsible for many of the reactions like decrease in glucose transport. These studies were conducted on laboratory rats.

Other Benefits

When combined together, turmeric and black pepper could help relieve gastric mucosal damage caused by peptic ulcers.

This is due to the capacity of curcumin to prevent growth of Helicobacter pylori bacteria which causes peptic ulcers and the protective capability of piperine.

Improving Memory Loss

They can benefit in improving memory loss and protect people from cognitive impairment from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. Curcumin has anti-amyloid ability that can reduce amyloid pathway in Alzheimer’s. Both low and high doses of curcumin fed to laboratory mice seemed to reduce age-related memory loss.

Dr. Carolyn Anderson claims that if these three ingredients are used every day, there is almost no chance of developing cancer.


Mix ¼ teaspoon Turmeric, ½ teaspoon Olive Oil.

Add these ingredients in one teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.

If you only consume the mixture, it can be mixed with little water.

 If the mixture is used in cooked dishes, make sure to put the mixture at the end of cooking.

This natural mixture does not have side effects claims Dr. Anderson.
