The absorption of Turmeric is heavily minimized when black pepper isn’t present. Black pepper contains a compound called Piperine, a substance that enhances the absorption of Curcumin (a product of turmeric) by 2,000%. (source)
How Many Turmeric Shots A Day
The recommended daily dose is 60-80 ml. I purchased these 2 oz. glass bottles that holds slightly shy of 60 ml and kick back one per day. You can select a larger size if you prefer more in each dose. Turmeric Shots Amazon cost about $3 each, which adds up quickly.
How Do You Take Turmeric Shots?
I just knock it back with nothing else to wash it down. I enjoy the taste of spicy turmeric and ginger, but not everyone does. If that’s you, follow it down with a bit of juice or water or milk. You can also dilute it in a glass of cold water before drinking.
