Anti-inflamitory turmeric bombs
The active compound curcumin, found in turmeric, has been widely studied for its potent anti-inflammatory effects. These DIY Turmeric supplements contain quercetin and black pepper, two ingredients shown to improve the bioavailability of curcumin.
⅓ cup organic ground turmeric
Big pinch of finely ground black pepper
About 1 Tbs. quercetin powder (about 10 capsules, emptied) Optionsl
3 Tbs Coconut oil
Unbleached parchment paper
Line a baking sheet with the unbleached parchment paper. Make room in your freezer to put the cookie sheet for a few hours when the Turmeric Bombs need to set.
If you are like me and have a tendency to spill things, wear an apron! Turmeric powder stains clothing, and the powder can get on your clothes if you stir the mixture too vigorously.
Melt the coconut oil so that it is soft, not hot though.
In a bowl, stir together the turmeric, pepper, and coconut oil. You should have a thick mixture with which you can form pills.
Use a spoon to scoop small pill shapes onto the baking sheet.
Freeze until firm, then transfer to a storage container and keep in the freezer.
Take the turmeric bombs as needed.
We also use these for cooking, drop one or two in a pan and use as your oil for a stir fry.
