3. Finish the turmeric paste

Turmeric and pepper potentate each other’s bioavailability and absorption increasing each other’s benefits, so add ground pepper to the mix and stir for about 8 minutes until it becomes a smooth paste. If it turns too dry, add some more water. Add a spoonful of coconut oil to allow the turmeric to dissolve into the fat and make it easier for your body to absorb. Leave aside to cool down.
