Why is turmeric not really talked about for its medical ability ? I've had stomach issues for awhile so I started making turmeric water and drinking it in the morning and evening before bed just straight up 2 teaspoons in a bottle of water and the results are amazing .
It's good for
stomach digestion issues
has antibiotic properties
and that's just to name a few of it's benefits !
Why Turmeric and Black Pepper Is a Powerful Combination
Piperine in Black Pepper
Black pepper contains the bioactive compound piperine, which is an alkaloid like capsaicin, the active component found in chili powder and cayenne pepper (3Trusted Source).
Piperine has been shown to help relieve nausea, headaches and poor digestion and also has anti-inflammatory properties (4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source, 6Trusted Source).
Still, its most significant benefit may be its ability to boost the absorption of curcumin (2Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source).

You have to be careful with that stuff. A lot of natural oils really mess up hormone production, especially for men. Things like lavender, tea tree, and peppermint oils should be avoided by young men, just to name a few. They can affect testosterone and other hormones.
It may not sound like a lot when you look at the numbers, but these can have compounding effects, and a small ding in T levels can reduce free testosterone which affects muscle growth, mood, all kinds of things much more than people realize. Just because they are natural does not mean they should all be considered safe, especially when concentrated into oils.
I suspect all these oils and things making their way into soaps, shampoos and every other thing we use daily are why we are seeing widespread behavioral changes. I know Joe Rogan had the phthalate lady on a while back who measures taints, but there is reason to believe there is more going on than just plastics.
Use with caution and always research them first for more than just the benefits.
