No problems: Both turmeric and cayenne are healthy so you will get the benefits of both. Turmeric is poorly absorbed but adding black pepper to it dramatically increases absorption (but cayenne does not do that) so you might add a tiny bit of black pepper to your mix- see http://tinyurl.com/ybe6omag and http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=78 and https://draxe.com/cayenne-pepper-benefits/
