Are there any benefits from eating tumeric and pepper (cayenne) together? I put both on nuts and seeds in the morning. Any problems?

Of small amounts of this Indian spice appear to be accepted by a large number of people but scientifically based medical studies are lacking! I would NOT recommend consuming large amounts of ANY so called "natural" food/spice. Side effects as well as interaction with normally prescribed medications is ALWAYS a possibility with these substances!
Hope this is helpful!

There is no specific: Dosage for this spice as a medicinal. It is claimed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used orally, topically or rectally.
