We have been hearing a lot about Indigo children recently as they are becoming increasingly common, but what about Indigo adults?

Indigos are not a recent phenomenon, they have been arriving for decades so there are plenty of Indigo adults around, too.

Read through the following signs to find out if you’re one of them.

1. You always need to know why

Indigo adults rarely accept things ‘just because’; they have a strong need to understand ‘why’ things happen. Indigos question things incessantly, seeking to understand the meaning behind why things are the way they are. Indigos may in particular question inequality, suffering, hate and war as they cannot understand what fuels man’s inhumanity to man.


2. You dislike unnecessarily authoritarian regimes

One of the things Indigos often question is authority. This is because they do not believe the accepted wisdom is always correct. Indigos may have had a hard time at school because they argued with the accepted ways of doing things.

They can often be seen as argumentative and troublemakers, however, they do not necessarily mean to cause trouble, they simply cannot keep quiet when they see unfairness and inequality.

For this reason, Indigos often become apathetic towards conventional political and social systems. Instead of focusing on these old systems, they attempt to make changes in new ways such as sharing their views via new media forms, becoming active in environmental projects, or working in the healing professions.

3. You cannot bear to see others suffering

Indigo adults find it very difficult to bear the suffering of others because of their deeply empathetic nature. For this reason, Indigos may avoid watching too much news – not because they don’t care what is happening in the world, but because they care so much. For an Indigo, watching innocent people suffer through famine, war or natural disasters is traumatic and the feelings are worsened when the cause of the pain is avoidable such as in cases of war or the misuse of resources by large corporations. Indigos often avoid violent media in general because their empathy levels are so high that watching distressing scenes causes them emotional pain.

4. You have a close affinity with animals

Indigo adults often have a close affinity with animals. If they are able to, they may rescue animals or support animal charities. Indigos love spending time in nature and enjoy looking after gardens and houseplants, too. They also love to watch documentaries about animal behavior and the beauty of the planet we share with them. Indigos do not believe that animals are less important than humans in this world because they understand that everything is connected and we are all equal and interdependent.


5. You have feelings of existential despair.

Many Indigo adults have felt depression, helplessness and despair in their lives. These feelings may have started in the teenage years and cycled ever since. These feelings are often caused by the fact that Indigos simply cannot understand the harm that humans do to one another, the disregard for Mother Nature or the emphasis on power and profit. Indigos can often feel that they don’t fit in to a society that sometimes seems cold and uncaring. They can find building relationships tricky as they find it difficult to relate to others and are scared that people will think they are ‘weird’. They don’t like to judge others or gossip and are often not interested in material things or popular culture. Once Indigos find a cause they can work towards to make a positive difference in the world, the feelings of despair often lift.

6. You have had some unusual spiritual experiences

Indigo adults often develop an interest in psychic or spiritual phenomena from an early age, much to the surprise of their family and friends. It is not uncommon for Indigo children to share a desire to visit religious buildings or to pray, despite being brought up in non-religious families. This interest continues to develop as Indigos reach adulthood.

Indigo adults are open-minded about spirituality and religion, seeing only the love and light behind them rather than accepting religious dogma. Indigos may have had experiences with seeing beings from other realms such as spirits, ghosts or angels. They may have also have had many ‘bliss’ experiences and felt an awareness of other dimensions and parallel realities.

Indigos might also experience problems in the material world such as being unable to wear watches as they always stop working, having problems with computers and other technologies behaving strangely when they are around, or finding the lights around them frequently flicker or blow out. Indigos often have a special affinity with the time 11:11 and notice it often when they happen to glance at a clock.

7. You feel a strong need to find your life purpose


Indigo adults often feel a burning desire to find and achieve their life purpose. They may feel a very strong need to make a difference in the world and leave it a better place. However, it is not always easy for them to find this sense of purpose within the society in which we live. In a society that values hard work, financial and social success, political power and consumerism, Indigos can often feel like failures. This can lead to frustration within the Indigo person who feels this deep need to achieve their potential but cannot find the structures to support them in this desire.

Learning to listen to their intuition may be the first step an Indigo adult needs to take to move towards their life purpose. Their intuition will then lead them towards people with similar values and sources of information that will support them on their path. When an Indigo adult can learn to question the social norms of their culture and society and seek a deeper sense of meaning, they can begin to strive towards their sense of purpose and begin to flourish.

Indigo adults can make a real difference in the world because of their special gifts. If you think you are an Indigo, then it is well worth exploring this dimension of your spirituality further to enable you to bring your unique gifts of light and love to the world.

When you hear the word “psychopath”, you might think of Hannibal Lecter or Ted Bundy, but most psychopaths are actually non-violent and non-incarcerated members of society. In fact, there’s a good chance they’ll seem exceptionally altruistic and innocent to the average onlooker.

As described in the Psychopath Free book, psychopaths are first and foremost social predators. With no conscience, they’re able to use charm and manipulation to get what they want from others—whether it be families, friendships, relationships, cults, the workplace, or even politics. The bottom line is, they modify their personalities to become exactly the person they think you want them to be. And they’re good at it.


But when they no longer need anything from you, that’s when the crazy-making behavior begins. Here are some common phrases you’ll hear from a psychopath who’s trying to make you doubt your sanity:

1. “You over-analyze everything.”

Of course there are people who DO read too much into situations. The difference with psychopaths is that you’ll always discover you were correct in retrospect. They intentionally do things to make you feel on-edge or paranoid, like flirt with a once-denounced ex over social media for the whole world to see. When you question them, they accuse you of over-analyzing the situation. But then a month later, you discover they were actually cheating with that person. Psychopaths want you to doubt your intuition by making you feel like a crazy detective, constantly planting hints to make you feel anxious and then blaming you for having that anxiety.

2. “I hate drama.”

And yet, you’ll soon come to discover there’s more drama surrounding them than anyone you’ve ever known. Psychopaths will first idealize you above everyone else, praising you for your perfect easy-going nature. But because they are perpetually bored, this never lasts long. They are pathological liars, serial cheaters, and eternal victims. Before long, these qualities inevitably start to surface and cause you overwhelming confusion. Any time you mention your concerns or frustration, they’ll declare their hatred of drama and make you feel bad for reacting to their horrible behavior (instead of addressing the behavior itself).

3. “You’re so sensitive.”

Psychopaths manufacture emotions in others—it’s what they do. After once showering you with 24/7 praise and flattery, they’ll ignore you for days on end and wait for you to react. When you finally do, they’ll accuse you of being sensitive or needy. They’ll insult, belittle, and criticize you (usually in a teasing/joking demeanor), pushing your boundaries until you finally speak up. Then they use your manufactured reactions to make you seem crazy. Within weeks, psychopaths can turn an exceptionally easy-going person into an unrecognizable mess of insecurities and self-doubt.


4. “You misunderstood me.”

Sure, healthy couples have misunderstandings and miscommunications all the time. But with psychopaths, they’ll intentionally say things they know will provoke you. Then when you react, they’ll turn it around on you and blame you for misunderstanding. Oftentimes, they’ll even deny that they ever said it. This is called gaslighting—blatantly doing or saying something, and then blaming you for misinterpreting it (or denying that it even took place). The fact is, you understood what they said perfectly fine. They’re just trying to make you doubt your sanity.

5. “You’re crazy / bipolar / jealous / bitter / in love with me.”

The name-calling usually starts when things are going downhill fast. According to a psychopath, all of their ex lovers, colleagues, and friends are crazy, bipolar, jealous, bitter, or in love with them. This becomes very confusing when they start reaching out to those very same people they once denounced to you, using them to triangulate and cause chaos (making the psychopath appear in high-demand at all times). Then they toss you in that very same “crazy” bucket, continuing their never-ending cycle of idealizing and devaluing anyone unfortunate enough to cross their path.


The only way out is to go No Contact. This means no texts, calls, emails, or even Facebook friendships. Otherwise you can be guaranteed that they’ll do anything and everything in their power to make you feel crazy. The good news is, when a psychopath tries to make you doubt your intuition, it means your intuition was causing them trouble. Psychopaths seek to psychologically destroy anyone who might threaten their illusion of normalcy to the world. So when they begin playing mind games with you, it’s actually a strange indirect tribute to your ability to notice that something was “off” about them.

The brain is a vital organ with multiple functions, responsibilities and tasks and it works as a main control center. It can easily be damaged due to its delicate structure, and this can cause different health problems. The World Health Organization has discovered that these are the 10 habits that cause brain damage:

1. Skipping Breakfast


You have probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but there are still people who avoid it very often. After spending the night sleeping, without food, avoiding breakfast will deprive your brain from the nutrients it needs, and doing this regularly causes brain degeneration.

2. Sleep Deprivation

Long term sleep deprivation accelerates brain cell death. Your brain needs to get rest from the stress and responsibilities during the day, so always make sleeping well a priority.

3. Eating lots of sugar

You cannot always be aware of how much sugar the food and drinks you consume contain. Sugar destroys the ability of the body to absorb nutrients which leads to malnutrition and brain disorders. Therefore, avoiding sugar will provide your body and brain with great health benefits.

4. Overeating

Overeating can be very dangerous as it leads to weight gain, bloating and most important – hardening of the brain arteries.

5. Smoking

Smoking is one of the worst habits for the brain. It causes brain shrinkage and dementia-related issues including Alzheimer’s disease.


6. Covering your head while sleeping

Depriving your brain from oxygen by covering your head while sleeping, increases the risk of inhaling excess carbon dioxide. Since you are sleeping you cannot feel the light-headedness caused by air deprivation.

7. Air Pollution

Try to avoid spending too much time in polluted areas because constant inhalation of polluted air causes oxygen deprivation for the brain and it affects its normal function.

8. Working Your Brain During Illness

When you are sick your body is giving you a sign that you need to take some rest and that the brain is desperate for a break from everyday responsibilities. If you force your brain to work while you are sick you can cause brain damage and also reduce the brain efficacy.

9. Talking Rarely

Talking is an activity that promotes brain growth and development, so engaging in intellectual conversations can be very beneficial for proper brain function.


10. Lack of Stimulating Thoughts

Like talking, thinking also improves brain function and enhances your mind. The lack of stimulating thoughts causes brain shrinkage, which leads to decrease of your abilities and skills.

The brain truly is a remarkable organ, so instead of damaging it with unhealthy habits, try to learn how to develop it in order to get the most of what its’ capable of.

Watching these kind of videos restores my faith in humanity…

Diver Gary Grayson was in the waters off the Scilly Isles in the United Kingdom when he was suddenly joined by two grey seals.


And the seals weren’t the least bit shy.

One of them swam up to Grayson and touched its nose to his.

Gary didn’t understand what the seal wanted.

But when he stretched out his hand, the seal took hold of it and pulled it to its stomach.

The seal simply wanted to cuddle—and be scratched on the belly!

I never realized how much seals are like dogs…

1. You do everything by yourself and feel isolated from others.

The more mature you are, the more you can handle everything by yourself and it feels like you don’t want to be anyone’s burden. You’ve even always said, “I’ve got this,” to those who are sincerely willing to help you. More often than not, you feel lonely and isolated, but you feel proud of yourself on being strong and independent at the same time.


2. You realize that you have some issues with yourself.

You know exactly that you have issues to overcome; whether it’s about your anxiety, mood swings, trust issues, or her issues which disturb your well-being. You will acknowledge when, how, and in what condition those issues will appear and you’ll give your best efforts to overcome them.

3. You have a strong desire to cut off some unnecessary relationships.

As time goes by, you will feel that you have a lot of acquaintances, but few friends. You begin to question your relationships with other people; you start to realize who’s real and who’s not, who wants to stay or vice versa. You’ll feel disappointed, guilty, and sad towards losing some friends that you loved, but you’re brave enough to leave the relationships which were toxic and emotionally abused your inner self.

4. It’s hard for you to trust people.

Not only because you’re being selective about your friends, but also because you won’t easily buy people’s bullshit. You’ve been disappointed a lot of times by betrayals and broken promises; you know exactly how the real world works. But, once you believe in some people, you will be loyal to them and you will do anything to maintain that relationship.

5. You always feel that your life is boring.

It’s hard for you to feel satisfied with your life; there’s always something more you would like to achieve. The same routines and work will bore you to death and you’ll always be thinking, “What’s next?” which makes you always want to strive more. Moreover, your life is “boring” because you have less unnecessary drama in your life- which is something to be proud of.


6. You are too familiar with the feeling of sadness.

For you, life has no sugar coats; there are days when you feel hopeful, but there are also times when you feel like you’re at the lowest point of your life. You are able to accept the broken hearts, failures, disappointment, and the feeling of sadness. You acknowledge that life is not always about being happy. But even though you feel the pain, you are able to bounce back again and realize that there were lessons from everything that happened.

7. You always feel like you’re running out of time.

More often than not, you feel that 24 hours a day are not enough. You barely have enough sleep and you always find yourself in busy situations. It’s a struggle for you to spare time for yourself and your loved ones. There will always be something you have to do and sometimes you are too hard on yourself in doing things. This means that you have a strong determination to be successful.

8. You regret the mistakes you’ve made in the past.

It’s easy for you to blame yourself for any mistakes that you made in the past. You acknowledge that you’ve made some bad decisions and sometimes you want everything to go back to how it used to be. But, you realize that regret will take you nowhere and the only thing that you can do is to not repeat the same mistakes you’ve done.

9. You always miss your childhood, family, and your loved ones.

Growing up sucks and you always find yourself looking back to your old life when everything was according to its place. You live on your own and being separated with your family and loved ones is not easy at all. But, deep down inside you don’t want to give up; you’re fully aware that all the struggles and success will be the best gift for all the people that you love.

10. You feel lost, confused, and anxious about your future.


You appear to be bold and strong, but most of the time you feel extremely insecure about your own life. You’ve always questioned yourself regarding what you really need and what your life purpose is. You don’t exactly know how life supposed to be, simply because many unexpected things happen. But, despite all the confusions and fears, you can manage yourself to always finish your responsibilities and work. At the end of the day, you always take things one day at a time and you fully understand that everything will happen according to your own time zone.

The subconscious rules so much of our lives from behind the scenes. From the moment that the sperm meets the egg and begins to process of forming a life, you are governed by the subconscious- your mothers and your own. The subconscious is the force that tells your heart how to beat, when to blink, when to feel hungry.

All of your physiological functions are the work of your deeper mind. It also has a huge impact on how we perceive the world. The subconscious works very quickly, analyzing the world around you all the time, finding the patterns and making assumptions that you realize consciously. In metaphysical terms, the subconscious is the force that can make or break our creative and spiritual processes. In many ways, the subconscious is a truer reflection of your soul – it is the foundation upon which the ego and the conscious mind our built. So how do we make it listen?


This is not an easy answer. There is not one method that will make everyone’s subconscious change its old patterns to conform to the new paradigm that we wish to consciously install. I have decided to explore the methods that are either the most popular or the most effective to me personally that I do not see being explored as much as I think they should. Try them out, experiment and explore, and you will find something that works for you so long as you maintain an open mind.

1. MEDITATION AND VISUALIZATION

Chances are, we all have heard about the many many benefits of meditation, so I won’t go on beating this dead horse for too long. All you need to know for these purposes is that when you meditate you blur the boundary of the conscious and unconscious and begin a sort of integration process.

The reason we focus on our breathing so heavily when we meditate is that it is one of the actions that can be controlled by both the conscious and subconscious minds.

As we relax more deeply we become a mix of subconscious and conscious, until eventually both are united and transcend to a state of super-consciousness. It is during this process that we can very easily release old paradigms and install new ones. Simply visualize your intent while you meditate. This is rewriting your subconscious. All a personal paradigm really is, is a story that we keep subconsciously telling ourselves until it becomes real around us. Now is the time to write a new story with a happier ending.

2. HYPNOTHERAPY

Hypnosis works very similar to meditation, the only difference and benefit being that there is someone to guide you every step of the way.

Many people find that meditation and visualization do not work for them because they get distracted, their phone starts buzzing, or they just can not figure out how to be both relaxed and invested at the same time. A good hypnotherapist can assist in all of those things.

More likely than not he or she will have you turn your phone off on the outset of the session. Their voice and instruction that are both calm but authoritative will keep you focused, and the fact that you probably paid money to have this session take place will make you much more invested in focusing.

He or she will teach you how to relax and have an environment that you may feel more suited to this work than your own home. I am aware that not everyone has the opportunity to find a hypnotherapist, and that is okay.

There are still other methods that can be explored, and there are also a wide variety of guided meditations and recorded hypnotherapy videos online, for free.


3. SLEEP

Sleep, like meditation, is a time when the boundary of the two minds is thinner. How often do we find ourselves falling asleep thinking about all the things they don’t want to do tomorrow or are already stressed about from the past day? Have you found yourself drifting to sleep thinking about work, the fight you had with your lover, all the errands you have to run tomorrow, or just loneliness?

Many people find that when they are about to fall asleep that this is the time they are no longer distracted and their worst anxieties and fears can bounce around our minds.

This is an unfortunate side effect of a culture that teaches us to fight and fear what we hate rather than focus on and create what we love. It is especially unfortunate because as you are in that half asleep state, you are just pouring these ideas in their purest form straight into your subconscious. As you fall asleep you are essentially a tiny coin being thrown into the giant wishing well of the subconscious.

If night after night after night you are placing all that stress and negativity into the great wishing well of the subconscious, than that is all your subconscious is going to know how to see the next day.

As you fall asleep, think about the things you want. Picture yourself with your perfect guy, visualize yourself working at that perfect job, explore your dream vacation. This begins filling the subconscious with positivity. You will wake up the next day feeling great, and the subconscious will begin rewriting itself to meet these positive goals.

4. RITUAL

The final method I have here is the one I have found most personally effective. There is, among much of the spiritual community, a distinction between what Occultists and Pagans call Magick, and this force that the New Age community refers to as the Law of Attraction. Many enlightened individuals realize that these to forces are actually just different names for the same idea.

However, New Agers go about making vision boards and using affirmations while Witches and Occultists make talismans and say spells. There are people on either side who do not respect the “nonsense” of the other side. But really, I think the people who are the most enlightened are the ones who see the similarities behind both sides and realize what they have in common and how they can help one another.


One big way that the New Age community can learn from its seemingly darker sister is that rituals work. Plain and simple, doing a ritual gets results. This is because our subconscious speaks symbolically. It is very receptive to symbols, and a ritual is, on a level, a way of communicating symbolically to your subconscious.

When a Wiccan lights a green candle, burns some incense, and says a spell to attract abundance they are communicating to their inner self. Their subconscious understands the symbolism and accepts it, and sets to work making it happen. The rituals do not have to have ancient hymns to long dead gods or blood sacrifices. It can be as easy as lighting a candle and saying some words. The best rituals are personal ones, so devise some for yourself! Be creative!

There are many other methods that I have not included in this article for the sake of length. I will explore this in later articles, but I feel this is an excellent starting point. If this is new information to you, tell me if this is helpful! If this information is old hat, than tell me about methods you have tried that you find to work! As always, love and light my beautiful brothers and sisters.

The term adrenal fatigue refers to the condition in which the adrenal glands have difficulties with dealing with stress and busy schedule. In such a condition, you are likely to feel dull, overworked, and extremely fatigued.

Although adrenal fatigue cannot be diagnosed by your doctor, the warning signals below indicate that there is something wrong which needs to be addressed as soon as possible.


1. YOU’RE FEELING OVERWHELMED BY LIFE

Unfortunately, most people neglect self-care and fail to pay attention to their health until it becomes too late. It is very important to try out certain self-care practices, which are essential for your success. In other words, you need to move away from anything that doesn’t serve you, and focus on self-care practices instead.

2. YOU CAN`T SLEEP

The body needs 8-10 hour of sleep each night, which is the time it takes to reset, recover, and recharge. However, most people fail to get enough sleep which eventually throws off your balance. It’s high time you changed this by introducing a new, healthy habit.

Be in bed by 10:30, even if you have trouble falling asleep. To relax your body, practice some meditation or take a warm bath with added AlkaBath.

3. YOU FEEL EXHAUSTED AFTER WORKING OUT

Did you know that exercise should make you feel energized, instead of feeling fatigued and exhausted? Too much exercise can do the opposite and you may end up with additional stress on your adrenal glands.

In case you are exercising on a regular basis, but are still not achieving the wanted results and are struggling with abdominal fat, swap your exercise routine for more gentle forms like yoga, walking, and stretching.

4. YOUR HORMONES ARE FEELING WACKY


The thyroid may be affected during the second stage of adrenal fatigue, which may lead to symptoms like poor circulation, weight gain, dry hair, fatigue, and dry hair and skin. When the adrenal glands gave difficulties coping with stress levels, the hormone precursor steps in. This eventually leads to hormone imbalance.

The symptoms of a hormone imbalance, such as increased PMS symptoms and irregular cycle are highly unpleasant. To fight them back, eliminate caffeine, drink plenty of water, follow a nourishing diet, get enough rest, and add adaptogenic herbs into your diet.

5. YOU’RE FEELING OVERLY ANXIOUS OR DEPRESSED

Adrenal hormones affect cognitive function, mood, and mental stress. The pressure of a busy schedule may lead to an adrenaline rush and thus affect the functions above.

Both anxiety and depression are directly linked to stress, which means that we are less tolerant and much more frustrated.  So, take time for YOU and try out some self-care practices.

6. YOU’VE GOT CRAVINGS FOR SALT

Cravings for salt are very common drawback of hormonal imbalance, mostly due to the fact that the body looks for sodium and other minerals. When the production of salt-retaining hormone is reduced, you are likely to crave salty snacks and experience heart palpitations, dizziness, and low blood pressure.

Make sure you get enough minerals by using seaweeds like kelp and dulse, adding mineral drops to your water, or using a high quality Himalayan pink salt in your cooking.

7. YOU FEEL STIFF & SORE


Feeling stiff and sore is one of the most common signs of adrenal fatigue and the most common reaction to stressful events. You may feel stress in the back, jaw, or the neck! To fight this back, improve your sleep habits, try out yoga or meditation, and enjoy a warm, relaxing bath using blends like AlkaBath.

8. YOU’RE RELYING ON CAFFEINE TO GET YOU THROUGH THE AFTERNOON

Coffee doesn’t give you energy, but rather lends it to you. Although caffeine helps you get through the day by working as stimulant, it also affects your adrenal glands and keeps the body in stress mode. Although mornings can be difficult when you have adrenal fatigue, coffee drinker should understand that the initial energy they get from caffeine wears off and they end up feeling even more fatigued. Reach for herbal teas and coffee substitutes instead!

9. YOUR DIGESTION IS OFF

When you are under stress, your digestion is off and you fail to get the most of the food you eat.  This is completely normal reaction since functions like metabolism and digestion are down-regualted in adrenal fatigue mode. It is very likely that you will experience diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, bloating, and weight gain.

The solution lies in following a nourishing diet and Recharge supplementation like drinking lemon water, drinking plenty of water, getting enough minerals, taking a probiotic, and taking time to savor your meals.

Turmeric is quickly gaining popularity and for a good reason – curcumin, the active compound of turmeric, is responsible for most of its medicinal properties. Abstract from the MEDLINE, the bibliographic database of the National Library of Medicine, lists over 600 health benefits of turmeric and its main compound, curcumin. Adding turmeric to your diet will do wonders for your health, but there are a few things you need to know first.

Turmeric’s key ingredient isn’t easily absorbed into the body


Curcumin is not easily absorbed into the body. The low absorption will not get you all of turmeric’s health benefits, and studies show that curcumin concentrations in the plasma, urine and peripheral tissues are hardly noticeable regardless of the dosage.

How to increase curcumin’s bioavailability?

To increase curcumin’s absorption, you need to mix it with black pepper. NutritionFacts.com wrote in a post: “If people are given a bunch of turmeric curcumin, within an hour there’s a little bump in the level in their blood stream. We don’t see a large increase because our liver is actively trying to get rid of it. But what if the process is suppressed by taking just a quarter teaspoon’s worth of black pepper? Then you see curcumin levels skyrocket. The same amount of curcumin consumed, but the bioavailability shoots up 2000%. Even just a little pinch of pepper—1/20th of a teaspoon—can significantly boost levels. And guess what a common ingredient in curry powder is besides turmeric? Black pepper.” Another study titled “Influence of piperine on the pharmacokinetics of curcumin in animals and human volunteers”, stated that piperine and curcumin administration in human subjects increased the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%.

Add some healthy fats to turmeric


Turmeric is fat-soluble, and you can benefit from it by combining it with healthy fats such as coconut, ghee or olive oil. This way, the curcumin will be directly absorbed into the bloodstream through the lymphatic system bypassing the liver. The less the curcumin is exposed to metabolic enzymes, the better the chances of it remaining in the body longer.

Heat increases turmeric’s bioavailability

“The potent ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which, despite its power, is not easily absorbed by the body without assistance. This is where the sauté pan and a little warm oil come into play,” Dr. Sukumar explains, and continues: “I use it [turmeric] in every sauté, just a quarter teaspoon, a half teaspoon is enough. But you don’t have to use it sparingly – use it lavishly. The better way to take it, I feel, is to use it in your cooking very extensively. If you have any sauté, just sprinkle it in. The moment you heat oil and add turmeric to it, it now becomes completely bioavailable to you.”

Conclusion


To increase turmeric’s bioavailability, you need to:

* Activate the curcumin by heating it up

* Boost turmeric’s absorption by combining it with black pepper powder

* Mix turmeric with healthy fats in order for it to bypass the liver and be absorbed directly into the bloodstream

The recommended dosages according to the University of Maryland Medical Center are 1.5-3 gr. a day of cut root, and 1-3 gr. a day of dried, powdered root.
