Turmeric and back pepper: the secret weapons in the fight against Lyme disease

Nutrition can play a key role in your recovery from infections including Lyme disease. Optimal nutrition doesn’t just help your body clear such infections more effectively, but also supports faster recovery by improving your energy levels.

Turmeric and black pepper are two natural remedies that have long been studied for their therapeutic benefits. Let’s have a closer look at whether turmeric and black pepper can help in the treatment of Lyme disease, and how they work.

What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is a rapidly growing infectious disease caused by the bite of ticks carrying Borrelia bacteria. [1] Supplements for Lyme disease treatment aim to boost your energy levels and support immunity, and are an important way to prevent and treat this condition. Here’s a brief analysis of how black pepper and turmeric could help you gain these benefits, reduce your risk, and gain relief from Lyme disease symptoms.

Therapeutic benefits of turmeric and black pepper

  • Research studies assessing the antimicrobial activities of curcumin have revealed its therapeutic role in the management of infections. The research shows that the antimicrobial action of curcumin could be highly effective against a wide range of bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites, making it a promising natural remedy for reducing the risk of infections. [2] [3]
  • The natural anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can be attributed to the high amount of curcumin present within it. Research studies have linked the use of black pepper and turmeric with reduced chronic inflammation in the body.
  • Because of their anti-inflammatory effects, curcumin and black pepper could help patients recover faster by reducing pain, swelling, mucus secretions and other symptoms linked with inflammation and infections. [4]
  • Pain in the joints and muscles is a common symptom of Lyme disease, which tends to persist even after the initial signs of this condition have resolved. Improving your diet and ensuring your body receives an adequate amount of nutrients can boost your energy levels and reduce pain. The use of organic turmeric and black pepper may also help to relieve pain. [5]
