Autoimmune diseases, cancer, liver protection, BP for some situations, diabetic issues, and so on. Worth reading and educating yourself.
Turmeric's bioavailability is increased by 2000% with piperine, according to data the same can be said for curcumin unless it has been modified for better absorption. Natural factors theracurmin has several studies showing its increased bioavailability but I believe all the studies were completed by the same company so take it with a grain of salt.

Hey @ironwill - yes black pepper has piperine and it increases the bioavailability of turmeric by 2000%. Not sure of the degree it increases curcumin but considering curc is part of turmeric, I always take 8 black peppercorns with my curcumin and turmeric.
