I cook half a cup of turmeric in a cup of water for 9 minutes, stirring pretty constantly, turn off heat, add 1/3 cup coconut oil on top, and when it is melted I grind about 2 teaspoons of black peppercorns into the oil. The active ingredient is piperine, which evaporates minutes after grinding the oil locks it in, the pepper slows the body's elimination of the turmeric and makes it more effecive. It works really well for me, and with much less heartburn than the powder in capsules.
I take about 3/8 teaspoon 2 or 3 times a day with a meal. And that is enough to keep me pretty comfortable and I have for the most part quit getting skin cancer. I had a pre melanoma taken off 3 or 4 years ago, but it hadn't gotten all the way and they got good margins. I've never let it metastasize, that stuff will kill you quick. It has to be kept refrigerated, so I divide batch into 4 parts and freeze 3, refrigerate the 4th. lasts 2 weeks in the fridge
