Black pepper is more than just a kitchen staple and may offer various beneficial effects. Here are 11 science-backed health benefits of black pepper.
We buy black pepper in bulk and I chew a few peppercorns before taking my morning and evening supplements. Mainly, because I take turmeric supplements each day. There are curcumin supplements that are expensive and claim to have a much higher oral bioavailability. Turmeric supplements are cheap but are not absorbed well, adding piperine increases the absorbption by a staggering % - I don't have the number in front of me.
I didn't know about the added health benefits before reading some of the studies (albeit most were on rats) and was surprised to learn of some of the reputed health benefits.
Just another relatively inexpensive spice/food that has health benefits. Thought I would share.
