Black Pepper


Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit (the peppercorn), which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. The fruit is a drupe (stonefruit) which is about 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter (fresh and fully mature), dark red, and contains a stone which encloses a single pepper seed. Peppercorns and the ground pepper derived from them may be described simply as pepper, or more precisely as black pepper (cooked and dried unripe fruit), green pepper (dried unripe fruit), or white pepper (ripe fruit seeds).

Health Benefits of Black Pepper:

Packed with Antioxidants
As we’ve already started to explore, black pepper is rich in compounds that have an antioxidative effect on our bodies. This means they help to protect our cells against damage by free radicals – which is linked with several chronic diseases.
As well as piperine, black pepper contains a range of flavonoids that act as antioxidants.

Combats Inflammation
The piperine in black pepper also acts as an anti-inflammatory, which is one of the reasons this spice is often recommended for people with arthritis (especially when combined with turmeric – more on this below).
Studies show that piperine suppresses the body’s inflammatory response. In turn, this can ease the joint pain and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis. It may also reduce the swelling of the airways that occurs in asthma patients or those who suffer from seasonal allergies.

Aids Absorption of Other Nutrients
You may spot black pepper (or its active ingredient, piperine) used in combination with turmeric in herbal tea blends and natural supplements. The reason is Piperine helps our bodies absorb other nutrients, including the curcumin that makes turmeric such a sought-after spice.
Curcumin has a powerful antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effect on our bodies, but it is difficult for us to absorb. However, when we add piperine to the mix, it increases the bioavailability of curcumin by around 2000%. That’s why we combine the two in many of our blends, including NutraJoint, which is aimed at reducing joint pain and managing inflammation.
