Black peppercorns are a versatile and essential ingredient in any food preparation. Besides a distinct flavoring agent, black peppercorns offer several benefits for your health.
They contain piperine, a compound that helps the absorption of nutrients from food by increasing bioavailability. Piperine is also known for its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Additionally, black peppercorns have antioxidant activity that helps to protect cells from free-radical damage and promote better digestion by stimulating the secretion of digestive juices.
In traditional medicine practices, black pepper has been used to alleviate symptoms such as coughs, colds, indigestion and stomach conditions due to its antibacterial effects against respiratory pathogens and digestive tract issues.
