Product Description: There are vast health benefits attributed to black pepper. For hundreds of years, it has been a key element in a wide variety of natural remedies from mixtures used to detoxify and clear the skin to massage oils that are popular in Ayurvedic treatments. From herbal tinctures to beauty treatments, black pepper certainly has more uses than most people would even dream of. There are almost countless health benefits black pepper is believed to possess, some of which include the ability to relieve:
• Respiratory disorders
• Common cold
• Muscular strains
• Dental disease
• Heart disease
While it might seem far-fetched, there is scientific reasoning behind the variety of ailments black pepper is believed to benefit. It is known to act as a very good natural anti-inflammatory agent as well as having relatively strong antibacterial properties. In fact, it was once frequently (and sometimes still is) used as a preservative to increase the shelf-life of certain foods because of its antibacterial properties.
In addition, black pepper is a rich source of manganese, iron, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, and dietary fiber. It can stimulate neural pathways in the brain, boosting neurological health and reducing cognitive malfunction and memory impairment.
One of the most beneficial effects of black pepper is that it enhances bioavailability. In other words, it helps your body to more efficiently transport and absorb other healthy foods that you consume, making those nutrients more accessible and available to your system as a whole
Flavor: There is a distinct and undeniable earthiness to the flavor of black pepper, one that is woody, piney, and sharp all at the same time. Black pepper also has a unique pungent taste all its own and is both biting and hot to average
