LebensbaumBlack pepper, corns - organic
Latin name: Piper nigrum L., Piper aromaticum
It is the piperine contained in the bark of the peppercorn that gives a sensation of pseudo-heat (there is no burning, just a sensation). Piperine is an alkaloid whose properties are among others antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective (liver protecting).
The active substance in turmeric, curcumin, is poorly absorbed and rapidly eliminated by the body when turmeric is consumed alone, but the simultaneous consumption of turmeric and pepper shows a very strong increase in the absorption of curcumin, which then becomes about 20 times higher. Thus pepper (thanks to its piperine which prevents the process of removal of curcumin) improves the health effectiveness of turmeric.
