Black pepper (piper nigrum) is a member of the piperaceae family. It is grown for its fruit, which is dried and used as a spice. Black pepper is native to southern India. It is widely used in North Indian cuisines and South vegetarian dishes due to its spiciness. It played an important role in history, it was used as currency in ancient Greece, and it still plays a key role in the spice trade around the world. Its spiciness is due to piperine, and it is rich in minerals.
The piperine compound in black pepper can promote good digestion by stimulating the stomach, so the digestion of amino acids and the absorption of nutrients present in food can be improved, and the phytonutrients present in its outer shell can regulate excretion. It enhances the absorption of nutrients, i.e. it not only adds extra flavors, but also allows nutrients to be better accessible to the body.
It has natural antibacterial properties.
