  • Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum)

There are several black pepper benefits. It is rich in vitamins and minerals such as copper, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, Vitamin C, B2, and B6. It also has substantial quantities of fibre, which is essential for good digestion. 

Black pepper benefits on health include prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer and liver problems. It appears to stimulate regions in the brain that could possibly benefit cognitive function and thereby help patients of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other cognitive malfunctions. It also has antibacterial and antioxidant qualities. Research suggests that piperine – the same substance that is used to treat vitiligo – also helps fight depression, improves memory, and ameliorates brain functions.
