One of the most popular and commonly used spices in the world is black pepper. Known for its bold, “hot” taste, it has also been successfully used in traditional medicine, preservatives, and various health supplements for decades. During ancient times, black pepper was given to relieve stomach issues.
Black pepper contains an active ingredient known as Piperine or BioPerine. BioPerine, a patented extract, provides naturally enhanced bioavailability. It is often combined with other nutrients because it is known to increase absorption rates by 30% or more. The body, which normally does not absorb much of what is ingested, such as turmeric or vitamins A and C, is able to absorb more of the nutrients by utilizing black pepper’s enhanced bioavailability benefits.
There have been many benefits reported with the use of BioPerine. The Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine noted increases in the absorption of the following nutrients:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B-s
BioPerine has been credited with helping to boost metabolism. It is able to break down fatty cells, which cause a rise in the body’s temperature. Improved thermogenesis leads to increased metabolism and can result in weight management or loss. When combined with exercise and a healthy diet, results can be enhanced.
Improved Mental Health
BioPerine has been found to have an effect on increasing dopamine (linked to reward-motivated behavior) and serotonin (linked to self-esteem, happiness, sleep) levels. Increased levels of these two chemicals help improve mood, and wellbeing and help lower the risk of insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
The brain also benefits from BioPerine in areas of memory, attention span, motivation, and reasoning. Some have noted feeling more productive while being able to handle stress better.
Anti-Inflammatory and More
Studies have shown BioPerine helps regulate the immune system and its reaction to illness. Occasionally, the immune system may have a faulty reaction, and actually, be the cause of illness and inflammation. By reducing the reaction time, BioPerine helps to reduce inflammation and unnecessary responses.
Additionally, BioPerine has been used to treat gout and may be able to help prevent tumor growth. With its enhanced bioavailability capabilities, it is extremely beneficial when used for malnourishment.
Turmeric Curcumin Complex
BioPerine is one of five ingredients used in our Turmeric Curcumin Complex, which works as a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. We’ve combined natural ingredients including beetroot, Boswellia, and ginger to create a supplement to meet a variety of health needs without the side-effects of traditional prescription medication. The enhanced bioavailability from black pepper makes this possible. In order to ensure the body would absorb a beneficial amount of turmeric and additional ingredients found in our supplement, we utilized the powers of BioPerine. The bioavailability of 2000mg of Curcumin, when combined with 20mg of BioPerine, was enhanced by an astonishing 2000%.
