The Fresh Black Pepper originally belonged to Kerala INDIA, now grown in other tropical countries as well. Fresh Kerala Black Pepper holds more health benefits than you could imagine.
It has a sharp and mildly spicy flavour that goes well with many dishes. Deemed to be the “king of spices” black pepper is well used in ancient Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.
Here is the list of the Top 5 Health Benefits.
1. May prevent cancer
The piperine in fresh black pepper may be responsible for the prevention of cancer and turns two times as strong while blended with turmeric.
2. May relieve cold and cough
Black pepper is antibacterial and thus helps to cure colds and coughs. A tablespoon of honey with freshly crushed pepper does the trick.
3. May stimulate digestion
The piperine in black pepper eases digestion and stimulates the stomach, which then secretes greater hydrochloric acid that allows for the digestion of proteins in food.
4. May improve skin
Crushed pepper is the best exfoliator. Adding along with a bit of honey to it enables blood circulation and provides the skin with more oxygen. Adding it to your food also takes care of skin wrinkles.
5. May enables weight loss
Black pepper is really good when it comes to extracting nutrients from food. The outermost layer contains phytonutrients, which help to break down fat cells, and also increase metabolism.
