Black Pepper is one of the most commonly used spices in the world. Made by grinding dried berries (called peppercorns) from the vine Piper nigrum, black pepper has a sharp and mildly spicy flavor that goes with many dishes. Black pepper has a magnitude of health benefits for both humans and animals. Black pepper increases the absorption of essential nutrients and beneficial plant compounds. It may also promote gut health, offer pain relief, and reduce appetite. Black pepper is rich in a potent antioxidant called piperine, which may help prevent free radical damage to your cells. In addition, black pepper contains an active compound that has been shown to decrease inflammation in animals. It has also demonstrated cholesterol-lowering effects and may boost the absorption of cholesterol-lowering supplements. This versatile flavor-enhancer is worth adding as its bold flavor, along with its multitude of health benefits, is a great addition to many human and pet food formulations.
