Botanical Name: Piper nigrum
Certified Organic
Origin: Sri Lanka / India
Qualities: Besides its culinary aspect, black pepper (piperine) is considered to have carminative, diaphoretic and diuretic qualities. Due to its antifungal and antimicrobial properties, ground pepper is often used to prevent food spoilage.
There is evidence that it can also act synergistically with other spices to enhance their medicinal potency, such as boosting blood levels of curcumin from the spice turmeric by up to 2,000%. Some suggest that the outer layer of the peppercorn stimulates the breakdown of fat cells and that black pepper may be an excellent source of manganese and vitamin K, copper, iron, chromium, and calcium.
