Black Pepper: The Good and Bad Health Effects
In this podcast, I want to talk to you about black pepper. Is it good, or is it bad? The truth is, there’s something very good and very bad about black pepper. Let me explain.
The main phytonutrient in black pepper that benefits your health is called piperine.
• Relieve stomach aches
• Improves dopamine and serotonin levels
• Reduce inflammation
• Provide vitamin K, iron, and magnesium
• Improves bioavailability of some compounds (by up to 2000%)
By far, the most amazing part of black pepper is its ability to increase the bioavailability of other compounds, including:
• Vitamin A
The problem is that piperine can also increase the bioavailability of toxic substances. It can prevent your liver from getting rid of toxins in the body, so you will retain it.
It’s not good if you’re taking certain medications, including:
• Viramune XR
