Piperine which is responsible for the pungency of black pepper may have anti-inflammatory effects, improve memory, mood and liver health.
Black pepper and long pepper contain an active compound, Piperine, that may have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Piperine increases permeability at the site of absorption for other molecules by modulating the local cellular lipid environment, as it has a molecular structure that is suitable for enzyme inhibition. Laboratory studies also suggest that Piperine may improve cholesterol levels, blood sugar control, and brain and gut health.

Additional Information on Piperine
The piperine in black pepper helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric that’s known for its health benefits. It also helps increase the absorption levels of beta carotene which is converted into Vitamin A in the body. Piperine is known to inhibit the enzymes P-glycoprotein and CYP3A4 in humans.
