We usually think of black pepper as a flavor enhancer and not a revolutionary superfood. But it actually has lots of medicinal properties and health benefits. Want to know the uses and benefits of black pepper? We got you!
Pepper increases hydrochloric acid which promotes healthy digestion. The outer layer of the peppercorn assists in breaking down fat cells and suppresses fat accumulation. Studies have shown eating spicy foods can boost metabolism by 8% and that effect lasts for hours.
Black pepper is often added to tonics to treat coughs and colds in Ayurvedic treatments. It provides relief from congestion and helps expel loose material, assisting you in recovering from infections quicker.
When partnering with Turmeric and other superfoods, black pepper helps to transport properties to different parts of the body, making it more accessible to the body.
You can use cinnamon in dishes that you cook or order from restaurants, in supplement form, or through hot beverages (our favorite being SUTRA Gold).
