For thousands of years, black pepper has been a staple ingredient all over the world.
Often referred to as the “king of spices,” it comes from the dried, unripe fruit of the native Asian plant Piper nigrum. Both whole black peppercorns and ground black pepper are commonly used in cooking
Black pepper, also known as the king of spices that has a load of health benefits and a major benefit of consuming pepper is that it aids in weight loss. It is also said to be good for digestion and prevents cancer by detoxifying the body. When this spice is added to the food, it makes your food taste better and spicier.
Here’s are six reasons to sprinkle some more –
1. To prevent cancer: The piperine in black pepper can be credited with the prevention of cancer, and becomes twice as potent when combined with turmeric. The spice also has Vitamin C, Vitamin A, flavonoids, carotenes and other anti-oxidants that help remove harmful free radicals and protect the body from cancers and diseases. The best way to eat pepper to harness maximum benefits is to eat freshly ground pepper, and not cook it along with food.
2. Stimulates digestion: Again, the piperine in black pepper eases digestion and stimulates the stomach, which then secretes more hydrochloric acid that helps to digest proteins in food. So a bit of pepper in food will actually help you to digest it faster.
3. Relieves cold and cough: Black pepper is antibacterial in nature, and therefore helps to cure cold and cough. A teaspoon of honey with freshly crushed pepper does the trick. It also helps to alleviate chest congestion, often caused due to pollution, flu, or a viral infection. You can add it to hot water and eucalyptus oil and take steam. And given that black pepper is rich in Vitamin C, it also works as a good antibiotic.
4. Enables weight loss: You might not want to believe this, but black pepper is brilliant when it comes to extracting nutrients from food. And it’s outermost layer contains phytonutrients, which helps to break down fat cells, and also increases metabolism. If you eat fresh pepper, and begin to perspire, that’s the pepper helping your body to get rid of excess water and toxins. But you need to control consumption – a pinch with your food (one meal) is enough.
5. Improves skin: Did you know that crushed pepper is one of the best exfoliators nature has provided us? Don’t use it directly though; add a bit of honey, curd, or fresh cream to it. It also enables blood circulation, and provides the skin with more oxygen. Adding it to your food also takes care of unwarranted skin wrinkles. Black pepper is known to help in the cure of Vitiligo, a condition where the skin loses pigmentation, and creates white patches.
6. Addresses depression: It’s said that the piperine in black pepper helps to deal with depression. It stimulates the brain, and helps it to function properly by making it more active.
7. Loaded with Antioxidants: All of us are exposed to free radicals (toxins, chemicals, and pollutants) every single day that can damage our healthy cells. Black pepper can help repair that damage and in turn, help reduce the risk of cancer and other diseases.
8. Helps You Sweat: Sweating is a good for you because it helps the body remove foreign bodies and toxins. Did you know that 4% of urine is fat? Black pepper helps the body remove excess water through urination that removes urea, fat, excess water, and uric acid.
9. Provides Relief from Vitiligo: A skin disease that can cause areas of the skin to turn white by losing its normal pigmentation. Black pepper contains ‘piperine’ that stimulates the skin to produce melanocytes pigment. This can be a healthier alternative when combined with ultraviolet light therapy instead of using harsh chemical treatments to eliminate and prevent this type of skin condition.
10. Supports Brain Function: Black pepper stimulates the chemical pathways in the brain helping to improve memory and cognitive function. For example, preliminary studies have shown that pepper is powerful in helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and improve memory by healing nerve damage in the hippocampus.
It does this by preventing free radicals (toxins, chemicals, and pollutants) from damaging the healthy cells in the brain.
Store it well
To take maximum advantage of the benefits of black pepper, it’s important that you store in the best way possible. It’s recommended that you buy whole peppercorn and crush it at home. This not only makes sure that the spice retains its flavour, but also that it lasts longer. Store it in an airtight glass container, and always in a cool, dry, and dark place.
How to use
The use of black pepper in food is limitless. Pongal, a breakfast food in South India, contains whole black peppercorns, which adds a delicious fieriness to the dish. Rasam with whole peppers is not only tasty, but is also cure cold and blocked nasal passages. Something as simple as fried rice can be spiked with pepper for additional flavour. Freshly crushed pepper can be added in almost anything — from salads, sunny side-ups, and soups, to pastas, and even buttermilk. You can use it to spice up sauces for steaks or curries, or use it to coat meats such as duck or chicken before grilling it. But most experts will recommend that you cook pepper as less as possible; it’s the freshly ground ones that are most beneficial. Therefore, invest in a good pepper mill, and keep it on the table — you never know when you might need it.
