The “king of spices” has proven to be one of the most notable factors influencing human culture throughout history. Native to southern India, this spice has been cultivated and used in that area since the start of recorded history. Black pepper (Piper nigrum) stimulates the taste buds in such a way that an alert is sent to the stomach to increase hydrochloric acid secretion, thereby improving digestion. It has long been recognized as a carminitive, (a substance that helps prevent the formation of intestinal gas). In addition, it has diaphoretic (promotes sweating), and diuretic (promotes urination) properties. It has demonstrated impressive antioxidant and antibacterial effects–yet another way in which this wonderful seasoning promotes the health of the digestive tract. The outer layer of the peppercorn stimulates the breakdown of fat cells, keeping you slim while giving you energy to burn
