Health Benefits Of Black Pepper (Piperine) And Turmeric
Health benefits of any food or herb is based on its key active ingredients.
Piperine is the key chemical in black pepper. Curcumin which is a polyphenol plays the same role in turmeric.
Both these compounds have been studied to examine the potential health benefits they can offer individually or together.
Here are some of their benefits:
1. Black pepper enhances bioavailability of Turmeric The problem with Tumeric is its low levels of bioavailability.
Most of the curcumin that is ingested from Tumeric gets metabolized before it can get absorbed. As a result, Piperine is said to help make curcumin more bioavailable. This could be because it could inhibit certain intestinal digestive enzymes. Hence, there are studies to test if co-administering curcumin with piperine could improve the bioavailability of the former.
These studies have been conducted on humans and laboratory animals. One study found that when even 2g of curcumin was ingested, its serum levels were very low. However, when 20mg piperine was added to curcumin the bioavailability increased by 2000%. The bioavailability, serum levels and levels of absorption of curcumin all improved dramatically.
Some studies have shown that Piperine enhances the serum concentration, extent of absorption and bioavailability of curcumin up to 2000%. (Influence of piperine on the pharmacokinetics of curcumin in animals and human volunteers. )
2. Help in reducing joint pain
Piperine in black pepper can trigger TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid type-1) in the body. This triggering can reduce pain. Some studies have focused on using piperine as a new way to help with the effects of joint pain and neuropathic pain.
3. Is Anti-inflammatory
Tumeric has been studied for its anti-inflammatory capabilities especially in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and other nflammatory conditions. Curcumin (found in numeric) is able to inhibit the activity of cytokines and enzymes such as COX-1 and COX-2.
4. Digestive Health benefits
Some research has show improvement with gastric mucosal damage caused by peptic ulcers. Tumeric (curcumin) helps prevent growth of Helicobacter pylori bacteria which causes peptic ulcers and the protective capability of piperine.
5. The Nootropic effect of Tumeric
There has been numerous research on the benefit in improving memory loss and protect people from cognitive impairment improving neurodegenerative health by acting as an anti-amyloid ability that can reduce amyloid pathway.
Curcumin has cognitive benefits to support brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).1 BDNF promotes the growth of neurons which is how your brain transmits information. 2, 3 BDNF is also vital for long-term memory.4 In a study
on healthy rats, curcumin was able to increase BDNF levels by 140%.
