Indian medicine is known to have used black pepper to cure constipation, earache, gangrene and heart disease. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, also used pepper for similar treatments.
An article published in the National Institute of Health website says it does a lot more! "Piper nigrum and its bioactive compounds were also found to possess important pharmacological properties."1 It also talks about these benefits:
- Antimicrobial activity and the inhibition of biofilm
- Antioxidant effects
- "An anticancer effect against a number of cell lines from breast, colon, cervical, and prostate through different mechanisms including cytotoxicity, apoptosis, autophagy, and interference with signaling pathways."
- An "antidiabetic property has also been confirmed in vivo as well as hypolipidemic activity as evidenced by decrease in the level of cholesterol, triglycerides, and low-density lipoprotein and increase in high-density lipoprotein."
- "Anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anticonvulsant, and neuroprotective effects."
According to another article there are more benefits of Black Pepper including2:
- Anti asthmatic
- Anti ulcer
