Small things with Great features : Black PepperPosted in by AICA Patrick
We get our black pepper from the pepper vine that can grow at least thirty feet tall in the stifling climates of the tropical parts of the world. The pepper vines actually bear fruit—small white flowers that turn into berries called peppercorns. Manufacturers take the peppercorns and collect them as whole berries or as ground black pepper.
Research studies have shown that black pepper actually has healthful properties such as:
· It is its ability to enhance the function of the digestive tract that makes it a good reason to put it in the dishes you cook.
· Diminish the amount of gas in the intestinal tract. This leads to less flatulence and bloating and is believed to be another benefit of increasing hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
· Has a great amount of antioxidant properties.
· Benefits against bacterial growth, particularly in the intestinal tract.
The good news is that all you need to do is put a little bit in your food every day.
