The benefits of Black pepper

Good morning lovely ladies,
It seems that we have to start sprinkling black pepper more often on our food!
Research has found that black pepper is beneficial to fighting fat.
It seems like we should be using black pepper daily.  Piperine , the substance that gives black pepper its taste, is said to block the formation of new fat cells.  Soo-Jong Um, Ji-Cheon Jeong and colleagues describe previous studies indicating that piperine reduces fat levels in the bloodstream and has other beneficial health effects.  These researchers have documented that the black pepper plant has been used for centuries in traditional Eastern medicine to treat pain, inflammation, gastrointestinal issues and other disorders.  Laboratory studies found that piperine interferes with the activity of genes that control the formation of new fat cells.  The scientists said that piperine may also set off a metabolic chain reaction that helps keep fat in check in other ways.  The research group concludes that the findings may lead to more use of piperine or black-pepper extracts in the fight against obesity and related diseases.

The study has been published in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
