How A Black Pepper Extract Can Increase Supplement Absorption

December 15, 2020

​

When it comes to black pepper, most people don't give much thought to it beyond the flavor it can add to their favorite food dish. They rarely consider what it is derived from or whether it has any notable qualities that deserve a second look. Black pepper is such a staple of the average diet that many people prefer to focus their attention on higher-profile seasonings such as turmeric or basil, and either take them as a supplement or use them as a seasoning to add nutritional value as well as flavor, to their food. While basil and turmeric certainly have impressive healthful properties, as it turns out so does the humble black pepper fruit.

What Is BioPerine?

 

BioPerine is an extract derived from the black pepper fruit, the same black pepper fruit that ground pepper seasoning is made from. The patented extract is standardized minimum to 95% piperine. BioPerine is a valuable supplement because it helps to increase the bioavailability within the bloodstream of food nutrients, vitamins, active substances such as coenzyme Q10, and antioxidants such as resveratrol and beta carotene. In short, BioPerine maximizes the value of a high-quality diet and proper supplementation that is practiced by those committed to following a healthy lifestyle.

 

Why Absorption Matters

 

Some people may become frustrated or confused because they feel as if they are doing everything they can to improve their overall health. They exercise on a regular basis, they read food labels, and diligently avoid those items with questionable ingredients. They may even be taking the "right" supplements, but they're still not seeing the results they were expecting, in terms of physical performance and/or the test results they received from their annual physical exam. 

For those individuals who feel they are doing everything right, they may want to consider whether their less than ideal results are due to a problem with absorption. Adding a supplement containing BioPerine may provide exactly the boost they need to take their overall health and physical performance to the next level.   

 

The Benefits of BioPerine

 

The BioPerine extract offers substantial benefits to the health-conscious individual. Although BioPerine is mainly known for its ability to assist the body in maximum food absorption, it has many other outstanding properties as well.

Increases Performance 

After an intense workout, a supplement containing BioPerine can help reduce the rate of muscle damage that can occur after a grueling exercise session.

Increases Metabolism 

Thermogenesis is an important process that occurs within cells and is responsible for the production of energy and heat. BioPerine helps increase energy production in cells, which in turn can increase metabolism. A more responsive metabolism can allow individuals to achieve their weight loss goals at a faster rate.

 

Supports Cognitive Function 

BioPerine can help support an individual's mental health by increasing the production of key neurotransmitters involved in mood support. When coupled with curcumin, BioPerine can increase the production of "feel-good" neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.

 

Positive Effect on Blood Sugar Levels 

Staying within optimal blood sugar levels is always important, yet becomes more challenging as one ages. BioPerine has a positive effect on blood sugar levels because it increases the production of adiponectin, a protein hormone that typically has a reduced expression in those carrying excess weight. When BioPerine is taken with curcuminoids, it can help improve blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. 

 

Supports the Immune System 

BioPerine possesses anti-inflammatory properties that help calm the immune system. This can decrease the risk of developing an autoimmune disorder or an allergy to an external substance. 

  

Summary 

 

After reading about all the important benefits derived from the extract of black pepper fruit, health-conscious people will definitely want to add supplementation of this important extract to their daily diet.
