Our organic, whole, black peppercorns are a perfect addition to tea blends and may be found in our Spicy Chai. Black pepper is full of antioxidants and has many proven medicinal qualities. The key alkaloid found in Piper Nigrum, piperine, assists in cognitive brain functioning, boosts nutrient's absorption and improves gastrointestinal function. Black pepper is also antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antidepressant. Moreover, the synergistic interaction of black pepper with different nutrients, such as curcumin found in turmeric, also highlights the power of black pepper.
