Black pepper is not only known as a spice, but is also highly valued for its potential benefits for your well-being when integrated into's customized supplements.

Origin and tradition
Black pepper, botanically known as Piper nigrum, has a long history dating back to ancient times. Originally, the plant comes from the region of southwest India, where it has been cultivated for over 2,000 years. Over the course of time, black pepper has been highly valued in various cultures for its properties and was a valuable commodity on the ancient spice routes.

What does it contain?
The black pepper we know today is produced by drying the unripe green fruits of the plant. The drying process gives the fruits their characteristic dark color and typical pungency. The alkaloid piperine is responsible for the pungency of pepper, which is also thought to be responsible for most of the benefits for your well-being.

Piperine is a naturally occurring alkaloid found in high concentrations in black pepper. It is responsible for the characteristic pungency of pepper and gives it its unique flavor. But Piperine doesn't just have culinary significance - it also has some remarkable properties for your body.

Increasing bioavailability: One of Piperine's most intriguing properties is its ability to increase the bioavailability of other nutrients. Bioavailability refers to how well and how quickly a nutrient can be absorbed and utilized by the body. Piperine can inhibit the activity of certain enzymes in the digestive tract that tend to break down some nutrients before they are absorbed by the body. This means that Piperine supports the absorption of these nutrients and can therefore enhance their effect. Particularly well known is the increased bioavailability of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, when taken together with Piperine.
