Black Pepper

Beat bloating!

Season meats with pepper before you grill them: When the sharp taste hits your tongue, the taste triggers your brain to produce a special protective acid that lines the stomach, preventing bloating, and indigestion before it starts. "In fact, heartburn is the result of too little of this particular acid in the stomach".

Piperine, the main alkaloid in black pepper, also stimulates enzymes that help break down food and even help the body absorb nutrients-so food becomes even healthier! In fact, research reports it can protect against major health problems such as stomach ulcers and cancers of the digestive tract.
