– The black pepper is prized for its ability to promote healthy digestion and boost metabolism. This spice contains a compound called piperine which stimulates the secretion of gastric juices, facilitates the digestive process and absorption of nutrients.
Pepper is also an antiseptic, antibacterial and a natural disinfectant.
So it is very effective against the winter illnesses such as bronchitis, flu or colds. It is also a natural anti-depressant that stimulates the production of endorphins in the brain.
Also, black pepper is a very effective slimming ally because it stimulates thermogenesis, a process by which the body draws on its fat stores to produce energy, thus burning more calories.
Finally, the black pepper, such as the ginger, helps to activate the properties of turmeric.
However, black pepper is not recommended for people suffering from gastritis, hemorrhoids or ulcers.
– Turmeric is an Indian spice known for its many benefits.
A study at the University of Arizona showed that applying turmeric essential oil helped relieve pain associated with arthritis. When combined with black pepper, turmeric reveals its many benefits, including:
- Preventing blood pressure
- Detoxify the body
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Anti-cancer properties
- Stimulates brain activity and memory
- Stimulates the proper functioning of the digestive system
- Strengthens the immune system
Turmeric is also very effective against certain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. To prove it, the University of California researchers noted that in India, people between 70 and 79 are 4 times less likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s that Americans of the same age. The researchers discovered that this spice very present in the Asian diet helped prevent the disease.
Turmeric is also a natural antidepressant. Indeed, Dr. Adrian Lopresti from the Australian Murdoch University studied the effect of curcumin, a component of turmeric, on over 56 volunteers suffering from depression. For 8 weeks, half of the volunteers consumed a capsule containing 500 mg of curcumin twice daily, while the other took placebo. Dr. Lopresti noted that curcumin had improved their psychological state preventing several symptoms of the disease. “The results of our research supports the hypothesis that depression is not only related to the brain, but also to inflammation. Therefore, the anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin reduces the effect of the disease. “
In addition, several studies have indicated that curcuminoids helped prevent certain cancers. Indeed, the richness of turmeric antioxidants prevents the proliferation of cancer cells in the body. Turmeric also protects the stomach lining against a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori, which increases the risk of stomach cancer.
Mixed with almond milk, you get a rich vitamin and mineral drink that lowers the cholesterol, strengthens the immune system and heart muscles. However, do not take advantage of its consumption as almond milk can inhibit the absorption of iodine and cause thyroid damage.
