Black pepper is a spice that is obtained from the dried berries of the Piper nigrum plant. The spice has been used in cooking and as traditional medicine for thousands of years. Black pepper contains the alkaloid piperine , which gives it its characteristic taste and smell.
Piperine also has some health benefits. It may help increase the bioavailability of some nutrients such as vitamins and minerals by improving the absorption of these nutrients in the intestines . It may also have anti-inflammatory properties and help with some digestive problems .
