Importance of Combining Turmeric with Black Peppercorn
Peppercorn may not be an ingredient we automatically think of when we consider what goes into a cold-pressed, organic juice drink, but the properties and effects of this spice can greatly improve the function and health of many of our bodies’ systems.
When it comes to raw juices, peppercorn is especially helpful in juices that contain turmeric, a spice with powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Turmeric by itself is difficult for the body to digest and absorb, but when peppercorn is mixed with it, the bioavailability of turmeric increases by 2000%, meaning that the body can absorb the nutrient and maximize its effects.
Powers of Peppercorn
Improves Digestion and Nutrient Absorption: Peppercorn helps to increase the levels of hydrochloric acid, a key component for proper digestion, in the stomach. When the digestive process happens according to plan, gastrointestinal issues like gas, diarrhea, constipation, and cramping are much less likely to occur. Peppercorn’s anti-inflammatory properties also assist in healing the stomach lining when it has been irritated by excess mucus from peptic ulcers. Another perk that peppercorn brings to the digestive system is that because it enables efficient digestion and reduces water retention, it helps with weight control and loss.
Combats Cancer: The antioxidants in black pepper actively prevent the formation of free radicals and heal the damage caused by existing free radicals. This ability to control free radicals is directly related to the prevention of tumorous cancers such as prostate, breast, and colorectal.
Relieves Congestion: If the above attributes aren’t impressive enough, the list of amazing effects of peppercorn goes on. Black pepper can act as an expectorant that moves and breaks up phlegm and reduces congestion in the nasal passages and respiratory tract. When added to juices, soups, and stews, this amazing spice can help conquer a nasty cold!
Lowers Cholesterol: Another beneficial characteristic of peppercorn is that it helps lower cholesterol by scraping excess cholesterol from the intestinal walls. This, in turn, helps prevent atherosclerosis, a buildup of fatty deposits and plaque along artery walls that is linked to heart attack and other serious circulatory issues.
Peppercorn is an important ingredient to consider when juicing. Its array of helpful properties is undeniable, and it is an ingredient that should be regularly included in our diets. Adding peppercorn to fresh vegetable juices is one way to introduce this important spice to our systems and begin realizing its powerful effects on our health!
