Black pepper is a common household spice, derived from the dried fruit of Piper nigrum, a flowering vine native to India. This spice contains piperine, which is responsible for most of its health benefits. The thermogenic effect of the spice can help to enhance metabolic performance and prevent fat accumulation in the body. It can also help you burn fat quickly and increase satiety. You can either chew black pepper directly or can make black pepper tea to reap the benefits of this spice.
