Black pepper is a great spice to turbo jump your digestion.
Pepper helps move food along the colon at a good pace, called your bowel transit time, and the quicker and smoother the ride, the healthier your colon. Black pepper’s healing power is attributed to piperines, which are the compounds that give you that zing when you eat some.
Black pepper also helps prevent and treat cancer and reduces the compounds known to worsen the inflammation of arthritis — providing much pain relief for arthritis sufferers.
