Here is What You'll Learn in this Podcast:


The scientific name for the black pepper is Piper Nigrum.

It contains the pungent taste and it gets this taste due to an active component called piperine.

Black pepper plant is a parasitic vine which can climb over the tree trunks around up to 30 feet. It grows in the tropical climate.

It blossoms into white flowers that turns to berries known as peppercorns. You can use the tender green pepper in the pickle form by adding lemon and salt.

When this peppercorn is allowed to sun dry, it turns into the black color.

Black pepper has been used as a medicinal plant in Ayurveda for many years. It is also used as a grandma remedy for many health conditions.

Here are some grandma type uses of black pepper:

  • Add a pinch of ground pepper and turmeric in the boiled milk for cold and cough
  • Helps with the digestion and it may help remove the toxins
  • It may help with the sore throat
  • It may act as an appetite suppressant and that's why it is used as a weight loss formula

My grandpa always used to give a combination of black pepper and turmeric for any type of healing issue.
