BioPerine® enhances absorption of key nutrients
BioPerine® is made from black pepper and can help our body absorb nutrients better. Just because you eat a lot of healthy stuff and take all of your vitamins doesn’t necessarily mean your body is primed and ready to use all that good stuff. Studies show that an ingredient in black pepper can help your body absorb key nutrients.
BioPerine® has been shown to boost the absorption of certain nutrients in your body by at least 30 percent. Piperine, the key ingredient in BioPerine® that is extracted from black pepper, can help your body in other ways too. It is a potent antioxidant that can help fight inflammation and may have benefits to degenerative brain conditions.
Helps other ingredients do their job
There are many factors that affect how the body absorbs nutrients and vitamins. Age, immune health, and digestive health are just a few. Also, certain nutrients themselves can be easier or more difficult for our bodies to use. BioPerine® is the only product made from piper nigrum extract (black pepper) to receive a patent for its demonstrated ability to increase the body’s potential to absorb certain nutrients. This means when you supplement your diet with key ingredients, BioPerine® can increase your body’s ability to use them, making them work harder for you.
Fight inflammation and potent antioxidant benefits
When our body’s tissues are fighting off infections, germs, or viruses, they become stressed and swell. This is a necessary byproduct of our cells trying to overwhelm the threat to our body and remove injured tissues. Inflammation can result in redness, swelling, and joint pain in some people. Research into piperine, the source ingredient for BioPerine®, has shown it may have positive anti-inflammatory benefits. It can also work as a potent antioxidant, protecting your body from waste products that build up in your cells during normal body functions.
Is it safe?
Piperine, the source from black pepper from which BioPerine® is produced occurs naturally in the black pepper fruit.
Piperine may affect the absorption rate of various vitamins and minerals which could be good or bad depending on the needs of your body.
Black pepper has been used in traditional medicines throughout the world. BioPerine® is the only source of piperine to undergo clinical studies in the United States and other countries to back up its claims that it is safe for nutritional use. It has been studied and used for its nutrient absorption properties for more than 20 years.
Disclaimer: It’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor before you take any type of supplement. And if you experience any negative side effects when you are taking one, contact a healthcare expert immediately.
How big is the dose?
There is no specific recommended amount of piperine to consume daily. In order to get the benefits of piperine for nutrient absorption it is suggested you take between 0.088-0.176 mg piperine per pound of body weight. The manufacturer suggests a 5mg dose may have positive benefits when added to a supplement.
