I love black pepper. Always have. I put it on EVERYTHING, even sweet things! like porridge! Love the little kick it gives. And what's more, it turns out it has lots of astonishing health boosting properties too! 
  • Improves digestion -  consumption of pepper increases the hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach, thereby facilitating digestion
  • Prevent the formulation of intestinal gas (!)
  • Aid weight loss
  • Provides respiratory relief
  • Antibacterial qualities
  • Contains antixoxidiants so helps reduce risk of cancer
  • A rich source of minerals such as manganese, calcium, phosphorous & iron and vitamins such as riboflavin, vitamin c, K and B6 and also dietary fibre
