Hi there, Happy New Year! It's business as usual here on my site, but please note that the pandemic is still causing disruptions with Royal Mail, so you order might take longer to arrive, and apologies if you are still waiting for your parcel... in some areas they are taking up to a month to arrive. Please also note that I am not currently sending orders outside of the UK due to postal disruptions. I hope to do so again in a few weeks. I will have more joggers coming back into stock in 1-2 weeks. Thank you and keep safe, Lucy x

Amazing health boosting properties of black pepper!

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
  • Aid sinusitis, asthma and nasal congestion
  • Reduce heart and liver ailments
  • Improve cognitive function and reduce memory impairment
  • Treat peptic ulcers

So perhaps that's why we all love it, subconsciously we know it's great for us! Happy grinding!
