The Health Secrets of Long Pepper and Turmeric Finally Go Mainstream

For thousands of years long pepper, or pippali, and turmeric have been used in India as common herbal treatments in Ayurvedic medicine. Recently, studies have been validating what these ancient people knew all along: the combination of pippali and turmeric are anti-inflammatories that pack a punch against such health scourges as cancer, obesity, inflammation, pain, and even depression.

If you add turmeric to your food, you won’t get the same impact that is found in these scientific studies. Pippali is added to the turmeric because the piperine found in this black pepper makes the inflammation and cancer fighting component of turmeric called curcumin 1,000 times more bioavailable.

In a study published in the Breast Cancer Research and Treatment Journal, scientists found that this potent combination actually targeted the stem cells of cancer.

The thermogenesis of long pepper can raise metabolism and help with weight loss and also helps to increase satiety or a feeling of fullness.

The potent combination of pippali and turmeric can raise levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, as well as inhibit one of the enzymes known to cause depression called monoamine oxidase, or MAO.
