BioPerine® is a standardized black pepper fruit extract that enhances the absorption of other nutrients which support various processes in the body. Therefore, black pepper fruit extract helps the body maintain good health.

According to the BioPerine® manufacturer, “The subtle, yet potent properties of BioPerine® have been measured in several clinical studies with healthy volunteers in the U.S. These studies measured the absorption of three distinct categories of products. The categories evaluated with and without BioPerine® were fat-soluble (beta-carotene), water-soluble (vitamin B6) and a mineral (selenium, in the form of selenomethionine). Gastrointestinal absorption of all the studied nutrients, as measured by amounts present in the blood, increased dramatically when administered with BioPerine® as compared to the control group receiving the nutrient alone.”

Black Pepper Fruit has been repeatedly shown through research to help:

  • Support immune system functions through its strong antioxidant activity
  • Aid natural defenses that protect healthy cells and DNA from oxidative stress

Interestingly, research emphasizes that one of the main benefits of black pepper fruit is its ability to increase the absorption of additional nutrients that the body needs. For instance, optimal levels of vitamin B6, C and selenium are often observed and maintained in the body when black pepper fruit is taken regularly. This mineral also aids the absorption of nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract, which enhances metabolism and this biological process is associated with better weight support. Therefore, supplements that contain black pepper extract help the body gets the most out of the nutrients it receives.
