Piperine Naturally Enhances the Absorption and Bio-Availibity of Herbs
What if there would be a scientifically proven way to enhance the absorption and bio-availability of pretty much everything?
Wouldn’t that be great, awesome, and extremely beneficial?
Hell yes it would. And today I’m now going to show you one inexpensive compound that does just that, and has plenty of research to back everything up.
Alkaloid Called Piperine
I’ve researched all kinds of supplements and herbs quite a bit during these years that I have been researching natural testosterone optimization.
Things that always pop up at some point are the studies about this alkaloid found in black peppers called piperine…
…“piperine enhances the bio-availability of curcumine”, “piperine boosts absorption of polyphenols”, “piperine improves absorption of creatine”, “magic alkaloid in black peppers enhances absorption of flavonoids”, “piperine boosts bio-availability of vitamin C”, and all those other crazy statements about piperine just seem to be everywhere.
It seems as if the alkaloid could improve bio-availability of pretty much everything, and I found that extremely hard to believe, as the study on curcumin for example noted that piperine created a 20 fold increase in the bio-availibity of the spice.
Can that be true? 20 fold increase? Could my supplements really absorb better with piperine extracts or black pepper?
I needed to find out why and how this happens, and why it happens with every substance that the researchers are testing it with…
How Piperine Actually Works its Magic
Here’s the mechanism of action on why piperine actually enhances the absorption of everything:
Piperine increases the secretion of hydrochloric acid inside of your gut, which breaks down foods with much faster rate and improves the absorption of all nutrients.
Furthermore piperine also stimulates the whole digestive tract, clears it out, improves gastrointestial flora, and clears parasites and candida from the gut. All of which improves absorption even more.
And that’s not even all…
…Piperine is also known increase the amount of dietary enzymes such as trypsin, amylase, and lipase.
So in a nutshell: Piperine really does enhance the bio-availability of pretty much everything, and trough multiple pathways, all closely related to gastrointestial flora and gut health.
Piperine as a Supplement
Both of the ways work, but the supplements usually contain much more piperine than what you could get from black peppers alone.
How to use piperine?
Using piperine is extremely simple…
…If you have it as a supplement, then take it simultaneously with your other supplements to improve the absorption.
Or if you have only black peppers, then eat a hefty amount of those black peppers when you take your herbs or supplements or whatever it is that you want to make more bio-available.
That’s it. A super simple, easy, and inexpensive way to improve absorption of your herbs and supplements.
It’s natural and I’d say that it should also even boost testosterone levels due to the fact that it improves gut health and gastrointestial flora.
So get yourself some piperine extract or eat a bunch of black peppers! That’s all you need to boost the effects of everything.
