You might be adding a dash of black pepper to your dishes to enhance their flavors. But did you know that the black pepper you use daily has a compound that can enhance your health?
Piperine, a compound that gives flavor to black pepper, is sometimes referred to as a miracle molecule when it comes to health. It is rich in antioxidants and offers multiple benefits that improve overall health.
Here are five ways in which piperine can help you:
Piperine has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce symptoms of inflammation, joint swelling, and pain. These properties also play a major role in reducing the symptoms of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.1,2
Piperine boosts immune cells, thereby protecting the body against bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections. The immunity-boosting properties of piperine also reduce allergic reactions and sensitivities.1,2
Piperine helps reduce blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. Thus, it can play a significant role in preventing and managing diabetes.2
4. Reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases
Piperine can help to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood. Thus, it prevents cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, heart failure, and atherosclerosis.2
5. Increases the absorption of curcumin
Curcumin, a bioactive compound in turmeric with multiple health benefits, is poorly absorbed in the human body. However, research reveals that piperine can increase its absorption by 2000%.3
Dr. Reddy’s CurHealth®*, thus, packs piperine and curcumin in a single sachet. This combination plays a role in boosting immunity, improving the digestive system, and preventing chronic diseases. You can sprinkle** the powder on the food of your choice and relish the flavors, which also contributes to enhancing your overall health.
6. Improves nutrient absorption
Piperine helps in increasing the secretion of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach, which helps in the proper digestion and absorption of food. It also boosts the absorption of nutrients such as vitamin B and selenium as these cannot be absorbed without HCl.2
Through all its benefits mentioned above, what makes piperine most extraordinary is its naturalness. It can be found in every household, without being costly or threatening to health. You can consume it by using black pepper in your recipes or try sprinkling Dr. Reddy’s CurHealth powder on your favorite foods** for additional benefits.

Eating a protein rich diet can also help in blood sugar control but it is important to choose the protein wisely.
Stretching decreases the risk of injuries, increases blood circulation, reduces muscular tension, and makes body more flexible.
No matter what exercise you do, stretching before and after can only benefit your performance.
