Chances are you have black pepper somewhere in your home. While this common cooking ingredient can certainly spice up a meal, it also contains something that can at times be beneficial to your health. That nutrient is called Piperine. More often it is referred to as Bioperine. For those confused over the differences of Piperine vs. Bioperine, just know that Bioperine is Piperine’s trademarked name, so the two terms are often interchangeable.
So what is Bioperine? It’s the active ingredient in black pepper that contributes to that unique spice you taste. Black pepper has long been regarded as beneficial to one’s health throughout history.
Black Pepper fruit (Piper nigrum), also known as piperine, has been standardized by Sabinsa Co. into their formula BioPerine® which contains a minimum of 95% extracted piperine.
Bioperine has undergone clinical studies and enhances the absorption of nutrients by approximately 30%. Piperine affects the metabolism of various medications and supplements via intestinal absorption and by inhibiting detoxification enzymes in phase II and the glucuronidation process of substances in the liver. Piperine also slows the intestinal transit rate and allows the intestines to breakdown substances more slowly, so they stay in the body for longer periods to aid absorption.
Bioperine can aid the absorption of herbal extracts (such as Curcuma longa, Boswellia serrata, Withania somnifera, Gingko Biloba and capsicum annum), fat-soluble vitamins (such as Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K), water-soluble vitamins (such as Vitamin B2, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6, Niacinamide, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C Folic acid), antioxidants (such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene, pine bark bioflavonoids, lutein/zeaxanthin, zinc, germanium, selenium), amino acids (such as isoleucine, leucine, lysine, threonine, tryptophan, valine, phenylalanine, methionine), and minerals (such as iron, calcium, zinc, selenium, vanadium, chromium, iodine, manganese, potassium, magnesium, copper).
