What is bioperine?
Bioperine is an extract obtained from the black pepper fruit that is cultivated in the damp, nutrient-rich soil regions of southern India. Black pepper is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. The same fruit is also used to produce white pepper and green pepper. Black pepper is native to South India and is extensively cultivated there and elsewhere in tropical regions. The fruit, known as a peppercorn when dried, is a small drupe 5 mm in diameter, dark red when fully mature, containing a single seed.Although black pepper is a common household spice, its extract has also been used extensively for medical purposes, especially in Ayurvedic medicine. Its main action is to significantly enhance the bioavailability of supplemented nutrients through increased absorption and transportation into the blood. In fact, bioperine is the only product sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for this ability.
