Organic black peppercorns can add a lot of spice to your meals. They are also good for you.

Centuries ago, more people recognized the medicinal value of these pungent dried berries. They were carried and shipped from tropical lands where they grow to Europe.

Black pepper is considered a good digestive aid. It also contains natural anti-inflammatory compounds, which have the potential to help protect against disease. Many natural health experts believe that excess inflammation is the root cause illness, including cancer, as well as degenerative disease, such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

In our house, we use organic black pepper liberally. Everyone in the family likes it. It’s one of the natural anti-inflammatory remedies I use to help keep my painful nerve inflammation in check. Because I eat well, and use various herbs, my symptoms are under control, and I’m able to live a normal life.

Please understand that I’m not claiming that black pepper, or any other spice, can help control or improve a serious condition. I use this along with many other natural remedies, including essential oils and homeopathy. My diet is also very strict.

Black pepper is just another good thing I have in my kitchen. Several years ago, I decided to get rid of everything that could have been contributing to my poor health. I’m now trying to eat as people have for centuries. They used spices such as black pepper on a regular basis.

There’s some evidence that certain spices work in synergy. For instance, it’s now known that curcumin, extracted from turmeric, which has medicinal properties, works better with a compound known as piperine, found in black pepper. This is why a number of curcumin supplements have added piperine.

If you’re shopping for black pepper, I highly recommend checking out the selection at Vitacost. This is a large online grocery and health food store. I’m a regular shopper because the prices are so good (much better than at my local supermarket) and it’s so easy to order my staples online.

Vitacost sells various brands of organic black pepper. I like to buy organic spices because I know they’re grown without herbicides or pesticides. Plus, if they’re USDA certified organic, they’re not irradiated. I order the Drogheria & Alimentari organic black pepper, which is delicious. It comes with its own built-in grinder, so we don’t have to worry about constantly filling a pepper mill. This pepper, which comes from Italy, has a wonderfully fresh taste and smell.
