What is Piperine?

- Jul 28, 2020-

Black pepper extract (Piperine) is a pure form of piperine which is derived from the fruits of black pepper.

Piperine is an alkaloid. Black pepper is also known as Piper nigrum L and Piper longum L (long pepper).

The primary value of piperine as a health supplement is its ability to enhance the bioavailability of other supplements. This mechanism is still being studied, but the pipeline is known to inhibit the enzymes P-glycoprotein and CYP3A4 in humans. These enzymes are involved in the metabolism and transport of various metabolites. Animal studies also show that piperine inhibits CYP 450 enzymes that metabolize many drugs. In particular, piperine may increase the bioavailability of curcumin by a factor of 20.
