Medicinal plant of the month

Piper nigrum

Originally based in India, it is now cultivated in many parts of the world. Our pepper comes from a new, very dedicated source in Colombia.

As a spice, you will find it in different forms: whether green, black, white or red, depends on harvest time, processing or drying.

But its fruits are always spicy, which is mainly caused by the alkaloid piperine.


Its ingredients have made him known not only as a spice but also as a remedy.

Pepper has a broad spectrum of efficacy, e.g. digestive properties and therefore can be used in stomach problems.
