Black pepper may be the new additive to help fight our obesity crisis. Researchers at Sri Venkateswara University in India studied the oil of black peppercorns when added to the diet of obese rats. They found after 18 weeks that lean body mass increased, as well as bone concentrations. They also found the blood sugar was decreased an hour after ingesting, instead of the expected spike that your normally get after eating. If these finds work in humans, they will be promising.

Key Takeaways:

  • Experiments show that lean muscle mass and bone density can be improved in lab animals by feeding them black pepper compounds.
  • Obesity continues to be a big problem in many societies and can be genetic as well.
  • There are several methods in cutting down obesity and black pepper may be a good option for some people.
