Harnessing the Power of Piperine
Piper nigrum, commonly known as black pepper, is considered the “King of Spices” throughout the world due to its pungent principal compound, piperine. BioPerine® is a patented extract obtained from black pepper fruits which contains a minimum of 95% piperine and is used to enhance the bioavailability of nutrients.
Increasing Bioavailability of Supplemental Nutrients
BioPerine® has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for over 18 years. The extract has been shown to increase absorption when co-administered with nutritional materials, including:
- Water-soluble vitamins (ex. vitamin B6, vitamin C)
- Fat-soluble vitamins (ex. ß-carotene)
- Amino acids (ex. selenoamino acid)
- Minerals (ex. iron, selenium)
- Antioxidants (ex. resveratrol, CoQ10)
- Herbal extracts (ex. curcumin)
Patented, Clinically Studied Black Pepper Extract
BioPerine® is the only product sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. BioPerine® has undergone numerous clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use.
In general, BioPerine® was found to enhance absorption of nutrients by at least 30% through several processes, including modulating efflux mechanisms, modulating metabolizing enzymes, and thermogenesis.
