Science-Based Health Benefits of Black Pepper and Piperine

Piperine is the bioactive compound contained in black pepper from the Piper nigrum vine that’s native to southern India. It is normally sold as a supplement in the form of black pepper extract and standardized to contain 95% piperine. The trade name of this extact is BioPerine®.

Piperine from black pepper extract is included in Curcumin Complex and CoQ10 & PQQ Complex by Beyond Vita.

1. Increases Nutrient Absorption

Piperine is the first compound identified that can help increase the bioavailability of other compounds.1 It’s able to do this through inhibiting the metabolism or breakdown of different substances in the intestines and by the liver.2

In a study on the absorption of curcumin, researchers found that when participants took curcumin with piperine bioavailability of curcumin was increased by 2,000%.3

In another double-blind clinical study, piperine increased the bioavailability of CoQ10 by 30%.4

Multiple other studies support piperine increasing absorption and bioavailability of other nutrients.5,6,7

Piperine can help increase absorption and bioavailability of other nutrients.

2. Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory

Piperine may also help to reduce oxidative stress and fight inflammation.8

Additionally, since piperine can increase the bioavailability of nutrients it can increase the effectiveness of the powerful antioxidant called curcumin.

Piperine can help fight inflammation by increasing the effects of curcumin.


Piperine from black pepper is an important bioactive compound that can help increase the absorption and bioavailability of other nutrients in addition to its benefits as an antioxidant.*
