BLACK PEPPER: INCREASE PROTEIN INTAKE!

interesting read:
 
How black pepper helps digestion
In today's complex society, there are many more digestive problems than there used to be. Black pepper is a great way to combat this. More than just a spice, it has been shown to improve digestion and stimulate the secretion from the taste buds. This taste bud stimulation is a type of feedback loop. It tells the stomach that it's supposed to increase its own digestive juices, namely hydrochloric acid. This, in turn breaks down protein in the stomach, improving its ability to be further digested in the duodenum. If we don't make enough hydrochloric acid, we develop conditions like poor digestion, heartburn (GERD), or symptoms of indigestion. Black pepper can do a great deal to help maximize the function of the digestive system.

    I love black pepper, I have it on nearly everything. I also add cayenne pepper to most things too. Habit or addiction?, which I do not know.

    Please note that the active substance in black pepper (Piperine) can increase the effect of some medications. See Black Pepper is pretty Hot Stuff.
