Black Pepper Extract
Also known as: Piperine, Bioperine, Black Pepper
Extract that increases the absorption of other nutrients and thermogenesis.
What Is It?
Bioperine is a patented black pepper extract that contains 95% piperine extract.The black pepper fruit is grown in the damp, nutrient-rich soil regions of southern India and berries are harvested just prior to fully ripening. From here it is sun-dried to reach full maturity and ensure optimal quality.
What Does It Do?
Thermogenesis is the metabolic process that generates energy at the cellular level in the human body. It also plays a vital role in the digestion and absorption of food in the body as well. BioPerineenhances the body's natural thermogenic activity which has a two fold effect.
First, increases the amount of thermal energy in the body, leading to an increased metabolic rate (i.e. faster metabolism) that allows you to burn more calories that you would otherwise. Basically, this creates a greater demand in the bodyfor required nutrients in order to maintain homeostasis. Increased metabolic rate can be good for those looking to shed a few extra pounds as your body will naturally be burning through more calories each day.
Second, also enhances the absorption of other ingredients when consumed at the same time. For example, when used as part of a pre workout formula, Bioperine enhances the body's uptake and utilization of all the other various ergogenic aids included in the product. This makes for a much more effective pre workout as the body will maximize it's digestion and absorption of the other ingredients.
Bioperine accomplishes this byinhibiting the body's metabolization of the other ingredients. This enables the other ingredients to stay around longer thereby improving their bioavailability in the body.
Benefits of Bioperine
- Increased thermogenesis
- Elevated Metabolic Rate
- Enhance absorption of other ingredients
- Aid weight loss
Most often, BioPerine will be already included in your pre workout, fat burner, or post workouts. Typically, you'll see doses ranging from 3mg to 10mg depending on the scoop size and how many other active ingredients there are in the product.
