Why is black pepper good for you?

What's so good about black pepper? So I was doing some research on the benefits of black pepper and I thought I would share what I found.

*Black pepper contains very potent solar energy, and is a powerful digestive stimulant. It also stimulates the plasma and the blood, the nervous system, the spleen, and reduces fat.

*It is beneficial for chronic indigestion, helps with toxins in the colon, sinus congestion, and can stimulate circulation to help warm cold hands and feet.

Black pepper can be taken as a spice, an oil, a tea, or a compress.

I don't know about you, but I'm going to start adding black pepper to my meals starting today.

Caution: Overuse of stimulant herbs can impair your body's natural balancing systems.

I have been increasing the amount of pepper I use, but did not know that too much of it could cause a problem. Thank you for this information.

My dad always told me at the dinner table that you can overdose on salt, but you can never have enough pepper. Therefore I have drenched my food in pepper (salads, soup, meat) and have never noticed a problem from "too much".
