If you like to season your food with black pepper, then you’ll love what else black pepper can do for you. A new study says that black pepper may help fat fight; and not by sneezing it away! However, the same ingredient in black pepper that makes you sneeze may help keep you slim.
The ingredient is called piperine and fights fat by blocking the formation of new fat cells; according to a preliminary new study. Researchers say that if further studies confirm these effects, it may offer a natural alternative for the treatment of fat-related disorders like obesity.
