– The Health Dossier with WeAreFeel
What is bioperine?
Bioperine is a proprietary form of piperine, which is a component in black pepper that dramatically improves the bioavailability of turmeric. We also include turmeric in your daily Feel Multivitamin, which means that the addition of cutting-edge bioperine improves this substance’s ability to reduce oxidative stress throughout your body.
Is bioperine water-soluble or fat-soluble?
Piperine has traditionally suffered from low bioavailability, which reduces the efficacy of this substance’s turmeric-boosting effects. Bioperine, however, is a unique piperine formulation that is far more bioavailable than normal piperine. Bioperine boosts piperine’s water solubility, which makes it easier for your body to rapidly absorb this substance.
Where can bioperine be found naturally?
You can consume piperine naturally by ingesting black peppercorns or seasoning your food with ground black pepper. The amount of piperine you absorb when you use pepper for seasoning, however, is much smaller than the amount you absorb when you ingest it in bioavailable bioperine.
What is the recommended daily value for bioperine?
Bioperine is not recognised as an essential nutrient, so there is no recommended daily value for this substance. When you don’t consume piperine, however, the turmeric you eat is far less bioavailable, which significantly hinders the ability of this substance to exert anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
Can you absorb enough of bioperine from food?
Piperine is incredibly difficult to ingest via food. Black pepper is only used sparingly in Western diets, and even when you ingest black pepper, the piperine in this natural substance is not very bioavailable.
Vegans should take piperine and turmeric together to improve immunity and defend against some of the special risks posed to people who do not eat animal products.
Why is bioperine necessary for your body?
Bioperine is the natural counterpart of turmeric. Without piperine, turmeric is almost useless, but as long as you consume plenty of bioperine, the turmeric you ingest is able to reach its full potential. Together with turmeric, bioperine exerts incredibly potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant functions that could add years to your life.
Functions of bioperine
Turmeric booster: Taking piperine with turmeric increases tissue concentrations of this turmeric derivative by over 150%. Some estimates suggest that taking piperine with turmeric may increase this antioxidant’s bioavailability by over 2,000%.
Bioavailability enhancer: Bioperine appears to boost the bioavailability of a wide variety of different vitamins, minerals, and other substances.
Digestive booster: Piperine stimulates the pancreas to produce more digestive enzymes, which helps you derive increased nutritional benefits from your food.
Diabetes reducer: Supplementing with piperine every day appears to reduce blood sugar.
Symptoms of bioperine deficiency
Neither piperine nor bioperine have been recognised as essential nutrients, so it’s not possible to become deficient in this black pepper derivative. At the same time, however, failing to include piperine in your diet means you’re wasting the turmeric you consume, so this substance is, indeed, “essential” if you want to get the most out of the turmeric you eat.
How long do you need to take bioperine to start experiencing its benefits if you’re deficient?
Bioperine is designed for its high bioavailability, which means that this substance should start exerting its beneficial effects almost immediately.
How long does it take for your body to digest/absorb bioperine?
Since it is formulated for high bioavailability, bioperine should absorb through your digestive lining rapidly.
How long does bioperine stay in your body after you take it?
As a water-soluble nutrient, bioperine does not stay in your body for very long.
Is bioperine an antioxidant?
Yes, piperine has antioxidant properties, and it also boosts the antioxidant effects of turmeric to an incredible degree.
Can you overdose on bioperine?
Piperine overdose is incredibly rare. You will not overdose if you take your daily capsule of Feel Multivitamin like you usually do, but if you’re concerned you’ve overdosed on black pepper, contact first responders immediately.
Does bioperine dissolve, flush out, or build up in the body?
Bioperine flushes out of your body relatively rapidly.
Can you take bioperine during a diet?
Bioperine does not interfere with any dietary restrictions. Like all forms of piperine, bioperine is 100% vegan.
Are there synthetic forms of bioperine?
Experiments have been performed to create synthetic forms of piperine, but natural forms of this substance are still more economically viable.
Why might synthetic forms of bioperine be better?
The theoretical benefits of synthetic piperine would most likely be economic.
Absorption rate of synthetic bioperine
Data on the potential absorption rates of synthetic piperine are not available.
Why might natural forms of bioperine be better?
Bioperine is the most bioavailable natural form of piperine ever devised. It’s possible that an even more bioavailable form of natural piperine may be developed in the future, but at present, bioperine is the best piperine product on the market in every conceivable category.
How to take bioperine
You can only consume bioperine by consuming a supplement that contains this next-generation ingredient such as Feel Multivitamin. You can consume raw piperine by ingesting whole black pepper grounds or enjoying ground black pepper with meals. The bioavailability of the raw piperine in black pepper, however, is far lesser than that of bioperine.
Bioperine trends in medicine
Recently, researchers used bioperine as a bioavailability-booster in a study of the effects of turmeric on anxiety. While the researchers ended up determining that turmeric does not reduce anxiety, it’s still encouraging to see that an increasing number of research facilities are becoming aware of the bioavailability benefits of bioperine.
Why everyone should be taking WeAreFeel supplements
It’s only recently come to light that turmeric is practically useless without piperine, but already, people are ditching their turmeric root and getting onboard with WeAreFeel’s new Feel Multivitamin. Now with 5mg of bioperine per daily capsule, our re-envisioned multivitamin offers bioavailability-boosted turmeric that may be as much as 2000% more effective.
Nothing is too good for our WeAreFeel warriors, which is why we pulled out all the stops with our new multivitamin formulation. As the supplement industry continues to evolve, so will we— come along with us for the ride!
