Arthritis: Piperine Treatment for Pain

By    |   Saturday, 19 September 2015 12:28 AM EDT

Typically joint pain caused by arthritis is treated with anti-inflammatory medications, although some look to such organic remedies as piperine instead.

With a growing number of people concerned about the side effects of arthritis medications, they may find piperine to be an alternative. Studies indicate that the plant decreases inflammation and can be a safe treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.

People are most familiar with piperine for the spicy taste it provides in table pepper, Bottom Line reported. It is also the ingredient that makes you sneeze when you get too large of a sniff of it.

This plant is a main part of the piper species, according to the NCBI. It is also an alkaloid that people have used for centuries to help with inflammation and especially to assist with pain in rheumatoid arthritis.

Bottom Line also noted that the plant can help with osteoarthritis by destroying inflammation in cells of cartilage.

Piperine comes from the peppercorns of the piper nigrum evergreen typically found in India. These are plucked prior to ripening and heated until they shrivel and turn black, Turmeric for Health noted.

Even at low doses, this active phenolic compound in black pepper extract decreases the creation of prostaglandin, which contributes to inflammation, Natural News reported.

While some piperine is found in the typical table pepper, individuals can get more of it as well as avoid extra additives by purchasing black peppercorns and grinding it themselves, according to Natural News.

Bottom Line noted that people should be wary of adding the spice while heating, however, as the benefits of piperine decrease the longer it is exposed to heat.

ArthritisCure.me added that supplements called BioPerine can also be purchased as capsules and be taken once or twice a day.

Even with these benefits, people should consult a doctor prior to taking peperine. If used with other medications, it could present a possible health danger, ArthritisCure.me notes.

According to Natural News, beyond arthritis, peperine has been used to promote health in people with diabetes, cancer, and other diseases.
