About black pepper

Black pepper is a flowering vine of the pepper family native to southern India. Used as a table condiment for centuries, black pepper is the ground unripened fruit of the plant. The peppercorn. The world’s most traded spice, black pepper has been used in Indian cooking for thousands of years.

And now, believe it or not, black pepper for dogs is being used in homemade dog food!

Benefits of black pepper for dogs

Ground black pepper contains moderate amounts of vitamin K, iron, manganese and piperine. Piperine increases a dog’s ability to absorb selenium, vitamin B12, beta-carotene and curcumin. That’s where the spice’s real benefits lie. In the case of curcumin for example, it is said to increase the body’s ability to absorb curcumin by up to 2000%!

Curcumin is of course the active ingredient in the turmeric used in my Joint Support for Dogs.

It’s this ability to help your dog absorb curcumin that makes black pepper particularly beneficial to your best friend.

Although not essential to a dog’s diet, black pepper for dogs also has antibacterial properties and helps with digestion.

That’s why I, as a canine nutritionist, recommend adding it to your dog’s homemade dog food.
