While many of us use Black pepper in all of our dishes, we rarely are told about the special health benefits that come with it. To begin, it is high in antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, may improve blood sugar control, and may lower cholesterol levels. With its subtle and bold flavor pepper can enhance any savory dish.
