Piperine, also known as bioperine, is an alkaloid originally isolated from black pepper (Piper nigrum) and later found to occur in other species, such as long pepper (Piper longum). It is commonly used as a health or nutritional supplement, and can enhance the absorption or oral bioavailability of other diet supplements, such as curcumin. Piperine can elevate anandamide levels in the brain, act as an MAOI, increase production of serotonin and dopamine, and can have anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant effects.
It may have usage in medicine, due to its medicinal effects on its own or its ability to enhance the potency of other substances.
