  • Gulp or chew directly: Those who can tolerate the burning hot flavor of black pepper can consume 1-2 peppercorns directly every morning. This will rev up your metabolism.
  • Black pepper tea: Add a dash of freshly ground black pepper in tea.
  • Sprinkle it over fruit and vegetable salad: Use black pepper as a seasoning and simply sprinkle it over your favourite salad. This not only adds an extra flavor to your plate but also aids in weight loss.
  • Add it your everyday beverage: A pinch of black pepper powder over a buttermilk recipe or summer refreshing masala-mint-lemonade goes a long way in not only shredding extra pounds, but also for a healthy gut and immunity.
  • Black pepper oil: Add a drop of 100 per cent pure black pepper oil in a glass of plain water and consume it before breakfast or else using it as a salad dressing is another option.
