How does Indian Long Pepper work?

Indian long pepper contains a chemical called piperine. Piperine may be able to fight certain parasites that can infect people. It also seems to change the lining of the intestines. This change allows some drugs and other substances taken by mouth to be better absorbed by the body.

Are there safety concerns?

There isn't enough information to know if Indian long pepper is safe for use as a medicine.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of Indian long pepper during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
