This fabulous spice has been the subject of battles fought in history. It packs a punch by providing the body manganese, vitamins C and K, iron, fibre and potassium. It also discourages intestinal gas from forming, and as a bonus, the outer layer of the peppercorn aids in the break-down of fat cells. It warms the body so it promotes sweating, which helps rid the body of toxins. It has antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it an amazing medicinal spice. Another winter warmer!
