Axi, sive Equei Piper Indicum.


Decorative copper print of medical plants of indian pepper. Western scientists have found that the digestive effect is related to the main active ingredient piperine. It stimulates the receptors in the mouth, so that the secretion of saliva and gastric juice is promoted and the food is digested more easily. For this reason, pepper should not be used more often. A dish that is too peppery no longer tastes good. And the rule does not always apply: a lot helps a lot. The recipes in the mouth do not like excessive irritation and feel stimulated even with small amounts of pepper.
