Alzheimer’s Disease: A study found that pepper can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease which is a degenerative brain disease.
Depression: “If you are feeling down lately, your brain may be missing its happy chemical, serotonin, studies have suggested the active ingredient piperine in pepper helps in the release of the feel-good chemical and makes your blues go away”.

Seizures: A study found out that the piperine in pepper can control the flow of calcium which can cause nerve cells to release neurotransmitters and pepper also help in protecting nerve cells.
