My mother always gave me 2-3 large PEPPERCORNS, not some processed lab medicine. Go to the super market and get large BLACK PEPPERCORNS (no bigger than corn kernels) and take 2-3 for stomach upset. I don't always get stomach upset but when i do, i just take the peppercorns like i would any other pill. Works everytime!!! Best home remedy for stomach upset, never tried it for heartburn, maybe next t...

I have been taking a product that contains black pepper extract as one of 6 ingredients to help with cortisol production. It has given me dyspepsia over the month that I have used it and was a bit scary because I never had heartburn this bad before. I was scared it was my heart or something. Pain in my chest, ribs, back and up into shoulder, even in to the ear.

IMHO, to make the statement that there's evidence linking black pepper to cancer and not provide a link to the peer reviewed article or a reference to the peer reviewed study, is an act of scientific incompetence.
