Black Pepper has been deemed the “king of spices” and used in ancient Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years due to its high concentration of potent, beneficial plant compounds.
Black pepper is rich in a potent antioxidant called piperine, which may help prevent or delay the damaging effects of free radicals to your cells.
Black pepper also increases the absorption of essential nutrients, such as calcium and selenium, and beneficial plant compounds.
Sweet potato is a great source of complex carbohydrate, which is low on the glycaemic index, meaning that it provides sustainable energy.
Sweet potatoes are also rich in fibre, helping your body process the sugars, resulting in a steady supply of energy, for longer periods.
They also contain high levels of Potassium, a mineral that plays a big role in muscle control, electrolyte balance and nerve function.
Sweet potatoes also contain vitamin C which helps to prevent muscle catabolism (the breakdown of muscle tissue).
Broccoli is a good source of fibre and protein, and contains iron, potassium, calcium, selenium and magnesium as well as the vitamins A, C, E, K and a good array of B vitamins including folic acid.
On top of all the vitamins and minerals it contains, broccoli is chock full of many natural chemicals. Among these is a sulphur compound called sulphoraphane, which may help with certain health conditions, including: diabetes, cancer, and osteo-arthritis.
