Black pepper contains a bioactive compound called piperine, which has shown promising anti-cancer properties in some studies. Additionally, it is rich in antioxidants that may help protect cells from oxidative damage, potentially reducing the risk of cancer development.
Piperine Content: Black pepper contains piperine, a compound that has shown some promise in enhancing the bioavailability of certain nutrients, such as curcumin in turmeric. Curcumin has been studied for its potential anti-cancer properties, and piperine may help increase its effectiveness when consumed together.
Antioxidant Properties: Black pepper contains antioxidants that can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, which are implicated in cancer development. While the levels of antioxidants in black pepper are relatively low compared to other foods like fruits and vegetables, they may still contribute to overall antioxidant intake.
Potential Synergistic Effects: Some research suggests that combining black pepper with other anti-cancer foods or spices, like turmeric, may enhance their potential health benefits. Piperine in black pepper is believed to improve the absorption of curcumin in turmeric, which is known for its potential anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

Research: Obviously, food choices and diet are critical to a healthy everyday life, and even more so when fighting cancer at any stage. Now, after a decade of cancer-specific nutrition research and our own FightBack Foods® products development, we are more convinced than ever that intentional nutrition is imperative for any cancer battle. Importantly, our research over the past decade drove us to appreciate more than ever that naturally occurring nutrients found in a variety of foods, can greatly assist in the battle against cancer.
Thus, we have attached primarily PUBMED sourced information about each ingredient used in our first product - FightBack Foods® Bites, and some of the relevant research that rationalizes each one’s use in our products. Even if you don’t buy our bites, please see the many benefits associated with each ingredient we use, and perhaps find some way to incorporate them into a daily diet with relevant nutrients necessary to assist in anyone’s fight against cancer.
PUBMED: PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics.
