15. It prevents dental issues
We all want our teeth to look great but even more, we want them healthy. For sure, if you’ve ever suffered from a toothache or even gum disease, you will understand the value of dental health even more. The anti-inflammatory properties found in black pepper helps in the treatment of gum inflammation. Some massaging mixtures meant to relieve oral infections or toothache contain black pepper in them. Just mixing black pepper with salt and water could go a long way in ensuring the affected gums feel better. For a toothache, you could mix it with clove oil instead in order to get the most benefit.
