6 Health Benefits of White Pepper (Safed Mirch) 


White pepper, also known as ‘safed mirch’, has several health advantages that people often neglect. White pepper helps to relieve many common problems that bother our bodies, from headaches to heart issues.  Here are 6 health benefits of consuming white pepper:

Helps in Cough

Since white pepper is a spicy food by nature, the heat it produces helps open up the nasal passages and relieve congestion. White pepper acts as an antibiotic and fights nasal tract infections when coupled with raw honey, relieving cough and cold symptoms.

Improves Eyesight

The majority of granny’s recipes use white pepper as an ingredient that helps with vision. The spice’s intensity can be reduced by combining it with sugar and almond powder.

Helps in Weight loss

The presence of capsaicin aids in weight loss by burning body fat.


It aids in digestion and the treatment of digestive issues.

Strengthens Bones

Rich in minerals including magnesium, copper, and manganese, white pepper helps strengthen bones, especially in ageing women whose bones weaken with age.

Skin Care

Crushed white pepper is a great exfoliant that leaves your skin feeling smooth and free of dead skin cells.
