Black pepper used in excess can increase the blood pressure in long run. In short run it may seem to reduce the blood pressure. Long back we used to have a restaurant. Once the chief cook remarked that in case we hire some body for kitchen without their consent he can do some magic so that bread will not stick in the tandoor (earthen oven used in India). I said this is simple. I do not believe in magics. So you will use some spice which is available in kitchen. Black pepper has the smallest particle size. So if you add ground black pepper in water and apply to paste to the wall of tandoor the holes in the walls will be filled up and the bread will not stick since there will be no place to create vacuum. Same thing happens in our food pipe. When we consume lot of ground black pepper, it sticks inside the food pipe. After that no food will stick in the intestines. Causing the food and water to travel small intestines faster. That will not allow the water to be absorbed in the small intestines. That will cause reduction in the blood volume. That will cause reduction in blood pressure. That is what happens in short term. Now continued use of black paper will cause more water to reach large intestines. That will cause more fluids to be absorbed and sent to cells and space between cells. What will cause low metabolic rate as well thickening of the walls of arteries. That will reduce the dia of the arteries making it narrow. So in long run blood pressure will increase. Otherwise also when lesser minerals and nutrients are absorbed in small intestines the metabolic rate will fall causing heart to have lesser energy to push the fluids into cells for metabolic process resulting in huge fluid overload. That is a vicious cycle. Same results have been reported by people who use black pepper for better immunity and respiratory problems. Initial results are good and after wards they are drained of energy and have lot of side effects. So be cautious. Whatever seems to be cure in short run will be deadly in long run.
