Research from this team and others has shown that piperine can increase the bioavailability of different drugs and chemicals (e.g., rifampicin, oxytetracycline, carbamazepine, curcumin, nevirapine, epigallocatechin-3-gallate) from 30 to 200% (11, 12, 13), which drugs include antituberculars, leprostatic agents, antibiotics, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (e.g., nimesulide, diclofenac sodium, ibuprofen), as well as those that act on the central nervous system (e.g., carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital) and the cardiovascular system (e.g., propranolol, atenolol) (14); curcumin bioavailability has been shown to increase an amazing 2000% when administered concomitantly with piperine (15).
