Daily Health Tips: Should Women Eat Alligator Pepper?


Q: Dr is there any side effect eating alligator pepper as a woman?

A: Good question. Alligator pepper is a spice used commonly in pepper soup, as an accompaniment to kolanut and garden eggs (egg plant) especially in Ibo land. It is touted as having quite a number of health benefits. However, a study carried out in 2009 by Inegbenebor et al, suggests that its excessive use in the first trimester of pregnancy may pose a health risk to women.

What’s a little, what’s a lot? 😉 I suggest that you leave well alone during the period of pregnancy.

Have a good weekend, y’all 😀
