Ll Longpepper  

Long pepper (Piper longum), (Pippali), sometimes called Indian long pepper, is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning.

The Ayurvedic texts list pippali as one of the most powerful Rasayana herbs, meaning it believed to be a longevity enhancer and is a remedy for throat irritation.
