patients are advised to keep away or to reduce consumption to lowest
quantity.However surprising thing is that many do not know that chilli
pepper actually helps in ulcer prevention.Yes!
How?I know you just asked that question in your mind.True or false?...
Not only do they not cause ulcers, they can help prevent them by
killing bacteria you may have ingested, while stimulating the cells
lining the stomach to secrete protective buffering juices.
Check out the following amazing benefits of chilli pepper:
Chili peppers contain a substance called capsaicin, which gives peppers
their characteristic pungence, producing mild to intense spice when
eaten. Capsaicin is a potent inhibitor of substance P, a neuropeptide
associated with inflammatory processes. The hotter the chili pepper, the
more capsaicin it contains.
Natural Pain Relief
capsaicin is now a recognized treatment option for osteoarthritis pain.
Several review studies of pain management for diabetic neuropathy have
listed the benefits of topical capsaicin to alleviate disabling pain
associated with this condition.
Help Stop the Spread of Prostate Cancer
Red chili peppers' capsaicin, the compound responsible for their
pungent heat, stops the spread of prostate cancer cells through a
variety of mechanisms, indicates a study published in the March 15, 2006
issue of Cancer Research.Capsaicin triggers suicide in both primary
types of prostate cancer cell lines, those whose growth is stimulated by
male hormones and those not affected by them. In addition, capsaicin
lessens the expression of prostate-specific antigen (PSA),inhibits the
ability of the most potent form of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, to
activate PSA, and directly inhibits PSA transcription, causing PSA
levels to plummet.
The dose effective for test animals was
equivalent to 400 milligrams of capsaicin, three times a week, for a man
weighing about 200 pounds. After four weeks of receiving capsaicin,
prostate cancer tumor growth and size decreased significantly in the

know that many of us must have experienced this several times.When that
food is 'peppery' you tend to blow your nose more and you discover that

incorporate chilli pepper and soon you d experience free nose.Capsaicin
not only reduces pain, but its peppery heat also stimulates secretions
that help clear mucus from your stuffed up nose or congested lungs.
All that heat you feel after eating hot chili peppers takes energy—and
calories to produce. Even sweet red peppers have been found to contain
substances that significantly increase thermogenesis (heat production)
and oxygen consumption for more than 20 minutes after they are eaten.
Researchers found that DCT in capsule form acts similarly to capsaicin,
minus the fiery sensation. In a small study, people who took it while
following a high-protein, very low-calorie diet for a month burned about
an extra 100 calories per day. However, they didn't lose more weight
than people taking a placebo pill, perhaps because their diet was
already very low in calories. Larger, longer studies are needed to check
