Chillies and Health

While doing some research for an article I came across a few capsaicin related health information that you may find interesting:-

  • Test on mice showed that capsaicin triggered 80% of  prostrate cancer cells to start the process leading to cell death.
  • Research in the US Journal of Cancer Research showed tumours treated with capsaicin where smaller?
  • The antioxident Quercetin found in chilli peppers (and apples, broccoli etc) can help in certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders.
  • A study at the University of Cincinnati found that a nasal spray derived from hot chillies can help clear up some types of sinus inflammation.
  • Capsaicin is used in some temporary pain relief products.
