Chili pepper consumption could help you live longer

hot-red-pepper Chili pepper report The American Heart Association said “research has suggested that regular chili pepper consumers could have longer lifespans due to the fruit’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer and blood-glucose regulating properties. These factors play a role in reducing a person’s risk of dying from a cardiovascular disease or cancer.

570,000 health records were included in these studies, which included people from the U.S., Italy, China and Iran. The people who ate chili peppers regularly had a 26% relative reduction in cardiovascular mortality; 23% relative reduction in cancer mortality; and 25% relative reduction in all-cause mortality.

  1. I have long thought that hot-spicy food was sort of a cure-all. Nothing like a burrito with hot-sauce to take care of GI distress (or at least give you a reason to feel miserable). Runny nose, how about curry! I can’t say that I have any science behind this, but pass the Cajun seasoning. – Oscar


  2. Hi Pobept, I just wanted to reach out and thank you for following my Verdant Garden posts and always the first to “like” my posts. I really appreciate your support and encouragement!


  3. Wow, that’s quite a case for eating peppers. I just made Chili with jalapenos and ghost pepper. It also turns one into a fire breathing dragon


  4. That’s good to know. I’ll just double up on my Gaviscon. LOL.


  5. Funny enough, we’ve been adding chili pepper into more of our meals this past year. Our menu has changed slightly with all of the family home and at least one person able to spend the time to make whole food dinners. Glad to hear of this little benefit, too!
