Health benefits of the Jalapeno Chili pepper

Chilies contain a substance called capsaicin, which you will have heard of before if you read my article called “Habanero peppers – a cure for cancer?

In that article, a man fed himself on habanero peppers for several days and watched his stage 4 cancer disappear.  Whether capsaicin in the habaneros was responsible for his miraculous recovery or not, it has certainly been shown to affect cancer cells in the laboratory.  As I was researching this substance, I found an interesting article called “Top 6 Health Benefits of Jalapeno Unveiled”.

That article discusses 6 health benefits of the Jalapeno chili pepper, namely:

  1. Relief of migraines
  2. Help with Sinusitis and congestion
  3. Fight cancer
  4. Cardiovascular health
  5. Anti-inflammatory
  6. Aid in weight loss
