Sure, it might be cold outside. But there’s a way to crank up the heat INSIDE without even touching the thermostat.
It doesn’t use electricity. There’s no wood to chop. And you won’t need a drop of heating oil, either.
This is another kind of heat. It’s the kind you get from chili peppers.
And it turns out this sweet heat can do more than add zing to your dinner plate and warm you up on the inside. It could help add YEARS to your life.
And don’t worry if you aren’t a fan or you can’t take the heat. I’ve got the secret to getting the same life-extending benefits of chili peppers without having to eat all those spicy foods.
What chili peppers can do for your health
Chili peppers get their heat from an ingredient called capsaicin. This compound is practically a miracle by almost any definition of the word.
The capsaicin from hot peppers can help…
- ease pain
- control blood sugar
- speed weight loss
- fight inflammation
- block cancer
With benefits like that, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the new study finds even MORE reasons to eat hot peppers. Researchers have found the compounds in the peppers can help protect against just about EVERYTHING trying to kill you.
Eating chili peppers just four times a week can cut your risk of death from…
- heart attack by 44 percent
- cardiovascular disease by 34 percent
- cerebrovascular disease by 61 percent
- all causes by 23 percent
In other words, a regular chili pepper habit could end up adding YEARS to your life.
HOT health benefits for EVERYONE
But here’s the MOST incredible thing about this research. The study finds that ANYONE who eats chili peppers will get the benefits.
If you’re already healthy, peppers can help keep you that way. And if you’re not – if you don’t have the best health habits – peppers can still give you some protection and cut all of those risks.
This study doesn’t mean you should load up on fast food and expect protection if you toss a few chili peppers into the bun.
But it does show you don’t have to be Captain Perfect to enjoy real and lasting benefits. And even if you aren’t on your best behavior all the time, you can STILL get some protection from today’s top killers.
Since capsaicin is ALSO what’s responsible for giving peppers their heat, you’ll find more of it in the hottest peppers, including habanero and tabasco peppers.
If you like it when your food has a little burn to it, that’s great news. But if you’re not into spicy foods, you can also get capsaicin in a supplement.
For pain relief, this chili pepper extract is available in topical creams. And for all of the other health benefits, look for capsaicin in a capsule form.
