It’s time to take a tried and true cliché and turn it UPSIDE down.
You’ve heard that old saw about variety being the spice of life, right? Well, new research finds there’s a very REAL “spice of life” out there.
But it’s not variety. Instead, it’s an ACTUAL spice… specifically the one that turns up the heat in some of your favorite meals.
It turns out a special compound locked inside chili peppers has an incredible effect inside your body. It could quite literally help you live longer.
New research shows how this chili pepper extract can deliver the ultimate health benefit. It can help fight off today’s top killers and possibly add YEARS to your life.
For a longer life… turn up the heat
What makes this new study so remarkable is that it didn’t look at folks in a single place.
When that happens, there’s always a chance there might be some other overlooked factor that folks have in common. So, there’d be no way to say for sure if it was chili peppers delivering the magic, for example.
But in this case, the study looked at people in entirely different parts of the world: The United States, Italy, China, and Iran. Each of the countries has very different types of cuisines, and they tend to use different kinds of chili peppers.
Yet, despite their location, overall diet, or race, the folks who ate the most chili peppers had better overall health and lived longer.
More specifically, eating chili peppers was linked to a lower risk of death from…
- HEART PROBLEMS by 26 percent
- CANCER by 23 percent
- EVERYTHING by 25 percent
And as incredible as those numbers are, it’s not the first time we’ve found that chili peppers pack some BIG health benefits.
Live longer and better with chili pepper extract
Chili peppers contain a potent compound called capsaicin. The extract has been proven to fight inflammation.
And as I’ve explained before, inflammation is at the heart of some of today’s top killers, such as heart disease and cancer. Plus, it’s a driving factor behind other chronic conditions, including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and more.
But that’s NOT all. Capsaicin is basically a death sentence for some cancer cells. The compound attacks the mutant cells from the inside, forcing them to essentially commit suicide.
In other words, chili peppers basically have the power to help SAVE your life. But, it turns out they can CHANGE your life, too.
Studies show capsaicin can turn up the heat on your metabolism, helping to burn off fat and speed weight loss. Which if you’re anything like me, you sure could use to help you shed some of those extra pandemic pounds. Plus, chili peppers contain heart-healthy potassium and digestion-friendly fiber.
The only downside to hot peppers is… well… they’re hot.
Now admittedly, some people love the heat. And if YOU enjoy a good burn, then go ahead and add peppers to your meals and use as much chili sauce as your taste buds can handle.
Can’t take the heat? Capsaicin supplements are available, too.
Oh, and there’s one last capsaicin benefit you can enjoy without lighting your lips on fire. And that’s pain relief. The chili pepper extract is a key ingredient in some of the best topical pain-fighting formulas out there. It can help ease back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and more.
Look for capsaicin in a formula with other proven pain fighters such as MSM and menthol.
