Chili Peppers Fountain of Youth?

The other day I was admiring a friends photo and noticed how youthful she looked in her 50's.  I asked her for her beauty secrets and she stated that it was from eating chili peppers.  So I set out to see if there was any truth to this.  Below is what I found.

Seven reasons to turn up the heat in your next meal with chili peppers.

1. Fight Cancer
2. Provide Pain Relief
3. Prevent Sinusitis and Relieve Congestion
4. Fight Inflammation
5. Soothe Intestinal Diseases
6. Burn Fat and Lose Weight
7. Protect Your Heart


So with these information I'm going to make sure I eat lots of chili peppers.  ;)


  1. Well then Gail my husband will not have any problems since he loves chili!!!

    I wish I could hide the heat and eat more of them.
    Thanks for this information.


  2. That's great news! =) I'm not a huge pepper fan...but it's good info to have.

  3. i started eating this a few years ago..... we now grow like 10 plants every year. we have enough to make lbs of hot sauce it's great!

  4. Omg...that's great. I love hots of any kind :-) The Jamaican blood in my veins lol. Next you might wanna check out the good that garlic does...
