The Jalapeno is a hot pepper that scores 2,500 to 3,000 heat units in the Scoville Heat Index. For those people who want the food they eat to be very hot and stimulating, it is a favorite for those looking for a natural prostate supplement.
However, besides giving life to food, it actually has a lot of health benefits. More specifically, the capsaicin it contains, can give you a lot of it.
Here are some of the examples:
Capsaicin can help prevent sinusitis and relieve congestion. Everyone misses the times when their noses weren’t blocked or runny when they actually have their noses blocked and runny.
Capsaicin is there to save the day. It can also fight migraine headaches and sinus headaches – or headaches in general. It provides a pain relief since it is known to lessen the production of a key neuropeptide, called substance P, which is the main brain pain transmitter. It’s like a pain reliever.
Capsaicin is also a strong anti-inflammatory agent. Once again, substance P which is associated with the process of inflammation, is inhibited. It works in the same way as it helps relieve headache.
Capsaicin is also a natural H. pylori killer, the main culprit of ulcers. This type of bacteria eats away the thin ‘cover’ of the lining in your stomach that protects it from the acidic gastric juices. Thus, it can be a good prevention method for those who don’t want a hole in their stomach.
Capsaicin is thermogenic. What does thermogenic mean? Thermogenic substances actually stimulate the body’s burning of fat by increasing the metabolism of the body’s adipose tissue – which is actually fat, generating heat. Jalapenos can be added to the diet of those having a diet. It also protects your heart. How sweet. No, hot. Well, it reduces cholesterol, triglycerides and platelet aggregation. It can also help dissolve fibrin, which causes blood clots. This makes it capable of reducing risks of heart attacks and strokes.
Back to Jalapeno. Eating it can help in lowering high blood pressure since it is naturally high in Vitamins A and C and bioflavonoids that help strengthen our blood vessels and make them more elastic increasing their ability to adjust to blood pressure fluctuations. Other uses of Jalapeno? Oh, they keep your feet warm. No, you don’t eat it. You actually put it in your shoes. Sprinkle a bit of chili powder in your shoes. Winter is coming. Oh, it’s already winter.
If you don’t like the burn of jalapenos but still want the benefits of this natural prostate supplement, taking jalapenos in capsule form. All the benefits, without the burn.
