Chilli pepper helps to reduce the risk of death from all causes by 25%

The use of chili pepper reduces the risk of a number of fatal diseases - this conclusion was reached by experts from the American Heart Association. The study analyzed data from more than half a million participants in 4,729 studies conducted in different countries. Specialists analyzed data on health status, eating habits, as well as age and cause of death in situations where only the dead participants were involved. It turned out that chili pepper fans were less likely to suffer from heart disease and cancer, and less likely to die from these pathologies.

Experts compared the data on the health of participants who ate chili peppers on a regular basis with the health status of those people who ate this product rarely or never included it in their diet. It was found that regular consumption of stinging fruit contributed to the reduction of deaths from heart disease by 26%, deaths from cancer by 23%, deaths from all causes by 25%.

Previously, it was found that the healing properties of chilli pepper is due to the presence of the substance capsaicin, which has anti-inflammatory. antioxidant and anti-cancer effect. Capsaicin also has the ability to regulate blood sugar levels.

- We were surprised to find that regular consumption of chili peppers was associated with an overall reduction in the risk of death from all causes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. This underscores that dietary factors can play an important role in maintaining health," commented one of the authors, Dr. Bo Xu from the Heart and Vascular Institute at the Cleveland Clinic (USA).

At the same time, experts emphasize that in different studies analyzed, participants ate different amounts of chilli peppers. Therefore, the expert will have to conduct additional experiments to determine which amount of spice has the best effect on health and reduces the risk of death.
