You may recall reading in Health Watch that eating hot peppers may help lower your death risk by 14%.1 The compound that gives them their heat—capsaicin—even fights colorectal cancer.2
But that’s not all it does…
In 2006, researchers genetically modified mice to develop human prostate cancer cells. Then they fed them large doses of capsaicin.The highest doses slowed the growth of cancerous cells. And they left healthy cells unharmed. That’s because it knows how to target—and rip apart—the protective membrane of cancer cells only.3
But Big Pharma caught wind of these findings… Now they’re trying to figure out how to turn capsaicin into a drug.
Just recently, scientists in India confirmed capsaicin latches on to the cell membrane of cancerous cells. Then it causes them to disintegrate.4
We can expect to see more studies like these as researchers attempt to create injections and pills from capsaicin.5 If and when they come out, they won’t be the same as the natural compound. They’ll be full of lab-concocted ingredients. And who knows what side effects they’ll come with…
Our advice? Add fresh or dried hot peppers to your meals. Jalapeños are a good place to start. You can try habaneros if you’re more adventurous. You can also sprinkle cayenne powder on the healthy foods you already eat.
Getting more capsaicin from your diet is one way to support your prostate health—and prevent cancer—right now. But it’s going to take more than that if you really want to protect your prostate…
