Organic Chilies Yellow Habanero - 100g
Why are they good for you?
If you are looking for a blistering hot pepper you have found it. This incredibly hot pepper is around 40 times hotter than a Jalapeno. The small 1-inch long and 1 ½ inch wide pepper is wrinkled and thin-walled. It is acorn-shaped and tapered at the end and grows on 36-inch high plants.
1. Lower your cholesterol
Eating these terrifyingly tasty treats has been shown to lower bad cholesterol. In a 1985 study published in “Artery” it was shown that the capsaicin in habaneros reduced cholesterol in young female rabbits.
2. Reduce blood pressure
The capsaicin in habaneros also has been shown to also reduce high blood pressure. Apparently, capsaicin stimulates the increase of the insulin-like growth factor IGF-I which reduces blood pressure.
3. Fights weight gain
Can capsaicin help you control your weight? It sure can! Capsaicin increases thermogenesis throughout the body. The process of thermogenesis is what is involved in the raising and lowering of body temperature and if you increase that, you increase metabolism.
4. Cancer prevention
Because of the combinations of high content of vitamins C and A and capsaicin, this little pepper can prevent cancer in a big way by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells (particularly prostate) and by preventing the negative effects of free radicals.
