Chillies for Health

We often see articles on the Internet that deal with the positive health benefits of curry ingredients. Often it is curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, which is found to be good for us.

But the latest piece of good news is about capsaicin, the heat-giving component of chillies.

Research has found that capsaicin reduces bad cholesterol levels and also let more blood pass through blood vessels. Now that’s a double whammy that has us all smiling. Bad cholesterol blocks blood vessels so anything that reduces cholesterol is a good thing. And letting more blood pass through is also good for the heart.

You can now be sure that eating a curry that contains chilli peppers is doing you some good as well as tasting great.
