Some people can’t get enough of the painful pleasure of spicy foods. Now, new research on hamsters suggests that those who like it hot may get some added heart-health benefits from capsaicinoids, the compounds that give chili peppers from jalepenos to habaneros their kick.
Scientists from the Chinese University of Hong Kong studied how capsaicinoids — capsaicin and its chemical relatives — affected the blood vessels of hamsters. Researchers fed hamsters diets high in cholesterol, and spiced up the food for some groups of the animals with varying levels of capsaicinoids.
It is no accident that “hot” peppers are the backbone of Central- and South American indigenous cuisines. They “love” heat.
The capsicum genus, a branch of the solanaceas family, contains 31 known species, only five of which are domesticated.
Over centuries, these five species travelled from their ancestral places of origin to near and far, and everywhere they were manipulated by framers and shaped by “terroir” to produce a kaleidoscopic array of sub-varieties/
The major pepper originated from capsicum cumonnuum which itself evolved from devilishly hot anonymous peppers long forgotten.
Then there are capsicums chinense, capsicum baccatum, capsicum pubescens and others.
All capsicums are fruits with lustrous skins and ribbed and seed-filled interior.
It has long been thought that spicy foods help to speed up your metabolism, but the information on how and how long has been varied and remained somewhat unclear. It is thought the main element that gives chilis their heat – capsaicin – is responsible for creating this effect, as it creates heat generation and raises body temperature upon consumption.
What Is Metabolism?
Metabolism is the amount of energy or calories needed by your body to maintain itself throughout the day. Everyone’s metabolism is affected by their body composition so that people with more muscles will have a higher metabolism, while those that are less muscular have a lower metabolism.
A person with a higher metabolism (due to working out and greater muscle mass) will be able to eat more calories daily than another person with the same weight and height that does not workout or have the same amount of muscle mass. Though there are several ways that are said to increase metabolism, the most well-documented way to increase your metabolism is to workout with strength training exercises. Because of the fact that muscle is a more efficient calorie burner than fat, the more you have, the better off you will be.

Chile Peppers, These fruits are made spicy by the fat-soluble molecule called capsaicin. This molecule is absorbed by fat. If you add chili powder to oil and vinegar, the fat in the oil absorbs all of the capsaicin. It’s why a mouthful of guacamole or milk will cool down a burning mouth, while water or beer is unable to put out the fire.

Oncogene targeting is a frequent strategy in cancer research. In the July 13, 2011 , issue of Nature, scientists reported preclinical successes using a different strategy: by targeting what they termed a non-oncogene co-dependency. “Normal cells become tumor cells through a variety of genetic alterations,” said co-author Anna Mandinova, explaining the co-dependency concept. Most often, those genetic alterations are mutations, though other changes such as insertions and deletions also occur. By the time it starts dividing uncontrollably, a tumor cell has picked up an average of eight to 12 such mutations. Targeted therapies on the market today usually target such oncogenes directly. But the mutated genes are not the only ones whose expression levels change in cancerous cells. A tumor cell undergoes metabolic changes, and is in a hostile environment of low oxygen and nutrients. And “in order to survive these changes,” Mandinova explained, “the cell . . . starts to overexpress or underexpress housekeeping genes.”

Eating even one meal that contains capsaicin—the compound that gives hot sauce and chile peppers their heat—not only reduces levels of hunger-causing ghrelin, but also raises GLP-1, an appetite-suppressing hormone, indicates research in the European Journal of Nutrition.
Scientists also found that people who drank capsaicin-spiced tomato juice before each meal over the course of two days ingested 16% fewer calories than those who drank it plain.

On a pepper-harvesting excursion across North America, a chef and an ethnobotanist find that climate change is altering peppers and affecting the people who pick them. Host Bruce Gellerman talks with the duo, Chef Kurt Michael Friese and Professor Gary Paul Nabhan, about their book Chasing Chiles, and samples a few spicy fruits in the process.
In recent years, the field of cancer research has shifted toward natural solutions for treatment and prevention because they have fewer dangerous side effects to the human body. With this is mind, the hypothesis of this experiment was that the level of “hotness,” or capsaicin level, of a hot pepper, would correlate to cancer cell killing activity.
Chili peppers bring a lot more to the table than just spiciness. Capsaicin present in chilies, has many health benefits. Unlike its name, Chili pepper is not a native of Chile but has its origin in Central and South America. Botanically termed Capsicum, they belong to the family Solanaceae which has potato and tomato as its members. They are widely used by the entire world be it in the spicy Mexican cuisine or a smoldering Indian curry or a red hot Thai dish. It is the form of usage which varies a great deal.
A new study has reported that hot peppers reduce breast cancer cell growth and increase cell death without affecting normal breast cells. The study was designed to investigate the relationship between the capsaicin content of peppers and the impact of pepper extracts on human breast and leukemia cancer cells. Reports are inconsistent concerning the anticancer activity of hot peppers and their primary biologically active component, capsaicin. The authors tested extracts from several different peppers in human breast and leukemia cancer cell lines in the laboratory.
Studies concerning hot peppers, capsaicin and cancer have produced mixed results. On the one hand, capsaicin has been shown to induce apoptosis in several different types of cancer cells and mechanisms have been proposed to explain its apparent anti-cancer activity. On the other hand, capsaicin also appears to act as a carcinogen in some parts of the body.
