Spicy Condiment Kills Cancer

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Given the option, most of us would do anything to avoid chemotherapy.

And who could blame you? The sickening drugs and endless rounds of treatments can really wreck your body.

Even worse, they don’t always work — especially if you’re suffering from aggressive types of cancer.

Fortunately, German researchers have found that a common food might be the way to stop aggressive cancer in its tracks.

In fact, it could be the all-natural cancer alternative we’ve all been looking for.

This powerful cancer killer is hot peppers, just like the kind in your favorite hot sauce.

That’s right, your go-to condiment seems to have the power to kill cancer cells by the millions.

You see, capsaicin, the compound that makes hot peppers so spicy, can also help your body destroy cancer.

To prove this, researchers from Ruhr-University Bochum, in Germany, recently put capsaicin to the test against triple-negative breast cancer cells, which are particularly tough to beat.

In a lab, the scientists exposed these cells to capsaicin, and what they found was unbelievable…

The capsaicin not only slowed the growth of the cancer cells but also killed a large number of tumor cells.

Even better, it slowed down the few surviving cells, which could prevent the cancer from growing and spreading in the body.

Experts believe capsaicin is so effective against cancer because it activates a special pathway called TRPV1, which is present in many cancer cells.

Further research is needed to pinpoint an exact dosage for capsaicin use against cancer, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start loading up on it now.

In fact, previous research has shown that it controls inflammation and can be a powerful pain reliever.

Be sure to add a hit of hot sauce to your favorite foods for added cancer protection.

If spicy foods don’t do it for you, you can also pick up a capsaicin supplement at the pharmacy or through online retailers like vitacost.com.

Live well,
