How healthy are Habaneros?
“A six-week study showed that capsaicinoids found in habaneros reduced total cholesterol and bad cholesterol levels without reducing levels of good cholesterol,” Friedman says. “So while eating a habanero might make you sweat and increase your heart rate, it may also actually help lower your blood pressure.”
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.
