A new study shows eating chili pepper four times a week significantly reduces the risk of fatal diseases. The pungent pepper reduced the overall risk of fatal illness by up to 23%. According to Business Insider, it also cuts the risk of stroke by nearly 50%. Capsaicin is the active compound in hot peppers that creates the spicy sensation. Prior research shows it has a myriad of health benefits, including boosting metabolism and lowering blood pressure. In large amounts, capsaicin can be painful and even toxic. But low doses can stimulate nerves and boost metabolism, aid digestion, and lower blood pressure.
