Did you know habanero peppers are actually good for treating heartburn?
Sounds strange, but research shows that the capsaicin in habanero peppers triggers your body to release a neurotransmitter called Substance P in response to the heat.
The benefit comes with repeated exposure to capsaicin, through frequent and regular consumption of hot peppers. When capsaicin regularly contacts a specific site on the body, levels of substance P actually become depleted at the nerve terminals in that location. The result – significant reductions in pain.
