Chili pepper can treat migraine
December 1, 2007
Researchers suggest the active ingredient in cayenne pepper, capsaicin, is an effective alternative treatment for chronic headaches.
According to the study published in the Clinical Journal of Pain, capsaicin may help alleviate headaches by depleting neurotransmitters responsible for pain signals.
Several studies have reported cayenne pepper also known as chili pepper, to be effective in various health problems such as type I diabetes, stomach aches, and cancer.
Many researchers consider controlling the diet as the most effective alternative treatment for migraineurs. Some studies also suggest avoiding wheat, grains, sugar, artificial preservatives, and all fluids except water.
