The most important and active compound in cayenne is capsaicin. Dr. Sanjay K. Srivastava and colleagues, at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine, in 2004, treated pancreatic cells with capsaicin from cayenne. The researchers have found that capsaicin disrupted mitochondrial function and induced apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancerous cells without affecting normal pancreatic cells. They’ve published the study results in April, 20th, 2005, in the Innovations Report magazine. In this article, Dr. Sanjay K. Srivastava said that their results showed that capsaicin is a potential anti-cancer agent. Capsaicin induces apoptosis in cancer cells and produces no significant damage to normal pancreatic cells, indicating its potential use as a novel chemotherapeutic agent for pancreatic cancer.
This wasn’t the only one. There was another article, published in Reuters magazine, on March 16, 2006, which was entitled “Hot Pepper Kills Prostate Cancer Cells in Study”. One of the lead researchers of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the UCLA School of Medicine, Dr. Soren Lehmann, said that capsaicin had a profound anti-proliferative effect on human prostate cancer cells in culture. Capsaicin caused almost 80% of the prostate cancer cells growing in mice to commit suicide in a process, which is known as apoptosis. According to a study, conducted by group of researchers in Japan, medical experts have also found that cayenne pepper can dramatically slow the development of prostate tumors, and it’s an excellent addition to alternative cancer treatment for this type of cancer.
