Scientists may have found a kitchen spice which processes a potential for reducing risk and treatment of cancers, some studies suggested.
The spicy herb has been used in traditional medicine to increases metabolism, enhance circulatory system and stomach and the intestinal tract, adjust blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, treat frostbite, muscles, arthritis, rheumatism, low back pain, strains, sprains, bruises, and neuralgia, etc.
The chemical constituents of Cayenne include capsaicin, capsacutin oil, solaine, xanthenes, oleic acid, palmitic acid, etc.
In the study to examine whether Capsaicin, a pungent phytochemical in a variety of red peppers processes an anti-proliferative effect on numbers of cancer, researchers at the Changhua Christian Hospital, launched an investigation of cell proliferation/viability and cytotoxicity of KB cells exposed to capsaicin.
In cell cycle analysis, capsaicin inhibits cancer cell division n in cell cycle arrest at G2/M phase of KB cells.
Further analysis suggested that capsaicin growth inhibition of KB cells was attributed mostly in the induction of cell apoptosis, through disrupting the pathway associated with cancer cellular response in differentiation, proliferation, and survival.
In morphological analysis, DAPI staining and DNA fragmentation assay, the aqueous extract of chili pepper at 300 μl/ml. demonstrated maximum cell death and apoptotic cell demise (88%) to occur within 24 hours compared to other pungent spicy extracts.
