What is Capsicum oil?
Capsicum (peppers) is an ancestral spice from diverse and pungent edible fruit from any of the varieties within the Capsicum genus. It is widely used in most of southern kitchens for its spicy flavour, deriving from capsaicin, an odourless, tasteless photochemical, which produces the chili pepper’s heat.
Capsaicin is found in the fleshy membrane of both sweet and hot peppers and in higher concentration in the seeds. We make our oil from the best variety of Chilli in Thailand, and with a cold press procedure we extract its oil, that we package in edible capsules to reap its medicinal benefits.
Capsicum oil Nutrition Facts
The use of whole chilli peppers from the Capsicum genus provides nutritional value, including high amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A.
Capsicum oil beneficial bioactive components of the capsicum chili are the content of flavonoids. Alkaloids and tannins are some of the other important bioactive compounds; Alkaloids work as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antioxidant agents.
Health Benefits of Capsicum oil
The phytochemical constituents of capsicum produces an anti-inflammatory response that alleviates peripheral neurogenic pain related to Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory disease of the bowels. Another example of peripheral neurogenic inflammation is a cutaneous pain of the skin. Creams and balms containing Capsicum oil are often massaged topically onto the skin with care taken to avoid open areas and mucous membranes. The burning effect of capsicum is felt when applied to the skin, which is caused by an inflammatory response of the peripheral nerve endings. But regular application deadens the sensory nerve endings and relieves chronic diabetic neurogenic pain. Some suggest that the anti-inflammatory effect of capsicum may also help alleviate pain related to arthritis.
Capsicum oil forms Mucilage
Capsicum oil contains tannins. Tannins are astringent and are often considered beneficial for gastrointestinal disorders such as diarrhea, dysentery, and other microbial disorders. Gastric mucilage acts to protect the gastric lining and prevent peptic ulcer development.

A suggested effect of the vasodilative properties of capsicum is the improvement of hypotension and decreased heart rate. Vasodilatation allows for improved blood flow resulting in better oxygenation of organ tissues. This is most likely due to the tachykinins, a known bioactive ingredient in capsicum.
All the bioactive compounds of capsicum provide antioxidant effects. Improved vasodilatation allows for these antioxidant phytochemicals to circulate throughout the body. This allows it to protect and repair tissues and damaged DNA.
Capsicum oil Prevents Cancer
An important effect of tannin contained in capsicum oil is in the prevention and treatment of cancer. Capsicum essential oil has an inhibitory effect on many types of malignant cancers specially pulmonary, hepatic, and gastric cancers.
The anti-cancer effect of capsicum is determined by the bioactive ability of the phytochemical capsaicin to inhibit cancer cell growth. Capsaicin also causes destruction of already damaged cellular structure in the human body.
The use of Capsicum oil as hypoglycaemic medicine may stimulate insulin production which results in lower blood glucose. This would mean that capsicum oil is beneficial in preventing the onset of type II diabetes and its potential complications.
Capsicum oil contains vitamin C, which is valued as an immune supportive bioactive phytochemical. It helps in strengthening the immune system, repairing damaged brain tissues, and lowering the risk of oxidative stress, pediatric asthma, and cancer. It also improves bone health.

Treats Diabetic Neuropathy
