About the Habanero Shaker

According to the Scoville heat scale, the Habanero Pepper has a heat level of 200,000 Scoville units (in comparison to 4,000 units in a jalapeno). The Habanero Pepper is a Chinese species that contains a high amount of capsaicin, a component of chili peppers that helps your brain trigger endorphins. They are the same endorphins that are released during a runner’s high in brain, causing a soothing feeling. Through years of research, the habanero pepper has been shown to have many health benefits, one including capsaicin can kill several types of bacteria, including e.coli, shigella, and salmonella. The Habanero Pepper also has Vitamin A and C and other types of vitamins.

Researchers have also found that capsaicin can raise a body’s metabolism, which suggests that it can help people lose weight. It also helps with blood circulation. Capsaicin can arouse glands called prostaglandis that help produce a protective barrier that can help prevent ulcers. The Habanero Shaker can be kept for a long period of time, as capsaicin is a very potent alkaloid that is unaffected by freezing temperature and heat, having it keep its potency when being cooked.
