Our love for our exotic satti drove us to do a research on its health values, given the fact that everyone is already health conscious these days.
We were amazed at what we found! We are happy to declare that not only does satti tastes incomparably good, it also packs a wallop as far as health and well-being is concerned. Satti is really a HEALTH FOOD.
As a bonus to its exotic taste and unique dining experience, satti’s peanut- and siling-labuyo-based soup have been proven by scientists and medical experts worldwide to cure some of the following ailments and diseases:
*High Blood Pressure
*Cluster Headaches and Migraines
*Flu or Respiratory Problem
*Pain and Discomfort
*Sinusitis, Tension and Sinus Headaches
*Surgical and Osteoarthritis pain
A study made by the prestigious University of Nottingham, England, show that spicy food ``can kill cancer by attacking the mitochondria of the tumor cell … without harming the healthy surrounding cells (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-427558/Spicy-foods-protect-cancer.html).
In a study published at the Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications journal, anti-cancer drug development expert Dr. Timothy Bates described the findings as ``incredibly exciting and may explain why people living in countries like Mexico and India, who traditionally eat a diet which is very spicy, tend to have lower incidences of many cancers that are prevalent in the western world.’’
He than advised cancer patients or ``those at risk of developing cancer’’ to eat spicy food ``to help treat or prevent the disease.’’
The online encyclopedia Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capsaicin) also cites a study by the American Association for Cancer Research showing that capsaicin has been found to cure prostrate cancer.’’
The study said capsaicin has ``component hot enough to trigger suicide in prostrate cancer cells (http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2006-03/aafc-pch031306.php).’’
``It has long been noted that in Thailand, where lots of spicy food is consumed, there is a very low incidence of gastrointestinal cancers, including colorectal, stomach, cancers, compared to the rest of Asia, including Japan and China. Mexico has low rates of the same cancers compared to the USA (http://jjco.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/32/suppl_1/S82).’’
Capsaicin has been found to fight acne ``through a thermal heat action that helps to open pores and increase blood flow to the surface of the skin,’’ thus prompting a drug company to develop the world’s first pepper-based face wash (http://www.thankhealth.com/health-informations/Resources-0464.html).’’
Chilies lower blood pressure by increasing blood circulation because it helps the vessel walls to become more elastic and better able to adjust to differences in blood pressure.
So, please help us spread the good news regarding the health benefits of satti to friends, relatives and people you truly love. Tell them that finally, there is a health food that is not tasteless and boring. Feel free to share and post this in your walls or email it to friends.
Our research on the health benefits of satti truly fits our description of this food as exciting, life-giving and with a soul to boot. Life is truly enjoyable to live if you are relatively free from pain and discomforts brought about by ailments and diseases.
So now you can take your satti and eat it too!!!
This study is done by us alone and we are neither doctors, nutritionist nor scientists. We are not saying satti itself cures cancer but the tons of chili used to give satti its sting do, as the studies show. We encourage you to do your own study and research on the substance ``capsaicin’’ and the ``antibacterial properties" scientists claim it contain and give us your feedback about it. But if what the scientists are saying is true, then I think that is more than enough reason for you to pack your bags, buy your tickets and head to Zamboanga and Sulu for a health and adventure trip! Welcome to Zamboanga City, the Miracle Satti City!!!
