Spray A Chili Pepper Up Your Nose To Clear Sinuses
Dr. Jonathan Bernstein says a nasal spray containing Capsicum annum, an ingredient in these peppers may help people clear up certain types of sinus inflammation. Bernstein and a few others recently conducted research on control groups and found that those who used a nasal spray with Capsicum reported a faster onset of action or relief, on average within a minute of using the spray. You know, it’s stuff like this that make me realize how dumb I really am. I mean, I’ve accidentally touched my eyes after eating a pepper before and couldn’t open it for a couple hours….so never in a million years would I have ever dreamed that it would be a “good” idea to spray ‘em up my nose. Guess that’s why they make the big bucks.
