tory ailments like arthritis; and liver and heart disease.


In another study, scientists from Korea have found that chillies can trigger weight loss and help fight the build up of fat in the body. This is because chillies contain an ingredient called Capsaicin which can potentially encourage help- ful chemical changes in the body. The study found that when women took just two teaspoons of spice, and sprinkled it over a meal, they consumed fewer calories and fat.


Recent scientific studies show that turmeric, used in many curry dishes, can significantly reduce the symp- toms of Alzheimer’s disease. One study, published in the Journal of Neurochemistry, found that patients who took curcumin extract - the com- pound that gives turmeric its yellow- orange colour - experienced a 30% decrease in Alzheimer’s-related beta amyloid brain plaques. Taking cur- cumin extract also prevented new beta amyloid plaques from forming.


Turmeric may work even better when

However a judge threw out the claim at Southampton County Court, saying there were ‘no reasonable grounds’ for the claim. As a result Mr Hussein is allowed to continue to warn his customers.
