Sizzlin’ Wild garlic is more than just delicious. Good for lowering blood pressure, wild garlic helps reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Spiced up with Habaneros to give it a kick.
Toss a half cup of Hot Wild Garlic Habanero sauce with chicken wings and bake for a spicy, finger-licking game-day snack.
Add a teaspoon or two of Hot Arusha Wild Garlic Habanero sauce to chili. Just how vinegar or lemon juice can brighten up a soup, the hot sauce’s acid and heat will perk up your long-simmered chili and brighten the flavor.”
Why is wild garlic good for me?
Given its antibacterial, antibiotic, antiseptic and anti … well, just about everything, properties, it makes sense to pack as much into your diet as you can. The headline health benefit of garlic is its effectiveness in reducing blood pressure and, hence, heart disease and the risk of stroke. Although all garlic has this property, wild garlic has the greatest effect on lowering blood pressure.
Allium ursinum, or wild garlic
Over the past couple of years, however, appreciation of wild garlic has become more widespread. This weed has started to feature on restaurant menus as a herald of spring. At Quo Vadis, Jeremy Lee pairs it with lamb’s sweetbreads and peas. At Le Café Anglais they sometimes use its sweet pungency to flavour roast bream. And I once tasted an astonishingly good wild-garlic soup at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, like frothy green garlic essence.
Health Benefits of the Habanero Pepper

The habanero pepper is one of the hottest varieties of chili peppers. The Scoville unit of measure is directly related to a chemical called capsaicin. The higher the number of Scoville units, the greater the concentration of capsaicin. The habanero pepper measures from 100,000 to 500,000 Scoville units compared with a jalapeno pepper, which measures 5,000 to 15,000 Scoville units. According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, capsaicin can be used as a treatment for a variety of medical disorders. Because of the high concentration of capsaicin, consumption of habanero peppers can promote several health benefits.
Scientific studies have shown that consumption of habanero peppers can offer a beneficial effect against prostate cancer. A study performed by the Department of Hematology/Oncology at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, revealed that the oral administration of capsaicin significantly slowed the growth and proliferation of human prostate cancer cells. The results of this study is promising for the use of capsaicin during the management of prostate cancer. It should be noted that this study was performed on laboratory mice; however, the results are encouraging, and research continues on the effects of capsaicin on prostate cancer in the human population.
Helps Fight Obesity
Studies have indicated that the consumption of habanero peppers can be effective at fighting obesity because of the presence of capsaicin. According to the “Journal of Proteome Research,” capsaicin increases thermogenesis throughout the body. Thermogenesis is the process in which the body raises its temperature, or energy output. Increasing thermogenesis increases the body’s metabolism, which forces fat cells to be used as energy. The study published in the “Journal of Proteome Research” was performed by the Department of Biotechnology at Daegu University in Korea. The study confirms the presence of capsaicin increases thermogenesis and lipid metabolism, which is beneficial for the treatment of obesity.
