In herbal medicines for external use, such as salves or warming patches, chili is used to relieve muscle pain, such as back pain [2]. In folk medicine, chili preparations are used for frostbite or arthritis. In addition, folk medicine is known to use chilli internally for hoarseness and sore throat [3].*

Today, a significant number of clinical studies provide substantial evidence that daily consumption of capsaicinoids contribute to weight management through reduction of energy intake. Chili CO2-extracts with capsaicinoids as bioactive ingredients have the potential, if taken regularly, to be used for natural weight-loss [4].*

In cosmetics, chilli extracts are used as skin conditioners and fragrances [5].*
