Vindaloos Cure Headaches

Vindaloos Cure Headaches

It seems that a strong curry, such as a Vindaloo, may in fact be a cure for headaches.

Research, carried out by the Rowett Institute, has found that Vindaloos are better than aspirin at getting rid of headaches.

The key ingredient is salicylic acid, which is found in aspirin, and it occurs naturally in Indian food.

Spices found in curry such as cumin, turmeric and paprika are all rich in the ingredient.

Whilst aspirin can cause internal bleeding and ulcers, curry does not.
