Red pepper may be very hot in the mouth, but if you dread this spice then you must reconsider having it in your diet because it has amazing health benefits.

Pepper belongs to the capsicum genus foods with chili pepper being one of the most widely consumed around the world.

·        Chili has plenty of vitamin A, C and E. To understand how loaded chili is with vitamins, one ounce of chili contains a whooping 40mg of vitamin C which is two thirds of the recommended daily consumption of these nutrients. This actually means, you can get all that you need in terms of vitamins from eating chili.

 ·        The heat generated by red pepper can oxidize large layers of body fats for those who are obese. You therefore do not need to do exercise if you eat chili on a regular basis in your diet. It does this by raising body metabolism and simply burning away the fats.

 ·        Research has also shown that people who eat chili spiced foods feel less hungry and therefore eat less food. Because of the hot properties of chili, you are normally forced to take more water after a meal which makes you quickly satisfied. This explains why people who eat lots of chili are not obese.

 ·        Capsaicin found in red pepper helps to clear the lungs, improve circulation and acts as a pain killer for rheumatoid arthritis patients.

 ·        Once swallowed, chili causes the brain to release endorphins into the blood which generates a feeling of well-being similar to that which human being feels after an orgasmic release. This feel-good inducement is good for a happy and healthy life.

 ·        Consumers of chili are well placed to avoid blood clot while reducing their cholesterol at the same time because of chili’s power to dissolve fibrin. Moreover, communities that eat a lot of chili like Indians have very few cases if any, of heart attacks, strokes and pulmonary embolism.

  6. My mom grows these, but I never tried them before. Last summer she gave some to my sister and uncle. I know she already bought her plants for them at the farmers market two Thursdays ago. I do not know whether she has planted them yet as she has so much to plant it practically takes her all summer.
