There is an old saying, ( whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger ), which makes the perfect motto for the chili pepper. Chili peppers are not only for Taco’s or Burritos, but also can be added to ones foods as, omelets, stews, and even salads.
Eating a chili pepper has more of an immediate impact than taking a spoonful of medicine. When the hot pepper meets the tongue, the brain is slammed with an onslaught of nerve messages. The result is a flood of watery eyes, nose run, mucus in the lungs loosens up, warm felling all over the body.
For years doctors advised people prone to ulcers to abstain from eating spicy foods, but research now suggests the opposite, that chili peppers may help prevent ulcers from occurring. Capsaicin appears to shield the stomach lining from ulcer causing acids and alcohol by stimulating the flow of protective digestive juices. Researches at National University Hospital in in Singapore, found that people who consumed the most chili powder had the fewest ulcers, which leads them to believe that chili, or capsaicin was the protective factor.Getting more hot chilies into your diet may strengthen your personal anti aging arsenal, that is because they are a rich source in vitamin C and beta carotene ( which is converted into vitamin A in the body ). These antioxidants help protect the body by, neutralizing, free radicals, which is harmful oxygen molecules that naturally accumulate in the body and cause cell damage. Using your intake of antioxidant vitamins, researches believe, may help prevent damage that can lead to cancer, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and a weaken immune system.
