Useful Properties Of Chili Pepper


Something I was recently on culinary topics pulled, more precisely, on grocery. Living in the tropics (and I’m there now and I live:)), I have become accustomed to the frequent use of Cayenne pepper (another name for Chile) in cooking, although it is still a lot we don’t eat. However, it also has very useful properties, which will be discussed today.

How Useful The Chili?

Generally, the useful properties of his weight, ranging from destruction

of cancer cells, and prior to the termination of a heart attack within 30 seconds. Cool?

Heart Health

Cayenne pepper or Chile quickly boosts your metabolism, influencing the venous structure of the body. Actually, he has a tremendous effect on the blood supply, because Chile feeds the cell structure of capillaries, veins and arteries of the necessary elements, and helps to normalize blood pressure.

Famous naturalist, Dr. John Christopher argued that could stop a heart attack, if you can make the patient to drink a glass of warm water with chili: «a teaspoon of Cayenne should bring the patient out of the state of heart attack». «…count to 10, and stop the bleeding. The pressure will be distributed, normalized, and blood clotting will go faster». However, I must say that Dr. Christopher had a lot of conflicting studies, although the current data confirmed most of them.

Chili Pepper Against Cancer

In the Reuters article, dated 16 March 2006 stated that the main ingredient of chili peppers, capsaicin . capable of destroying cancer cells prostate: «80% of capsaicin caused prostate cancer cells in mice to «suicide» — it happened in a process known as apoptosis. Cancer of prostate tumors in mice that were given the capsaicin, were the size of 1/5 the size of tumors in mice, capsaicin which is not allowed. According to Dr. Soren Lehmann of the University of California in Los Angeles, capsaicin has a profound antiproliferative effect on cancer of the human prostate». Well.

Red Cayenne Pepper — A Source Of Vitamin A

In addition to the effect of capsaicin, Cayenne red pepper is also a great source of vitamin A due to the concentration of provitamin A carotenoids including beta-carotene. Beta-carotene provides antioxidant in itself, but also can be transformed in the body into vitamin a, an essential element for the health of all epithelial tissues (i.e. the tissues that cover the entire cavity of the body, including the respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital).

Beta-carotene may be helpful in reducing symptoms of asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Due to antioxidant properties (antioxidant properties), it can prevent cell damage from free radicals, thus preventing the development of atherosclerosis, colon cancer, and diabetic complications such as nerve damage and heart disease.

Another Benefit Of Chili

The Cayenne pepper cleans the arteries, helping the body rid itself of bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It is also good for stomach and digestive tract (of course, if to be moderate; I had an experience when a little stomach is not ruined from uncontrolled absorption Chile). Chili stimulates intestinal peristalsis, helping to get rid of constipation. Of course, if you just eat meals with chili peppers, but not comply with other principles of healthy eating, such as a good chewing, you can still pursue constipation.

Cayenne pepper warms the body when it is eaten and also heals wounds and restores flesh after frostbite.

Funny, but he is also able to restore the stomach wall, despite its pungency, because it promotes the healing of gastric ulcers. I certainly don’t know all the studies and research on this topic, but I read that there were studies on the use of Cayenne pepper against gastric ulcers.

Well, once again let me remind you that chili well regulates blood pressure, balances the blood flow throughout the body, cleanses the blood vessels, improves heart function; also it controls the symptoms of allergies, helps with muscle spasms, improves digestion, gives energy (that’s for sure. )), accelerates the healing of wounds. He also helps eliminate toxins from the body.

Chilli Slimming

Once asked me about it. What can I say? I don’t know about the direct impact, but I can say that the improvement of digestion and metabolism (metabolism), as well as the restoration of proper blood supply and improved removal of toxins from the body have positive impact on the normalization of weight. Most importantly — all to keep a balance and not go too far, even with the Goodies in the form of chili pepper.

How To Use Cayenne Pepper For Health?

Of course, the easiest way — this dish with chili . But this is not the only option, especially if you don’t like spicy food. You can drink it with water, though it can be unpleasant. But this drink significantly improve the health of your heart and circulatory system in General.

So, add a quarter teaspoon of Cayenne pepper (powder) in a glass of warm water and stir. Then have a drink. This, of course, a variant on the fan, but can try.

Personally, I use chili in the dishes, especially soups and vegetables (do not eat meat, as a vegetarian ). Try, experiment. Just remember that health lies in the mode of goodness. and goodness — it is a balance or equilibrium. Find your balance in the use of Cayenne pepper, and stay healthy! (well, of health, of course, not only the pepper that depends :))
