Health benefits Of Chilies (Mirch)


It is strange to know at least for few people that Chillies have health benefits.Your eyes may start watering just with the name of it, but you would be surprised to know that these spicy ones have healing power too.


Since ancient times, chillies have been used by healers to cure a variety of ailments. They have been used externally to relieve pain and internally to cure anything from yellow fever to the common cold. The active ingredient in hot red peppers is a compound called capsaicin, which gives it that unique sting. Capsaicin triggers the release of endorphins in the brain, which has a pain relieving effect similar to that of morphine.
Their high vitamin C content can also substantially increase the absorption of non-heme iron from other ingredients in a meal, such as beans and grains.
