Healing Benefits of Hot Peppers
Hot Peppers are very healing to the body. They are generally high in Vitamin C and they help a lot with colds, flus and bronchitis. They also boost circulation (ever see someone get red in their face after eating a hot pepper?) and helps with the heart as well. Hot peppers can help to create hydrochloric acid in the stomach and can stimulate peristaltic motion of the gut – think, have you ever needed to ‘go’ after eating hot peppers?
