Get Hot & Get Healthy w/ Chili Peppers

chili peppersCoach E here:

The superfood superhero of the day is peppers. Peppers contain a powerful healing compound called capsaicinoids. This is particularly true of chili peppers which derive their heat as well as their anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving), anti-cancer, heart healthy effects from high levels of capsaicinoids.

In addition chili peppers:

1) Can assist in the weight loss process through increased fat utilization.

2) Are loaded with disease fighting antioxidants.

3) Contain 2x the amount of vitamin C found in citrus fruit.

4) Can help relieve headaches.

5) May relieve symptoms of arthritis

6) May help prevent chronic sinus infections.

7) May help prevent intestinal disease/discomfort.

Almost any dish can benefit from a small amount of hot chili peppers. I invite you to consider adding them to soups, stews, chili, stir- fry, salads and salsas.

Take away: Add small amounts of chili peppers to your diet and enjoy the zesty taste and powerful healing benefits.
