Chili Peppers are high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C and are reported to help lower blood. It is also very healing for the heart and circulatory system.Studies have shown it can rebuild the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines. Traditionally used by herbalists to cure stomach aches, cramping, gas, varicose veins, allergies, and constipation. In our country, eating chili is their favorite, specially mixed to dishes. Are you eating chili pepper?

Hiya boyl., Over here we eat green and red peppers but not many eat chili peppers as they feel they are much too hot for them. A few like Mexican foods with chili in them but there are not many that do. On the whole we eat the other kind of peppers. There is another kind of peppers that are green and very small and a bit spicy in taste and they are also very good for you. Chili peppers are very good for you but what if you have a really sensitive tummy and you cannot tolerate them. It´s like some people cannot tolerate beans of any kind even though they know they are good for them. I like the taste of chili but its way too much for me to eat a lot of it. Suppose I could get used to it but no one in our House likes them at all so I have lost the battle even before I start lol.xxx

i add chilli in my kids meals too as i had read somewhere that it helps in killing worms in their intestine,which arise due to eating too much sweet.

well i have seen on dr oz and other shows that spicy hot peepers can help lose weight i guess it speeds up the matepalisim and they do have vitamins in them being a veg. plus anything grown naturally off a tree or in the ground is healthy.

No I don't like the flavour, unless it is on the very mild side. They are not that good in my opinion, but I know they have alot of health benefits. I will let you all eat them but pass on my share.

Eating chilly is good. But i think it's better to use it as cook ingridients or additional food. Eat it too much is not really good for our digestive system.

I eat pepper sometimes but I cannot stand to eat a lot of it. Just little to taste usually do.

well its true that they are high in vitamin C but remember vitamin C is heat sensitive vitamin so food cooked with chili has lost some of its vitamin C. Too bad we cant eat chili like birds they are immune to the spicy sensation or should we say they didnt develop the receptor to feel the burning hot sensation.

I don't eat chili, spicy food. But I've heard there are good benefits of eating those. Also bad effect, like can trigger hemorrhoids. :D
