Chillies are one of the most used spices in cooking. Green chillies have a number of incredible health benefits.
Green chillies have absolutely zero calories, making them the perfect spice ingredient for those focused on a healthy diet. They can also speed up your metabolism as much as 50% for up to three hours after eating, ensuring a healthy and fit lifestyle.
Rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, chillies are great for helping you take care of your skin regime, keeping your skin healthy and glowing. In order to ensure your chillies withhold the vitamin C ensure that they are stored in a dark, cool area. Chillies exposed to heat, light and air are at risk of losing their vitamin C.
Capsaicin found in green chillies is known to lower body temperature by stimulating the cooling centre of the hypothalamus in the brain. Hence people are still enjoying hot and spicy foods flavoured with chilli in warm countries around the world.
