It is impossible to imagine Indian cuisine without red chillies. Whether in the whole form or the powder form, the entire world uses it in some form or the other. There are many different kinds of red chillies available throughout the country, each with its own unique taste and form. Red chillies are also a part of many spice blends, condiments and sauces. The fiery hot taste and spicy kick that it renders to dishes is only one of the many benefits of red chilli powder.
While it is rarely discussed, there are many health benefits of having red chillies as a part of our daily food. Beyond adding taste, our dishes get healthier with every pinch of this versatile red spice. The primary bio active plant compound in red chillies, known as capsaicin, is responsible for the taste and health benefits of red chillies. Higher the amount of capsaicin in the spice, the hotter it tastes and the more benefits it adds to your food.
Red chillies are good for digestive health as they help increase the secretion of digestive juices which prevent problems such as constipation and gas. Red chillies are also used as a preservative due to their antibacterial and anti fungal properties, which also helps in reducing harmful bacteria. This can help in keeping the intestines healthy.
Capsaicin in red chilli is known to increase fat burning and reduce appetite. It reduces food cravings and increases metabolism, both beneficial for weight loss. Capsaicin is also thermogenic.
Iron in red chilli can increase production of haemoglobin and increase blood flow. Optimal amount of oxygen and iron in the brain can improve cognitive function and decrease chances of cognitive disorders.
Health benefits of red chilli include its ability to clear nasal congestion by clearing mucus from the nose. Its antibacterial properties also help fight chronic sinus infections as it can help induce vasoconstriction in the nasal blood vessels.
When used in its purest form with all its natural oils intact, red chilli adds bountiful benefits to our everyday food
