8 Reasons That Chiles Are Good For Your Health


Here are Eight Reasons that Chiles are Good for You*:

 

  1. Assists prevention of diabetes (of course, eating lots of veggies is good for you!)
  2. Good for Heart Health (yes, veggies are good for you!)
  3. Assists with Weight Loss (eating more veggies and less junk food will do that!)
  4. Anti-inflammatory (unless you eat a Carolina Reaper, then your mouth will be inflamed!)
  5. Clears congestion (have you ever ate something spicy to de-congest? It works!)
  6. Boosts immunity
  7. Pain Reliever (or pain inducer, depending on the chile heat level! ;)
  8. Makes your mouth happy. ;) 

 

*While we don't guarantee that chiles can keep you living forever or cure any or all your ails, we do know that they're good for you! Chile peppers have 7 times the amount of vitamin C than an orange! They also can help fight sinus congestion, aid in digestion and even can help relieve migraines and muscle, joint and nerve pain. Chile peppers are also a great source of vitamins A and E, beta-carotene, folic acid and potassium – go for red chiles and get the extra Vitamin A and beta-carotene!

Growing Organically: Growing peppers organically also ensures that you have clean, healthy peppers that are free of pesticides or synthetic chemicals. It is also said that organically-grown veggies have more vitamins and minerals than ones grown with pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. We love using homemade compost for our chile pepper plants, and grow some huge peppers using just compost, soil and sunshine – no fertilizer needed!
