Chili or Chilli is a name that refers to an exotic species of smaller peppers growing largely in tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, and Central or South America. Sometimes these peppers are also referred to as hot peppers, but it is no longer a typical elongated type of chilies, as it is a different type of fruit.
Most of you know them as extremely hot peppers, but today there are other forms, most often spices or powder. However, in one specific species, it is already referred to separately as Cayenne pepper, and I will deal with it independently in the following text.
However, the pungency that we perceive is not the essential feature of these fruits. On the contrary, it is only a manifestation of an important substance called capsaicin. Because of this substance, Chili has a positive effect on potency and libido, for example.
Chilli: Description, Use, Origin, and Occurrence Where it Grows
According to historical sources, chili peppers have a very long history, or Indian tribes were grown in America in the 6th century BC. However, Chilli has also been found in India, China, Japan, Vietnam, Africa, and South and Central America, especially in Mexico. It is also very often used in the Balkans.
- Chilli is an exotic type of bushy Capsicum peppers with a distinctive and typical aroma
- Several varieties of these peppers, such as Chinese pepper, bushy, hairy, which differ in shape and burning.
- The Chilli is characterized by a slightly sweet taste and hotness, which is given by the substance capsaicin
So, it doesn’t have just one color. On the contrary, the peppers themselves can be green, yellow, orange, and of course, red. The redder the pepper, the more ripe the fruit. Interestingly, the burning capsaicin itself dissolves in fat, such as milk, but also in alcohol.
Chilli is in High Demand due to its Beneficial Effects
- promotes better digestion, enormous appetite, and a beneficial impact on the stomach, but only in a reasonable dose
- improves the condition of blood vessels, the immune system protects the heart and can destroy bacteria and parasites
- is, of course, an excellent aphrodisiac and faster erection and longer erection duration
Although the best way to get the positive effects of chili peppers is to eat them raw, this method has one significant disadvantage, and that is the fact that long-term consumption is not possible for everyone. If you don’t like hot, you have a problem. In other news, it has a positive effect on the body only after prolonged use.
Substances and Composition of the Chili Plant
In other words, it is a source not only of capsaicin but also of vitamins and other substances acting, for example, on blood vessels, the nervous system, the stomach, or immunity. Different types of minerals also help some necessary metabolic processes in the body. However, Chilli does not have a diverse composition, as is the case with other plants, but it replaces the effects.
These are the essential substances that Chili offers for the human body:
The group of capsaicinoids includes the plant alkaloid capsaicin, which is plentiful in Chilli. Interestingly, while in the plant itself, it has the role of protecting against some herbivores and fungi, in humans, it has supportive effects on blood circulation, metabolic rate, and also stimulating gastric secretion and thus promoting digestion.
Antioxidant effects, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral effects, all this is characteristic of substances called flavonoids, which are also found in Chilli. On the positive side, flavonoids can stimulate the immune system and thus increase its ability to act in the fight against infections or inflammation.
As far as vitamins are concerned, Chili is an excellent vitamin C source in particular. It also contains vitamins A or E, but not in such quantities. Vitamin C has a beneficial effect mainly on our immune system, bones, blood vessels, and gums because it creates collagen necessary for this tissue’s healthy functioning. Also, vitamin C cannot be produced by our body, so it is an excellent source.
When it comes to metals, you can find potassium, manganese, iron, or magnesium in Chile. Most of these substances, I would focus on iron, as it plays a vital role in the creation of hemoglobin and red blood cells, which helps to improve blood circulation and thus blood flow to the genitals, for example.
Substances called carotenoids are excellent antioxidants with high biological activity and protect our cells from oxidative stress and premature aging. Also, they support immunity. The beta-carotene contained in Chilli has a beneficial effect on white blood cells, and the body can produce vitamin A from it under certain conditions.
Chilli and its Effects
Let’s now look at the most critical reason why I started to deal with Chile at all, and these are the effects of the plant on the human body. For the optimal result of most of these effects, you must consume the fruit fresh and without processing, ideally for a long time. Fortunately, this does not apply to all results, especially not to effects sexual life.
These are the most important effects that Chilli has:
1. Increased Libido
Chilli is one of the most effective natural and natural aphrodisiacs. This is mainly due to its composition, which gives the body energy and vitality and, at the same time, affects libido. Even the smallest amount of Chili can affect the body enough to stimulate the production of hormones, which increases the desire for sex. These effects were already known to ancient Native American tribes, especially in Central America.
2. Erection Support
In addition to increasing libido use Fildena or vigora, the use of Chili also promotes erection. Thanks to the dilation of blood vessels and the improvement of blood circulation, the blood gets much better, faster and in larger quantities into the axillary bodies, which results in a quicker and better-quality onset of an erection, but also, for example, its maintenance for a more extended period.
3. Improving Digestion
As I mentioned above, the use of Chili in reasonable doses promotes the secretion of gastric juices, which has a positive effect on the digestive process. In a reasonable amount, Chilli is better than regular spices and improves digestion and, for example, the breakdown of fat stores. This is one of the purposes why people taking Chilli are said to be thinner.
4. Improving the Functioning of the Cardiovascular System
Dilation of blood vessels, reduction of blood pressure, improved heart function, and prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. These are other positive effects of the plant and its fruits on our body, which affect the blood circulation and the cardiovascular system. Also, capsaicin effectively stimulates the entire blood circulation and promotes better blood circulation throughout the body.
5. Increase Immunity and Defense
Chilli can improve immunity and destroy bacteria or contribute to a better acute disease course, especially inflammatory and infectious in the respiratory system. Capsaicin and whole Chili are considered the best natural antibiotics, which are ideal for prevention and as a support in the treatment of inflammation and infections.
6. Support the Nervous System and Musculoskeletal System
If you need to relax your muscles, deal with club inflammation or spine problems, several sources also recommend using Chilli. This helps with rheumatism, but here its effects are not apparent until prolonged use. So, it is also perfect for improving the functioning of the nervous system and helps with headaches.
