Green Chillies to Food for Pungency and for Multiple Health Benefits

Green chillies are a rich source of beta–carotene, antioxidants and endorphins (as the body defends itself against the heat of a hot chilli, it releases endorphins).

Beta-carotene converts into vitamin A (retinol) in our body – vitamin A is needed for good vision and eye health, strong immune system, healthy skin and for mucous membranes (or mucosa, a membrane that lines various cavities in the body and covers the surface of internal organs).

Antioxidants are called ‘free-radical scavengers’, because it prevents damage to cells caused by free radicals, free radicals are unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental and other pressures

Endorphins are chemicals produced by the body to relieve stress and pain, resulting in a feeling of well-being.
