Hot Peppers Health Benefits

Carolina Reaper Hot PepperCarolina Reaper Hot Pepper

This page talks about hot peppers health benefits as well as growing  the Carolina Reaper, the hottest pepper to date.

Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper® is a super hot pepper developed by Founder, President, Mad-Scientist & Chef Smokin' Ed Currie in his Rock Hill, South Carolina greenhouse.  Measuring over 1.5 million on the Scoville Heat Unit Scale, Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper® was awarded the Guinness World Record in November of 2013.  

The flavor of Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper® has been described as a roasted sweetness delivering an instant level of heat never before achieved continuing with an increasing tidal wave of scorching fire that grips you from head to toe. Eyes glaze. Brows perspire.  Arms flail.     CAUTION!      CAUTION!     CAUTION!    CAUTION!    CAUTION!

This pepper is hot.  The hottest but I spoke to Herb who tells me that they have another even hotter one soon to be released.

Capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili peppers, is so hot that it can make your mouth feel like it’s on fire.

This phyto-chemical exists in peppers, most likely, to deter animals from eating them, and is also the active component of pepper sprays used for self-defense. 

You can also mix up some hot peppers with water and spray on your plants as an organic insecticide.  You will have to experiment to find the right formula for your application.

Yet for humans, when capsaicin is consumed in a somewhat diluted form, such as in hot sauce, chili peppers or cayenne peppers, it offers a myriad of health benefits.

Chili peppers are typically red or green in color, but there are hundreds of different varieties out there.

There are many health benefits to eating hot peppers or their sauces.

When you use a hot sauce you can just feel it working in your body doing all sorts of good things.  I get some so hot it makes me sweat while I am eating it.
