Health Chili peppers have high levels of vitamin C and are a good source of many B vitamins. They also contain high amounts of potassium, magnesium and iron, making them a healthy addition to any diet. Capsaicin is known for fighting inflammation and has been shown to be an effective treatment for arthritis, certain types of neuropathy and psoriasis. It is generally used topically for pain relief. Studies have shown that chili peppers are good for heart health and lowering cholesterol. As any aficionado of spicy foods can tell you, chili peppers are also good at clearing mucus from the sinuses or congested lungs.
History Archeological evidence shows that chili peppers have been domesticated for more than 6000 years, and ancient peoples had been using them since 7500 BC. Christopher Columbus first encountered them in the Caribbean, calling them peppers because of their spicy flavor. After bringing them back to Europe, they were cultivated in Spanish and Portuguese monasteries and often used as a substitute for black peppercorns, which had risen dramatically in price.
