Green Chile is better for you than you may have known!

It increases Metabolism

Again with the capsaicin! The heat from the capsaicin increases the thermogenic process in your body (the body heats up),
speeding up your metabolism and burning more calories.

Boosts the Immune System

Six times higher in Vitamin C than citrus fruits, Green Chile helps bolster the immune system, and helps wounds heal faster. Dried Chiles are high in Vitamin A too.

Nutritionally packed!

Green Chiles’ have Vitamins B and E, Iron and Potassium, and beta-carotene; and they contain no fat or cholesterol. Green Chiles also block the body’s absorption of cholesterol. They do all this while maintaining a very low calorie count of about 18
calories per Chile Pepper.

You’ll stay full longer

The protein and fiber in Green Chile will keep you feeling full for hours after your meal.

It increases happiness and decreases pain

Endorphins are a part of the brain chemistry responsible for making you happy and for decreasing pain. Capsaicin, an active ingredient in Green Chile triggers endorphins. The hotter the chile the more Capsaicin in it. So, maybe Ghost Peppers would create euphoria? Ok maybe that’s too much of a good thing…
