Karim's “Super sauce”

 

Grown in our composted blend of “super dirt”, peppers from several varieties are made into a delightful sauce bottled for use as, not only a tasty culinary ingredient, but also as an alternative healing agent in the diets of those who seek wellness through natural foods and those who wish to eventually come off medication.

 

Capsicum is the Botanical name for peppers.

Capsaicin is the active ingredient found in peppers that creates a burning sensation once ingested.  The burn felt while eating a jalapeno, habanero or cayenne pepper comes directly from the foods capsaicin.  Capsaicin, though odorless and flavorless, is primarily found in the peppers seeds and ribs, but is also evenly distributed throughout the vegetables flesh, according to the Wellness Encyclopedia of food and Nutrition.

 

The following is a list of some of the benefits of Capsaicin in hot peppers:

 

  1. It can lower your blood pressure.

  2. It can make your heart healthier

  3. Hot peppers increase oxygen in your body.  They act as an anti-oxidant.

  4. It curbs your appetite and helps you lose weight. A daily dose of hot peppers lets people breath easier, feel less pain and lower their body fat.

  5. It can help stop pain...an analgesic effect

  6. It can help prevent a heart attack or stroke.  It helps stop blood clots.

  7. It can help stop ulcers.  It does not cause them.

  8. Peppers have lots of Vitamins A, C and K. Red peppers contain high amounts of vitamin C and carotene (pro-vitamin A).

  9. Green peppers, (which are essentially unripe fruit) contain a considerably lower amount of both substances.  In addition, peppers are a good source of most B vitamins, and vitamin B6 in particular.  They are very high in potassium, magnesium and iron.  Their high vitamin C content can also substantially increase the uptake of iron from other ingredients in a meal, such as beans and grains.

  10. Hot peppers can cause the body to burn an extra 15 calories after eating the meal.

  11. Hot peppers are used as an expectorant to reduce mucous congestion and for arthritis.

  12.

This age-old vegetable has similar effects to those of Aleve, Tylenol, Advil, Tums and chemotherapy all wrapped in one-except this food has zip, taste and no fearful side effects.

 

Using hot pepper, as medicine is exciting because people have these foods already in their cabinets...These foods taste good and can be good for you too.  The spicier a pepper, the stronger is health effect.
