Mineral of Beauty

The benefits of the warm effect generated by Capsicum

Chilli also helps control pain. Capsaicin causes a sensation of heat in the nerve cells. In this way the signals sent to the brain centers are reversed, which makes it possible to control the sensation of pain.
Due to this property, capsicum is found in many cosmetic and medicinal products such as creams, lotion and patches that heat the affected area of ​​the body, quickly suppress pain and warm the muscles.

Red chili is also rich in sulfur. Sulfur is a non-metallic substance that is easily found in nature: for example, we find it in all protein-rich foods such as white and red meat, fish, milk, egg yolks, onion, garlic, turnips and cabbage. Sulfur represents a component equal to 0.25% of human body weight and is often called the “mineral of beauty” because it participates in the formation of keratin – a protein that gives structure, strength and resistance to skin, nails and hair.

Capsicum effectively fights overweight problems, is able to dry excess moisture and reduce body mass by absorbing fat. Taiwanese scientists have established that capsaicin, which affects the spiciness of chili peppers, inhibits the growth of fat cells. The dilation of blood vessels allows greater drainage of fluids, accelerating the disposal of fat pads and accumulations of cellulite. Precisely for this reason, in the latest proposals from the manufacturers of anti-cellulite creams, capsicum is the main ingredient.
