Chili ground by Classic Ayurveda: According to Ayurvedic teachings, chili has a heating effect and is dry, light and pointed. Chili increases the Pitta Dosha and should therefore be avoided by Pitta types and also in summer when temperatures are very warm.
Vata, on the other hand, can be lowered with a small amount of chili. However, higher amounts of chili increase Vata and unbalance Vata constitutions. For Kapha types, chilli is an ideal spice. Make sure you can tolerate chili. If your body reacts unfavorably to chili, it is better to leave it out. There are Kapha types - or mixed constitutions - who do not tolerate chili because it is too hot and they have a sensitive stomach. Here, too, switch to other Kapha-reducing spices and foods.
The chili nutrients
Maybe you know him Active ingredient capsaicin, which is often used for pain of all kinds. Capsaicin is pungent and stimulates heat production in the body. Due to the increase in body temperature, the organism forms sweat on the skin. The energy that is created in the body is from the burning of fat generated and thus is chili a "fat burner" par excellence! The chillies from which this high-quality Classic Ayurveda chilli powder is made have a significant amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidantsthat protect your body from the harmful effects of free radicals generated by stress. In particular, chili peppers contain the Vvitamins B6, C and A.
Chili stimulates the metabolism
As mentioned, chili uses your fat cells to increase body energy and therefore supports your metabolism. Your fat burning is boosted and supports weight loss. Your fat cells are reduced more and the formation of new fat cells is inhibited. Your Digestive fire (Agni) is stimulated and Ama, the waste products are burned in the process. Similar to a normal fire.
Chili and your digestion works
Do you have sluggish digestion? Then chilli can help you, as long as your stomach tolerates chili. Stomach burning or even immediate bowel movements or bronchial reactions are signs that you cannot tolerate chili. Otherwise, the hot pods will help you according to various studies even at stomach ulcers. The mucous membrane and the blood circulation in the gastric mucosa are stimulated and stomach ulcers can heal better. Chili also has a preventive effect on stomach ulcers. The downside: According to Ayurveda, chili is not recommended for stomach ulcers. However, there are different opinions here.
Chili in your kitchenare you kapha Then chili fits well in your kitchen. The capsaicin in the chili is fat-soluble but not water-soluble. If you feel sharpness in your mouth and drink a glass of water or something similar, this won't help - on the contrary. Instead, it is better to eat a piece of bread or something else dry to reduce the sharpness. Milk and yoghurt can also neutralize the excessive spiciness. As an Ayurveda cook, I often use chili in vegetable curries or oven-baked vegetables. Especially for guests with Kapha constitutions. However, I always ask beforehand whether the person tolerates chili.
