Health Tips-23: "Chillies"

Chillies contain powerful medicinal properties. They act as antioxidants that fight cholesterol, diabetes, cataract, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis; they will even burn calories! They act as a painkiller in muscle spasms, and a chilly poultice will heal sores, even in an ulcerated stomach. Healthwise, you can never go wrong with chillies. Good for kidneys, spleen, and pancreas; wonderful for lockjaw. Chillies are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals and contain seven times more vitamin C than an orange. Sore throats, congestion, sluggish digestion, varicose ulcers, laryngitis, blood pressure, insomnia, hay fever, flu, is there anything that chillies can’t help cure?
