A bit more about that 'hot stuff'


Evening blogsters:

Shalini mentioned in a comment about the habenero post that it has medicinal qualities.

Shalini is correct.

Not just habenero, either.  Whatever the stuff is that makes it hot is evidently in all peppers in varying degrees.  Habenero's the hottest, most concentrated, but cayenne runs a cheaper, but respectable second.  Habenero's rated around 200,000 for heat.  Cayenne's 75,000, compared to jalapeno at around 5000.

Anyway, if you have a pallete that's unaccustomed to that sort of abuse you can buy cayenne molido and pack it into gel caps... I use one gram...(there's a device available from most health product outlets to make packing gel caps a breeze).

And once you have the caps, the molido and the method of packing the gel caps you can take enough of that stuff to keep your heart pumping long after your brains off in Andromeda or whereever it goes  when it dies.

Great stuff, this stuff for the human heart, for arthritis, for topical anti inflamatory.

Also, mosquitoes won't bother you.

Something to keep in mind once you get so your body remembers all the lousy things you did to it when you were younger.

Hi shalini:
Thanks for the comment.
I've always assumed all that pepper in my system was the reason mosquitoes don't bite me, but maybe it's something else. Maybe my scintillating personality.

Or maybe it only works for non-jackpot mosquitoes.

You are very right about cayenne pepper, it is very great stuff, for circulation, the heart, energy, sinus problems, etc, you name it, I almost forgot, it is also good for the immune system.
Put some on your food every single day, in the long run you will be very very happy that you did.
There is hardly anything at all better than cayenne pepper, forget about any other kinds of peppers, nothing beats cayenne, nothing.
Very good post.

Thanks for the comment. You and I have found something we agree on. Could the be start of a long and memorable relationship. Or more likely just a good feeling knowing there's someone else on the planet who can get excited about peppers.

I love 'em.

I do my best not to let it scintillate in public, but sometimes it gets loose and cuts a few pigeon wings across the dance floor before I can catch it and pen it back up. That's the window of opportunity for the mosquitoes.

Yeah, the guy with the face furniture and rag hat is me.

Thanks for the comment.

nice to have a face to associate our chats online with...

Yep, but it's at the cost of sacrificing anonymity. People know what the guy looks like whom they think a lunatic, a fool, or an inconscionable cad.

Looks like an affable face, as far as I'm concerned!
