This year's hot pepper plants planted
- 2× Red Carolina Reaper
- 2× Yellow Carolina Reaper
Not sure why I'm growing hot peppers again, because I have enough dried ones to last a lifetime 😂😂😂 I guess I just grow them because it's fun 🙌
I'm still working on my heirloom tomato garden, but it's just getting too hot in the sun to work. I'll continue later today.
Sweet sweet Friday!! 🌶🌶🌶🌶
Você sabia que além de ser termogênica, como todas as pimentas, a pimenta-caiena é uma variedade especialmente adequada para o consumo humano, pois aumenta o metabolismo em até 25%, se tomada na dose correta, todos os dias. Também contribui para manter as artérias saudáveis, diminui o colesterol e ainda aumenta o desejo sexual, por melhorar a irrigação sanguínea e aumentar a quantidade de oxigênio disponível para as células.
Lembre-se de que todas essas propriedades só serão obtidos se você tiver hábitos de vida saudáveis.
Confira os benefícios nutricionais da pimenta-caiena:
➡️ Ela contém vitamina A, B, C, E, K e vitaminas do complexo B.
➡️ É uma fonte de minerais como o cálcio, manganês e potássio.
➡️ Contém betacaroteno, que combate os danos oxidativos causados por radicais livres.
As pimentas contêm “capsaicina”, substância que tem um efeito anti-inflamatório, analgésico, antioxidante e ajuda a prevenir e tratar os problemas cardiovasculares e doenças associadas com a inflamação dos tecidos, como as dores nas articulações.
Outra virtude desta substância é o seu poder para desobstruir as vias aéreas, no caso de congestão, assim como o eucalipto e o gengibre. A capsaicina também aumenta a produção de sucos gástricos e enzimas, melhorando a digestão e prevenindo úlceras e gastrite.
A ingestão regular de pimenta-caiena também ajuda a moderar o apetite, sendo uma aliada poderosa no combate ao sobrepeso e à obesidade. Você pode consumi-la in natura, em pó ou em cápsulas para aproveitar os benefícios dessa pimenta.
Tonight, the inception of this account began a quest of flavor and discovery 3 months in the making. That may not sound like very much time, but that's how long we, Newt & Sal, have been consumed with sputtering visions of delectable capsaicin. Our friendship began with beer and Godzilla, survived an attempted podcast, and even limped through a few failed authorships. So, like any great home-spun business, we researched, paced, envisioned, and finally, tonight, took a great leap into the inciting incident. Vanity and modern marketing practices demand we document this proverbial smashing of champagne.
Red Habanero and Black Coffee by @queenmajestyhotsauce is an explosively aromatic experience, but still enough of a straight-faced hot sauce to pair with each and every meal. Full video review on my #YouTube channel - link in profile!
I'm getting a lot better on how long I can hold my breath for when I open the lid to stir Hot Pepper Jam...it's only taken 7 years.
Capsaicin is the chemical compound in peppers that make you feel the spiciness. While some hold much more than others, (bell vs habanero) we as humans love to test our limits. It is TRUE that milk helps ease the pain, while water potentially making it worse. The fatty proteins found in milk fit like a puzzle piece 3some with the shape of capsaicin and our taste buds!! Water actually spreading the capsaicin along our tongues to enjoy the sizzle in more places 💀
If I had a superpower of any choice it would probably be some sort of capsaicin shooter or something hahah, Sounds more like a villain, but I could work with it.
Why does zinc cause nausea in some individuals, why does it seem more common in women, and what can we do about it? /// I’ve never really seen a satisfactory explanation for this. Doing research around appetite, I came across an article showing that zinc caused the release of cholecystokinin (CCK). CCK suppresses appetite, in excess can cause nausea, and seems to synergize in those regards with serotonin through the 5HT3 receptor. The release of CCK by zinc may involve TRPV, TRPM, GPR39, and CaSR. Women may be more sensitive to the effects because of higher estrogen levels which increase serotonin (and stimulation through 5HT3 receptors and other pathways – see previous post). /// What can we do about it? The combination of cinnamon, ginger, and capsaicin (from hot peppers like paprika and cayenne) work together to block or desensitize TRPV, TRPA, TRPM, and 5HT3. There’s a commercial product called HOTSHOT that exploits this to reduce muscle cramps. Not sure on the ideal timing, but maybe 15-30 minutes before the zinc. Try it out and let me know if it helped in the comments. Otherwise - taking zinc with meals usually helps, maybe by reducing or slowing the exposure of cells along the GI tract to the zinc. Since protein and fat (especially polyunsaturated fats) stimulate CCK, you might have better luck if the meal is slightly higher in carbohydrate and lower in protein and fat (especially polyunsaturated fat). The last option here takes a bit more work but would be following a tryptophan restricted diet – which would reduce the amount of serotonin synthesized. In a bit of a proof of concept, one study showed that serotonin depletion more than doubled the threshold for GI pain (visceral hypersensitivity).
