Chili Leaves : Good For Health?




This just came through email. I wonder whether it is true.

辣椒葉蛋白氨基酸種類齊全,總含量高出辣椒果實近3倍。其中有防癌作用的元素硒,辣椒葉中的含量也高于辣椒果實近1倍。並且辣椒葉還含有豐富的鈣質、胡蘿卜素,多種維生素和其他營養物質。適量吃辣椒葉能促進胃液分泌,增進食欲,適用于消化不良、腸胃脹氣、胃寒痛等症。常食辣椒葉還能起到驅寒暖胃、補肝明目、減肥美容的作用。辣椒葉味道甘甜鮮嫩,口感很好。既可單獨做菜,也可與肉類同炒,還可煮湯。



Chili leaves contain complete range of 蛋白氨基酸 [amino acid ?]. almost 4 times compared to the chili fruits. They also contain more than double what chili fruits have of 元素硒 , which are anti-cancerous substance. On top of that, chili leaves are rich in calcium, beta carotene, various vitamins and other nutrients.


Eating a suitable quantity of chili leaves enhances secreation of digestive juices, improves appetite and are good for reducing indigestion, gastric and stomach discomfort. Regular intake of chili leaves also helps maintain body heat, strengthening liver, improving eyesight, reduces weight and improves
beauty.


Chili leaves are tasty and can be cooked alone, fried with meat or for making soup.

Justin,every food had their good qualities!Just we had to make sure the intake are moderate.My aunt from Penang ate chillies and belacan a lot every day previously.Alas she had to stop after one of her kidneys failed to function anymore ten years ago.The doctors said her previous favourite food was connected to her condition ,only BECAUSE she took too much. I am not joking!!

Justin, A true Malaysian & cilyhot,

I have achieved my aim in blogosphere. I wish not to elaborate further over here.

My apologies to you, Justin, for causing you inconveniences in any way.

Being moderate in all things we do is what we should do, in virtual or in real world.
