Hot pepper owes its spiciness to the substance capsaicin. Capsaicin has been shown to have a number of health benefits, which is why hot peppers are recommended for anyone who loves a bit of spice and does not have stomach problems.
Capsaicin has the ability to speed up the metabolism, increase the amount of calories burned, increase the body temperature and increase the heart rate. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory effects, speeds up the blood circulation and inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
But sometimes we can go overboard with hot pepper and make the dish too spicy. There are a few tricks that will help you to neutralize (at least to some extent) the hot red pepper.
High-fat milk, cream, ayran or a large amount of fresh parsley can be added to an overly spicy dish.
Another trick to neutralize hot peppers is to increase at least some of the products you put in the dish. This way, the spiciness will be divided between more products and will not feel as strong.
