5 reasons why you should eat chili peppers.

Chili is the common name given to the berry obtained from certain spicy varieties of the plant genus Capsicum  used mainly as a condiment.

Although chili peppers come from the same genus as bell peppers, they differ because they contain capsaicin, a chemical compound found in different concentrations depending on the variety, which is responsible for the berry's pungency.
