Scotch Bonnet Pepper
The same nai miris that we so masochistically use as a popular condiment now. The Scotch Bonnet is originally from the Caribbean islands but is easily found growing in Sri Lanka, too. This fiery pepper, which comes in red and yellow varieties, contains capsaicin, which has been proven to be able to fight cancer and reduce excess fat buildup. It also provides excellent amounts of vitamins A and C (ascorbic acid), iron, vitamin B, carotenoids, niacin, riboflavin, dietary fibre, flavonoids, and magnesium. It has also been used in traditional medicine to treat asthma and cardio diseases. And as revealed by Gisele Bundchen – peppers seriously boost your metabolism and this one is no exception.
