Description for "capsicum in Kanji"
Pepper is a spice native to Central and South America and has been widely cultivated in this area for thousands of years. On the other hand, it was brought to Europe after the discovery of the new continent at the end of the 15th century.
However, due to its stimulating spiciness and strong fertility, it has spread from Asia to Africa in just about 50 years. Today, it is one of the most important spices and is an integral part of cooking around the world.
Capsaicin, which is the main source of spiciness contained in capsicum, has recently attracted a great deal of attention because it has the function of increasing the secretion of adrenaline and burning body fat.
It also has excellent effects on digestive juice secretion, sweating, blood circulation promotion, and analgesia. In addition, vitamin C and carotene are said to have the effect of increasing antioxidant activity and reducing bad cholesterol.
For these reasons, capsicum is said to be effective in preventing and eliminating obesity, as well as in preventing and improving anorexia, indigestion, summer heat, poor circulation, and arteriosclerosis.
Japanese says “ban syo” and “tougarashi”.
