All chillies contain capsaicin which is known to have many health benefits including boosting the immune system, eliminating inflammation and helping with weight loss. Some people are concerned that because these chillies are so hot, it could actually kill them. This is false. Although eating an extremely hot chilli causes your pain receptors to react as if you are experiencing pain, it's only an illusion. They won't do any damage unless you have an allergy or an ulcer. You should not have a problem eating these chillies unless you know that spicy foods and hot peppers negatively affect your health. If you don't normally eat spicy foods, it's probably not a great idea to go straight for a Carolina Reaper, Trinidad scorpion or ghost chilli. Instead, ease yourself into eating the ghost peppers by trying more mild peppers like the jalapeno first. But if you're experimenting and discover you can't take the heat, a glass of milk should help you recover.
100% Ghost Chilli.
