    I do love herbs and spices but sadly, I can't tolerate much heat.

    Yes, and as I understand it, it's the heat that produces the health benefits....destroying all the unhealthy stuff in the body. I've tried several times to introduce more "heat" into my diet (ref: habanero peppers), but it's not happening. Anything strong enough to be measured by the scoville heat scale is too hot for this kid's body.

    Mr Wizard, can you take capsules, or are you saying your body reacts to chili after you eat it?

    Lol. My whole entire body reacts to heat, even capsules. Strange!! And, I'm the only one in my family with this problem. My 12 yr. old granddaughter teases me because she can eat hotter stuff than her grandpa.

    I didn't know there were capsules. Can someone recommend a product for me? I'm willing to try, just for those heat benefits because like Mr. Wizard, I just can't acclimate myself to hotter and hotter foods. Yup, my younger daughter spent time in the Peace Corps in Thailand, and cooks dishes that make me feel like I just bit down on a road flare!
