The Naga King Chilli also known as ghost chili, ghost pepper, U-morok, naga jolokia or bhut jolokia is a unique interspecific hybrid chili pepper cultivated since time immemorial in the North Eastern states of Manipur, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and some parts of Assam.
The chili can kick your ass and make you unconscious when eaten and swallowed in full piece for the first time. The Guinness World Records has also certified that this ghost pepper is the hottest on the planet, 400 times hotter than Tabasco Sauce, and rated at more than one million SHUs(Scoville Heat Units).
Guys, this Naga Viper can send chills down your spine in aching nervousness. You will shiver up and down of its unbearable bite and the intensity of the hotness is such that you will feel even your toes shudder and run around in helplessness. haha…LOL.
See this guy who eats hot chilies and who probably takes part in Chili Eating competition. Look at how he reacts at a Naga Viper. His eyes become teary and a lot of sweating!

Chilies Can Perform the Following Functions for Your Health
You might be aware of Capsaicin – the plant chemical that gives chilies their incredible heat and performs varying health benefits. You see, chilies fight cancer cells and help in controlling obesity for those with weight problems.
They help cells in the human body to produce insulin again in Type-1 diabetes patients. How beneficial is this! Not only that but also combat bad cholesterol and prevent or delay heart diseases; provides relief from diseases like rhinitis and anti-ulcer protective effect on stomachs.
They are believed to have anesthetic effects to block out pain and may be used to treat chronic pain in the future. The only possible risks are high consumption could cause stomach cancer or may inflame carcinogenic substances.
Excessive use could also induce gastro-esophageal reflux. So the intake of chilies should be proportional to the necessity of your health condition and especially, they shouldn’t be swallowed whole.

Naga King Chili is Pregnant with Capsicum Chinense & Capsicum Frutescens
It is a hybrid of capsicum chinense and capsicum frutescens.
Take a look at its stunning features in the image. So fearful and dominating! Do you know why I show ‘red color’ time and again? You see, it’s at this stage of the growth that the chili emits maximum heat and kicks your ass. So beware of the RED and DARK GREEN when its seeds are most ferocious!
Allow me a minute to explain the technical terms of capsicum or Naga Ghost Chili in the layman’s language.
- Capsicum Chinense or African Bird Pepper also known as Habaneros Pepper is the Giant in the elevation of vitamins, dietary fiber, and minerals, in addition to the compounds of capsaicin.
The cool thing is, if your diet incorporates all the nutrients offered by habanero peppers, it will help you to put off the development of several potentially grave health conditions including stroke and heart attacks – Wola!
For health problems like chronic gastric disorders – such as IBS(irritable bowel syndrome) and chronic heartburn, it is good to consult your physician before switching on to habanero pepper diets.
- Capsicum Frutescens is a species of chili pepper that is sometimes considered to be part of the species capsicum annuum which can be annual or short-lived perennial plants.
This plant is used as an analgesin or pain killer in topical ointments, nasal sprays, and dermal patches to relieve pain. It possesses antimicrobial properties and is used as a herbal medicine for low back pain.
High in dietary fiber, it enhances the digestion process and also provides remedies for constipation and associated discomfort.
The Role of Pepper and its Health Benefits
Two men were hospitalized after participating the World’s Hottest Chili Eating Competition but paradoxically, chilies could also reduce the high risk of cancer.
Capsicum or pepper fights free radicals and boost your immune system, and also have an anti-inflammatory effect on your body.
Pepper produces carotenoid, a coloring agent along with beta-carotene(a precursor of vitamin A). They are used up by your body to make vitamin A which is responsible for sharp eyesight, strong bone and healthiness of the skin.
Capsaicin is a compound that produces the pungency of capsicums and several related compounds called capsaicinoids and are produced as secondary metabolites by chili peppers.
According to SiCap, a US company, chili peppers are the latest in the fight against skin aging. It also claims that the ingredient helps the skin to absorb other active ingredients.
The ingredient has been combined with acai berries, collagen and acetyle Hexapeptide-3 to create a new anti-wrinkle formulation, by Youthful Trends.

Youthful Trends also contains one of the latest super foods acai berries which helps to control inflammation and fight the aging process. The phytosterols in the acai berries are known to reserve natural collagen levels.
In addition, the formulation contains hydrolyzed collagen and the neuropeptide acetyl hexapeptide-3, a new peptide ingredient becoming very popular in the fight for anti-aging formulations.

How to Start Taking Naga King Chili As Your Daily Dose
For those of you who are just going to try this must begin by taking only 1/8 of the whole piece shown in the image. You will want to begin with the green or yellowish.
The height of heat is found in the seed of the RED color. As a starter for your food recipes, you should be advised to consume the GREEN color first as a precautionary hint though.
Owning a kitchen garden with Naga King chili is an awesome experience. You can also do the same. I grow them only with organic manure and fertilizers. They are more health-friendly and are free from chemicals and pesticides.
Shy away from artificial yields as far as your food recipes are concerned. They breed toxicants in the body and trigger a lot of unnecessary health issues. This is a very important matter if you are in your late thirties or beginning your forties and above.
Here are a few images of this ghost chili that I personally grow in my courtyard.
I used it daily in my food menu with half the quantity of a whole. Sometimes, I use the full quantity if its color’s yellowish or green. Adding it to my chutney preparation makes my lunch and dinner yummy and exciting.
But I never use it in vegetable curry preparations except if it is with meat, fish or other sea foods.
Stay younger with a disease free body by following the given steps. Tell about it to your kith and kins.
