Red Chillis contains two main constituents - Capsaicin and Capsanthin. Capsaicin & other capsaicinoids present in chili peppers are responsible for causing the characteristic pungent intensity. Besides Capsaicin, other capsaicinoids present may be dihydrocapsaicin, nordihydrocapsaicin, homodihydrocapsaicin, and homocapsaicin. These capsaicinoids are known for their pungency effects and produce different levels of pungency when applied. When consumed, capsaicinoids bind with the pain receptors responsible for sensing heat in our mouth & throat, thereby causing brain to respond to burning sensation and increase perspiration and release of endorphins. The heat / pungency in chillis is measured in Scoville heat units (SHU)
Capsanthin and capsorubin are the main coloring compounds (among other carotenoids). Capsanthin is the main and commercially available compound for coloring application. The color in chillis is measured in Color units.

Capsaicinoids have significant antibiotic activity and used as ailing agent in medicines for improving conditions of the heart & blood vessels, reduce cholesterol levels, reduce excessive blood clotting.
