The earliest evidence of chile peppers in the human diet is from Mexico, where excavations at Tamaulipas and Tehuacan contain chile seeds. History books credit Christopher Columbus with discovering the chile pepper in the West Indies. Explorers who followed soon learned that the pungent pod was an integral part of the Indian's culinary, medical and religious lives. From Europe, capsicum was introduced to Africa and India. The most common use was as a condiment, still used to this day. It is formulated with Stomach Protection System (SPSTM ), which contains natural ingredients that gel and thus may help reduce stomach irritation.
