Abstract

Introduction: This study investigated the characteristics of the powder, the concentration of the ions, and the growth characteristics of Chili that were irrigated with the natural magnesium- zinc ionised water. The findings revealed that the ion dissolution rate was higher for greater water temperatures.

Methods: Extended sintering of the zinc-modified natural serpentinite powder at 400°C reduced the number of dissolved magnesium ions and increased the number of dissolved zinc ions. The Chili planting experiment was performed with two groups: 1) Chili irrigated with natural magnesium- zinc ionised water (natural magnesium-zinc Chili) and 2) Chili irrigated with distilled water (distilled-water Chili).

Results: The natural magnesium-zinc Chilis were discovered to have higher concentrations of magnesium and zinc ions in various parts. Furthermore, during the later stages of growth, the natural magnesium-zinc Chili had a larger body and did not easily turn yellow, resulting in better freshness. This study used modified serpentine powder to cultivate natural magnesium-zinc Chili. Appropriate powder roasting conditions and the rates of magnesium and zinc dissolution were established, and the growth characteristics of natural magnesium-zinc Chili were determined.

Conclusion: The Chilis can help humans ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages by sufficient zinc and magnesium intake.

Keywords: chili, pepper, magnesium ion, zinc ion, serpentine, metabolism, immune system.
