Did you know that some cultures consider Chili Pepper to be the healthiest spice in the world?
A spice known for its characteristic hot taste, Chili peppers are rich in various vitamins and minerals. Chilli powder is a universal spice and is a particular African favorite (perhaps that’s why our Chili Powder tastes the great and spicy)!
Dried Chili Pepper, also called the African Red Hot Pepper, is a very hot spice derived from sun dried fruits of the African Chili pepper called Capsicum frutescens. Several times “hotter” than the cayenne pepper sold in the West, this yummy spice not only heats things up in the kitchen but also has some amazing health benefits!
Ground Chili Pepper Health Benefits
Dried pepper or hot pepper has been proven to have many health benefits. Hot pepper (Capsicum ) has been shown to be an antioxidant (which protects the body against the effect of dangerous toxins), anticarcinogenic (which helps to protect the body against cancers), and is a known hypocholesterolaemic (which helps to lower bad cholesterol in the blood).
Studies have also shown that consuming hot pepper on a regular basis will help the body fight inflammation, serve as a natural pain reliever, promote heart health, boost immunity, lower your risk of Type 2 Diabetes, and much much more.
Chili Pepper is a rich source of:
● Vitamin A (betacarotene)
● Vitamin B6, B2, B3
● Vitamin C
● Vitamin E
● Vitamin K1
