Chili Powder

Health Benefits

Chilies are rich in Vitamin A and C and contain a sizable amount of antioxidants and carotenoids. Capsaicin, the substance that gives chilies their characteristic 'hotness', has been found to be helpful in fighting inflammation, clearing congestion, boosting immunity, reducing blood cholesterol, preventing stomach ulcers, lowering the risk of Type 2 diabetes, and act as a natural pain reliever. Compounds of capsaicin also significantly increase thermogenesis (heat production) and oxygen consumption for more than 20 minutes after they are eaten, and, thereby, help in losing weight by its faster calorie burning properties.
