The health benefits of natural dried chilli peppers
Natural dried chilli peppers are not only a delicious ingredient to use in cooking, but also contain numerous health benefits. Natural chilli peppers are a source of antioxidants, vitamins and active compounds such as capsaicin, which can have a positive effect on metabolism, digestion and the immune system. Capsaicin in particular has been linked to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and lower blood pressure. In addition, regular consumption of dried chilli peppers can increase thermogenesis, the process by which the body burns calories to produce heat, thus helping to control body weight. So, if you are a spice lover, consider adding natural dried chillies to your diet to enjoy their health benefits.
