Health Benefits

Chilli peppers and chilli powder are often used to flavour foods, while especially spicy chilli may be reserved for dares. But hidden behind the tangy flavour of this vegetable is an array of health benefits you should know. Here are just a few benefits you may enjoy when eating chilli's.

Helps in Digestion

Lal Mirch powder improves the secretion of gastric juices, accelerating digestion and relieving issues like constipation and gas. It also reduces harmful bacteria in your gut, keeping your intestines healthy. These properties have made it an essential part of every Indian cuisine.

Maintains Blood Pressure Levels

Red chillies are high in potassium, and so is their powder. Potassium relaxes the blood vessels in your body and helps maintain blood pressure levels. They also have capsaicin, an active component that reduces blood pressure and improves circulation. 

Anti-inflammatory

The capsaicin found in red chilli powder also has anti-inflammatory properties, which reduce inflammation and pain, particularly in muscles and joints.

Helps in Weight Loss

It is common knowledge that red chilli powder aids in weight loss. Once again, we have the capsaicin in red chillies to thank for this, as it reduces appetite and accelerates fat burning by increasing the body's metabolism. 

Improves Cognitive Function

Red chilli powder has iron, increasing haemoglobin production and blood flow. This, in turn, helps the brain work optimally, improving learning, thinking, reasoning, remembering, problem-solving, decision making, and attention.

Improves Heart Health

The wonder component capsaicin found in red chillies also reduces triglycerides, cholesterol, and platelet aggregation in the blood, improving heart health. It also prevents the formation of blood clots, which is again a plus for heart health.

Helps in Nasal Congestion

Red chilli powder can thin the mucus formed in the nasal passages when you have a cold, which helps in clearing it out. This is why doctors and physicians advise eating spicy foods and drinking soups with red chilli powder when you have a cold.

Builds Immunity and Fights Diseases

Red chilli powder has significant amounts of vitamin C, strengthening the immune system and helping your body fight infections and diseases. It also helps reduce free radicals in the body and is also known to reduce the chances of cancer.

Improves Eye Health

One teaspoon of red chilli powder has 9% of your RDA (requisite daily amount) of vitamin A, which is known to improve eyesight and prevent eye diseases such as night blindness.

Improves Skin and Hair

Healthy skin requires vitamin C for collagen production, an essential protein that skin and hair have, and vitamin A, which keeps hair moisturized and in good condition. Red chilli powder has both, in addition to vitamin E, which is an antioxidant known for its benefits for skin and hair. Thus, Lal Mirch powder is highly beneficial to your skin and hair.
