3 Healthy Things That Cayenne Pepper Does To The Body


Cayenne pepper, which comes from the nightshade family of plants, is another variety of chili pepper. Some may fear that the fact that this plant belongs to the nightshade family, shows that it may be harmful. Contrarily, like potato, eggplant, and tomato, cayenne pepper is not a deadly nightshade plant. In fact, it contains nutrients and compounds that can improve your health. This article mentions three of those benefits.

1. Cayenne pepper can improve bone health. Cayenne pepper with support from some enzymes in your body, can help to build healthy bones. This is because the alpha-carotene, and the beta-carotene that are present in cayenne pepper need to undergo some chemical processes to produce an active form of vitamin A that the body uses to promote bone health. However, this may be impossible without cayenne pepper, so, all thanks to it. (According To Healthline, On The 10th Of November, 2021, “Provitamin A carotenoids found in cayenne include alpha carotene and beta carotene, which the body can convert into the active form of vitamin A.”)

2. Cayenne pepper may help to reduce inflammation. You can consider eating cayenne pepper to reduce inflammation. This is partly because capsaicin, which helps to maintain the existence of healthy tissues during immune response, is abundantly present in cayenne pepper. Another great thing about the capsaicin content of cayenne pepper is that even though it also contains substances that boost immune response, it does not forget its role in protecting healthy tissues. But note that the evidence that backs this claim is lacking. (According To Healthline, On The 10th Of November, 2021, “Research also suggests that capsaicin has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.”)

3. Cayenne pepper packs other plant compounds and essential nutrients that may boost overall health. Recall that this article mentioned that the evidence for the claim that linked cayenne pepper with antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties was lacking. Well, the fact that cayenne pepper also contains carotenoids, vitamin C, and flavonoids, which contain anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, shows that this claim may be true. These compounds may also improve overall health.
