Paprika is a spice derived from dried and ground bell peppers or chili peppers. This versatile ingredient not only adds flavor to various dishes but also offers numerous health benefits.
Paprika contains vitamin A, antioxidants, and carotenoids that promote eye health by preventing age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and other eye diseases. Additionally, paprika can boost immunity by stimulating white blood cells' production in the body, thereby fighting off infections and viruses.
It may also lower cholesterol levels due to its high concentration of capsaicin, which improves blood flow and reduces the risk of coronary heart disease. Moreover, paprika has anti-inflammatory properties that could alleviate pain caused by inflammation in joints associated with conditions like arthritis or gout.
