8 Health Benefits of Green Chillies

By February 7, 2016Uncategorized

Sometimes, you just need a kick of spice. Even though our products are not spicy, we do use green chillies in a variety of our products for a subtle hint of zing. However, green chillies are not just great for spice but also offer a variety of health benefits.

1. Improves Immunity

Green chillies are not quite up there with oranges, however they are still a fantastic source of Vitamin C. When you’ve got a cold, green chillies can help to unblock your nose. In addition, the Vitamin C helps to strengthen your natural immunity to various illnesses.

2. Improves your skin

This spicy saviour is also rich in Vitamin E, which is essential for producing particular natural skin oils – leaving your skin looking great!

3. No calories!

Eat as many green chillies as you like, as they have zero calories and will help you to maintain a healthy diet.

4. Reduces blood sugar level

Green chillies are proven to balance your blood sugar levels. If you are diabetic, they may be the answer to a healthy diet.

5. Benefits digestion

With more than enough dietary fibres, eating chillies can help to speed up digestion (just don’t eat too many at once!).

6. They leave you smiling

When consumed, chillies release endorphins into the brain, which helps to keep you upbeat. If you’re having a tiresome day at the office, perhaps a chilli will help.

7. Fights bacterial infections

Green chillies have anti-bacterial properties, which may help to keep infections – especially skin infections – at bay.

8. Rich in iron

If you’re prone to iron deficiency, or simply feel that you’re not getting enough iron in your everyday diet, try adding green chillies to your diet as they are a great natural source of iron.
