    Health Tip of the Day!!-chili-powder.jpg

    Chili Powder - One teaspoon of chili powder contains 4.8 mg of vitamin C ,an antioxidant. Your body uses antioxidants to fight damage from free radicals, which are unstable molecules created during the energy creation process that can increase your risk of developing harmful health conditions like cancer and heart disease. Vitamin C also helps strengthen your immune system and heal injuries.
    Use of chili can get you control over your blood sugar. They help you in maintaining the amount of insulin in your blood and as a result, your sugar remains under control and people, who take chili powder in their daily diet, face less diabetic.

    There are about 2,224 IU of vitamin A in a tablespoon of chili powder. Our body needs vitamin A for the maintenance of your eyesight as you age as well as to contribute to maintaining the health of your bones, teeth, skin, internal membranes and reproductive systems.

    They are anti-inflammatory in nature. An element which is called Capsaicin is found in chili and it helps the body to produce neuropeptide associated with inflammatory.

    Another very important advantage of chili powders is in the digestive system. They always help in digesting better and increase the speed of metabolism. People who have got some extra weight around their waste and they are looking to bring that amount down, should include chili powder in their diet and it will work magically for them.

    But do not try to over dose yourself with the chili because excess of anything is bad. There is no doubt that chili powder does help in lots of problems but when you try to use it more then, it can give you lots of side effects.
