Red pepper, tasty, and healthy

The Spanish or red pepper is actually a collective name for the elongated chilies. Some people may find it reluctant because the red pepper will take away the taste of the dish because it is too hot. Meanwhile, some find it tasty and essential for every meal. Moreover, red pepper is very healthy.
 
Origin of red pepper
 
The origin of the red pepper is in Central America. It is the Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch who have ensured that we can find the peppers all over the world. This pepper is from the genus Capsicum of the nightshade family (Solanacaea). The peppers are grown in all colors: red, green, yellow or white.

Antioxidant effect
 
In addition to the vitamin C, red pepper also contains vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Further, the red pepper also contains beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein and cryptoxanthin. They have a strong antioxidant effect. The minerals in the red pepper are manganese, iron, potassium, and magnesium.
 
Prevent cold
 
The red pepper contains a lot of vitamin C even more than the orange. The vitamins make a cold or sinusitis stop quite quickly.
 
Heart and vessels
 
The present vitamins A and C and bioflavonoids in red pepper keep the arteries elastic. Cholesterol residue on blood vessel walls can also be prevented, and so does arteriosclerosis. Furthermore, the red pepper is good for the heart because it contains TAG (Triacylglycerol) which plays a significant role in metabolism.

If you want to lose weight, regularly eat red pepper. By the thermogenic effect of hot, you sweat, and you're going to consume more energy and therefore burn fat. It contributes to keeping body weight stable. However, eating too much red pepper is not good for your health.

Disadvantages red pepper
 
Although there are many good vitamins in the pepper, it is not advisable to eat them excessively. If you eat too many peppers, you can get stomach problems. If you think you have taken too much, try to neutralize it by eating some yogurt.
 
Also, note that you should not rub your eye after cutting a red pepper with the same hand. It can give a horrible burning sensation.
 
Red pepper is tasty
 
Most people eat red pepper because of the hot flavor that comes off which can also be milder. For example, you can get rid of the seeds of red pepper through cuts before put it in an omelet or savory pancake.
 
A few rings of red pepper (with or without seeds) in soup gives the soup instantly tastier. You do not have to use too much. It is an excellent seasoning for vegetable or chicken soup.
 
Finally
 
The red pepper is very healthy and tasty. Only eat the pepper if you find it tasty. Are you afraid of the spicy taste it gives? If you halve the red pepper, the taste will be much reduced.
