A Little Heat is Good For You

I’m not talking about applying heat topically with a heating pad, or sitting in a hot tub to relax your muscles, that’s a different discussion altogether.

I’m talking about adding a little heat to your body in the form of spice! I have a slight addiction to these little peppers, my sons tease me that I carry them to the table for every meal. It’s true. I enjoy the taste, but there are many benefits to these tasty little morsels:

Chili peppers contain Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and B6. Beta Carotene and Capsaicin (which gives the heat) are also a powerful antioxidants to support countless functions in your body and support your immune system.

Add a little spice to your life and give chili peppers a try! There are plenty of options at your local grocery store and soon easily found at farmers markets.
