A 2018 study published in Food Science & Nutrition said that chilli peppers - which are packed with dietary fiber, vitamins A, B6, C and K1, minerals like potassium and copper and powerful phytochemicals like capsaicin, capsanthin, lutein and ferulic acid - can play a role in minimizing nutritional deficiencies.

The hot benefits of chilli peppers:

A study published in PloS One in 2017 suggests that there is an inverse relationship between chilli pepper consumption and all-cause mortality - meaning that adults who ate chilli peppers had a 13% lower risk of death compared to those who didn’t.

Another study published in Bioscience Reports in 2017 suggests that chilli pepper consumption boosts metabolism, suppresses excess calorie intake, improves micronutrient status and therefore helps lose weight.

This study says that chilli peppers can be used to reduce the risks of obesity and weight gain and may even be a potential therapeutic method for those already suffering from obesity.

A new study presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2020 suggests that consumption of chilli peppers can increase longevity, particularly by cutting your risks of cardiovascular and cancer mortality.

People who consumed chillies, the study noted, had a 26% relative reduction in cardiovascular mortality, 23% relative reduction in cancer mortality and a 25% relative reduction in all-cause mortality. The study concludes that consuming chilli peppers is likely to help you live longer.
