Description

When it comes to your health, spice is nice!

Known for their fiery flavor, chile peppers are packed with capsaicin - the phytonutrient responsible for producing their heat.

Chile peppers may also help to reduce inflammation in the body, cause the brain to release feel-good substances called endorphins and boost weight loss efforts.

Store unwashed chili peppers, wrapped in paper towels, in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. Store dried chili peppers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to four months.
