Paprika

Paprika comes loaded with carotenoids -- the pigments that give it its deep red color. Its lutein and zeaxanthin content benefits your eyesight by preventing harmful light rays from damaging your eye tissues, while its vitamin a content aids in night vision and plays a role in healthy cell development. A tablespoon of paprika contains 3,349 international units of vitamin a -- more than 100 percent of the daily intake requirement for men and women, set by the institute of medicine.
While, as of september 2013, the institute of medicine has not set a recommended daily intake, consuming 12 milligrams daily improves eyesight, reports the american optometric association. Each serving of paprika has 1.3 milligrams of lutein and zeaxanthin, or 11 percent of this goal. This mild paprika spice is loaded with antioxidants as well as essential vitamins and minerals that can keep your body healthy. Its rich color can be attributed to the presence of carotenoids.
Vitamin a in paprika promotes healthy cell development. Certain healthy fats are required in your diet to protect nerve cells while insulating and protecting organs. Lipoproteins are molecules made from fat and proteins that carry cholesterol through the bloodstream. Vitamin e in paprika protects the fat component of lipoproteins. It should be kept in mind that these fats are less likely to cause inflammation that contributes to heart disease.
Paprika is rich in vitamins a, e, and k which help in maintaining healthy veins and capillaries. Paprika helps to regulate blood pressure, may help improve blood circulation, may help assist digestion by normalizing acid in the stomach, and may act as an antibiotic.
Paprika contains capsaicin, whose anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects may lower the risk of cancer (also found in cayenne and red chili peppers). There's no specific recommended dose, but moderation is probably the best way to go.

Vitamin e
Vitamin e is an antioxidant that is essential to your health and your skin.
1 teaspoon of paprika has 5% of the daily intake of vitamin e recommended for your body.
Paprika also boosts your daily intake of vitamin e.
Each tablespoon provides 2 milligrams of vitamin e, or 13 percent of the recommended daily intake determined by the institute of medicine.
Vitamin e helps control blood clot formation and promotes healthy blood vessel function, and also serves as an antioxidant, preventing cellular lipids from destruction.
Getting enough vitamin e in your diet also promotes healthy cell communication.

Iron
Adding paprika to your diet also helps you get more iron.
The iron from your diet supports your cellular metabolism -- it allows your cells to carry out a series of chemical reactions, called the electron transport chain, that result in *the energy production.
Iron also supports the function of hemoglobin and myoglobin -- two proteins tasked with transporting and storing oxygen that your tissues need to function.
A tablespoon of paprika contains 1.4 milligrams of iron, providing 8 and 18 percent of the daily recommended intakes for women and men, respectively, determined by the institute of medicine.
1 tablespoon of paprika has 9% of your recommended daily intake of iron (based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet)
Iron helps carry oxygen through your body and helps with energy levels.

Vitamin a
Paprika has multiple chemical compounds in it that convert to vitamin a.
1 teaspoon of paprika has 37% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin a (based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet)
Vitamin a supports cell growth, is an antioxidant, and plays many important roles throughout our bodies.

Vitamin b-6
1 teaspoon of paprika has 4% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin b-6
Vitamin b-6 is part of a group of coenzymes that are responsible for creating glucose, producing hemoglobin, and reducing your chance of developing cardiovascular issues.

Cardiovascular benefits
Vitamin c in paprika provides protection against cardiovascular disease, particularly heart attack and stroke.
Vitamin e is an antioxidant that prevents damage by free radicals, reducing the risk of heart disease.
Being loaded with minerals like iron, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, it helps to purify your blood and improve heart health.

Carotenoids
The color of paprika comes from its high content of carotenoids.
Your body can convert some of these compounds, such as beta-carotene, to vitamin a.
Carotenoids also act as antioxidants, thus boosting the vitamin e benefits of paprika.
In addition to these supporting roles, the carotenoids in paprika can delay the gradual deterioration of your eyesight as you age.
To fully reap the benefits of carotenoids, you should always combine paprika with a source of fats.
For example, you can boost your carotenoid intake by tossing chopped vegetables in paprika, herbs and olive oil before roasting.
For a uniquely zesty, savory and carotenoid-rich snack, you can also try topping lightly buttered popcorn with smoked paprika.

Wound healing
Paprika is a good source of vitamin e, which helps in producing red blood cells.
It also helps in forming clots in case of cuts and wounds, facilitating quick wound healing.

Eye health
Paprika is packed with carotenoids, which is what gives it a red color.
Compounds such as lutein and zeaxanthin help filter harmful sun rays from your eyes, preventing eye damage and diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts.
Vitamin a plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy eyesight and basically refers to a group of compounds called carotenoids.
Paprika contains four carotenoids namelyabeta cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene, lutein, and zea-xanthin.
This vitamin is used by the eyes to turn light into vision.
Lutein and zea-xanthin reduce the risk of developing age related macular degeneration and cataracts.
It is advisable to combine paprika with a source of fats such as olive oil to fully reap the benefits of carotenoids.
