Vitamin A... our vision

Nutritional Profile 

Cayenne pepper is an excellent source of vitamin A. It is also a very good source of vitamin E as well as a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, vitamin K, riboflavin, potassium, manganese and dietary fiber. Vitamin A is essential for vision (especially dark adaptation), immune response, bone growth, reproduction, the maintenance of the surface linings of the eyes, epithelial cell growth and repair, and the epithelial integrity of the respiratory, urinary, and intestinal tracts. Vitamin A is also important for embryonic development and the regulation of adult genes. It functions as an activator of gene expression by retinoid alpha-receptor transcription factor and ligand-dependent transcription factor.

 Deficiency of vitamin A is found among malnourished, elderly, and chronically sick populations in the United States, but it is more prevalent in developing countries. Abnormal visual adaptation to darkness, dry skin, dry hair, broken fingernails, and decreased resistance to infections are among the first signs of vitamin A

Cayenne Pepper will help you boost your weight loss program, will make your skin look great and will help in the cure of several illnesses. Please Google "cayenne pepper" and start enjoying its Blessings. My favorite morning tea: hot Apple Cider with cayenne pepper, lemon juice, cinnamon and honey... try it you will love it.

When I first got to know these peppers, I thought,  that is too hot for me... I tried it and found its hit to be different than jalapenos, more agreeable and it goes away fast. 

Keep yourself healthy and beautiful
