beauty benefits of paprika

Paprika is a spice made from dried, ground chili. It can vary from orange to deep red in colour and is generally less spicy than chilli or cayenne powder. Paprika can range from mild to hot in spiciness with either a smoked or sweeter flavour.


Vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin K, carotenoids, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and folate.


Beauty benefits of paprika stem from its carotenoids galore! The mixture of lutein and zeaxanthin works to maintain a healthy eye sight. Paprikas carotenoids work to enhance radiant skin instead of a dull tone while vitamin K helps to remove the darkness under your eyes. Beauty benefits of paprika also maintain healthy and gorgeous hair as iron enhances oxygen delivery, to allow the hair to continue to grow while Vitamin B6 helps to prevent hair loss by stimulating healthy growth of cells. This creates a healthy environment for hair growth, revitalising your cells for strong, shiny locks!


Paprika is used to both colour and season meals, such as soups, rice and stews. Combine with garlic or cayenne powder to rub over chicken, meat or fish or lightly sprinkle with oil over potatoes, carrots or cauliflower before roasting.
