The Power of Paprika

3. Paprika and Heart Health

When it comes to heart health, a 2011 study from Penn State University found that cooking with a blend of antioxidant spices (like paprika, cinnamon, and turmeric) reduces the stress that high-fat foods (or triglycerides) put on the heart.

Paprika’s high antioxidant value is also credited by the British Journal of Nutrition for its ability to significantly lower LDL (bad) cholesterol while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol.
