Benefits of Smoked Paprika
Paprika has carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin. Just so you know, lutein and zeaxanthin are good for vision, preventing the sun's harmful rays from damaging eye tissue. On the other hand, vitamin A enhances night vision and contributes to healthy cell growth.
It is also a good source of vitamin E, which helps control blood clotting and contributes to the healthy functioning of blood vessels, as it acts as an antioxidant, preventing damage to cellular lipids.
Paprika is also an excellent source of iron, which supports the function of hemoglobin and myoglobin, two proteins charged with transporting and storing the oxygen that tissues need to function.
