Stops premature aging
Paprika has large amounts of beta-carotene too, which becomes vitamin A in our bodies. This essential vitamin helps you maintain a smooth, wrinkle-free skin but also protects your overall tissue health. Vitamin A helps you have resistant skin, healthy bones, and it can even protect you at a cellular level against oxidation.
Everything from better blood circulation to skin elasticity to controlled melanin, paprika might substitute some of your beauty products someday.
