Benefits of Jalapeno

plant food

Plant foods such as jalapenos, contain different phytonutrients, or plant nutrients, which are beneficial for your health. Carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin are two nutrients found in jalapenos. These compounds are deposited in the retina of your eyes. They help to protect your eyes from harmful wavelengths of light and help to prevent oxidative stress in your eyes. Consuming lutein and zeaxanthin may help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts, according to the American Optometric Association.
