One of the most famous reported health benefits of jalapeños is its ability to combat 40 types of cancer cells. Jalapeños are packed with vitamin C and capsaicin that are known to fight against free radicals, which are likely to trigger the development of cancer cells. Another significant health benefit of eating jalapeños is their dense source of essential nutrients. Jalapeños contain vitamin C and vitamin B6 in abundance. While Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and keeps your skin youthful and firm, vitamin B6 is an essential nutrient involved in over 140 bodily reactions, including reducing symptoms of depression, Alzheimer’s and treating anaemia.
