Health Benefits of the Fiery Chilli Health Tonic
Tomatoes contain all four major carotenoids: alpha- and beta-carotene, lutein, and lycopene. These carotenoids may have individual benefits, but also have synergy as a group (that is, they interact to provide health benefits).
Honeydew melons are low in calories and high in their water content. They provide an excellent source of vitamin C and are also a very good source of potassium, copper, and B vitamins (including thiamine, niacin, B6, and pantothenic acid).
Carrot juice is thought to reduce the risks of many different types of cancer including skin and breast cancer, often thought to be due to the high amounts of beta carotene which changes to Vitamin A in the body.
Chillies contain high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A, both important immune system boosters, as well as some of the B vitamins and vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin that is an antioxidant. They are also thought to be cancer inhibitors.
