Benefits of Jalapeno
Vitamins and Minerals
Jalapenos contain heart healthy vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, which promotes blood clotting; potassium and magnesium, which help the heart contract; and iron, which carries oxygen throughout the body. A single jalapeno pepper contains 6.2 milligrams of vitamin C, which is about 10 percent of the daily recommendation. In addition to being an antioxidant, vitamin C promotes a healthy immune system, improves wound healing and maintains healthy tissues.
