So, what is capsanthine?

Capsanthin is a red carotenoid pigment found in peppers, particularly in red and orange varieties. It belongs to the same family of compounds as beta-carotene and lycopene. Capsanthin has potent antioxidant properties and has been shown to protect cells from oxidative damage, which can lead to various diseases. Besides its health benefits, capsanthin is used as a natural food coloring agent due to its bright red color. It is commonly added to a variety of food products, such as beverages, dairy products, snacks, and confectionery. Capsanthin is also used in cosmetics and skincare products due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
