Is Red Pepper A Nightshade?

Many red peppers are considered a nightshade, although not all. Red pepper is actually good for you and does not offer any serious side effects apart from the occasional upset stomach. Nightshade plants include bell peppers, hot peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and tobacco, and most forms of red pepper. Some nightshades are edible, harmless, and contain restorative properties, while others are poisonous or contain some irritating chemicals, which cause discomfort or pain, as well as cause inflammation. Some nightshades are also potentially lethal, although this is not the case for red peppers.
