Peppers – Bell

User Rating:  / 0


Red bell peppers are very high in vitamin C and bioflavonoids. They are much higher in carotenoids than green or yellow peppers and contain vitamin B6 as well as capsaicin, a natural painkiller which is considered to be useful for arthritic pains.


Experts consider red peppers to be especially beneficial against cancer and heart disease.


That's not to say that green or yellow peppers aren't a valuable addition to your healthy diet. All peppers  contain Vitamin A, Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which helps protect again certain age-related eye problems. And, Bell peppers are also one of the few sources of flavones which help reduce the risk of breast cancer.
