Incredible health benefits of Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are lovely to look at such that it is always almost impossible not to pick a few when doing your grocery shopping. Also, there’s just something about them that just says healthy. You can use them to give your salad some color , you can roast them among other uses.

These are some of the health benefits packed in those bell peppers:

•Bell peppers are packed with Vitamin A and C. Just one cup a day and you get the required amount of the vitamins.

• Still on Vitamin C. The Vitamin C boosts your immune system and also helps to keep skin looking healthy.

•The bell pepper is a good source of Vitamin E, which plays a key role in keeping skin and hair looking healthy.

•Bell peppers also contain vitamin B6, which is essential for the health of the nervous system and helps renew cells.

•Red bell peppers contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids,  particularly beta-carotene, which lavish you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

•The capsaicin in bell peppers has multiple health benefits. Studies show that it reduces ‘bad’ cholesterol, controls diabetes, brings relief from pain and eases inflammation.

•If cooked for a short period on low heat, bell peppers retain most of their sweet, almost fruity flavor and flavonoid content, which is a powerful nutrient.

•The sulfur content in bell peppers makes them play a protective role in certain types of cancers.

•Certain enzymes in bell peppers, such as lutein, protect the eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration later in life.
