I have been enjoying wonderful, colorful, crunchy and tasty bell peppers. They come in green, red, yellow, orange, purple, brown and black. Their size varies from round and short about a size of a quarter to thin and long finger length.
Bell peppers, especially the red variety, is full of vitamin C. Beta-carotene in bell peppers has many health benefits including:
1). Low in calories -- for example one cup equals about 45 calories and you will get more than your daily requirements of Vitamin A and C.
2). Boosts your immune system.
3). Vitamin E in bell pepper helps keep your skin youthful.
4). Protects you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
5). Reduced bad cholesterol.
6). Helps controls diabetes.
