The Nutritional Red Peppers Benefits
Duration: 57 seconds

Red bell peppers are packed with nutrients and they're a great choice to add to a healthy diet.

They're packed with vitamin C as well as the vitamins B6, thiamine, folate and beta carotene. Due to their deep red, rich colour, they contain many phytonutreints, including collagenic acid as well as zeaxanthin. Both of these can help to reduce your risk of developing cancer and prevent heart disease.

Try putting red bell peppers in stir fries or stuffing them with various fillings as well as adding them as a purTe into soups. For more information on how to add red bell peppers to your diet, visit your local food store or speak with your dietitian for more information.
