Bell Pepper – prevents Bloating and Inflammation, great source of vitamin C

Consuming Bell pepper may be one of the easiest and most practical way of preventing Inflammation. It can also help you calm the Stomach, since they stimulate the flow of Gastric juices through it. Bell Pepper contains great amounts of Beta Carotene (about half of the required daily quantity of Beta Carotene can be compensated by eating 100g of peppers).


Additionally, Beta Carotene is then converted to Vitamin A. Other than that, Peppers also are rich in Vitamin C which together with vitamin A serve to protect the cells, thus preventing Cancer. These Vitamins in greater amount can be found in Red Peppers, rather than in Green.

When it comes to Proteins and Carbohydrates, they are present in very small amounts in the Peppers. That also applies to the amount of Fat, which is almost non present, so it is safe to say that Peppers should not be excluded from your dinner. Also worth mentioning is that many people prefer hot Peppers. These Peppers are hot due to the compound known as Capsaicin. Adding Hot Peppers to your meal can help the circulation by stimulating it and causing Blood Coagulation.
