AYURVEDA & MEDICINAL USES

Bell pepper is rich in nutrients that make it effective in preventing a number of diseases and promoting overall good health. Unlike other chilli peppers, the bell pepper also has much less calories and fats. They are a rich source of Vitamin C (especially red bell peppers) and help protect you from scurvy, eliminate pro-inflammatory free radicals from your body and develop resistance against potential infections. Sweet bell pepper possesses anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic, analgesic and anti-diabetic properties. It has also proven to be effective in reducing triglycerides and LDL cholesterol levels in those battling obesity.

NOTABLE FACTS

Bell peppers are not ‘hot’ compared to other peppers. You can even take a bit of it raw! This is due to the lower levels of capsaicin when compares to other types of peppers.

Since red peppers are ripe, they are the sweetest tasting of the three.
