1.  Helps prevent the onset of cancer

Peppers, especially red peppers, are rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and carotenoids, which help protect the body’s cells from oxidative damage. This antioxidant action can help reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer.

2.  Reduces cholesterol

Bell peppers contain soluble fibers that can help lower blood cholesterol levels. Soluble fibers help eliminate LDL cholesterol from the body, lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease.

3.  Promotes sleep

This food is a great source of vitamin B6, which is involved in the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone. An adequate amount of vitamin B6 in the diet can help improve sleep quality.

4.  Prevents anemia

Studies indicate that foods rich in vitamin C are essential for the proper absorption of iron in the body. By consuming bell peppers you can increase iron absorption and help prevent the onset of anemia.

5.  Boosts immunity

Bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is known to strengthen the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates the production of defense cells, such as lymphocytes and macrophages, which help the body fight infections and diseases.
