Peppers Help Maintain or Improve Health

Peppers are full of vitamins and minerals the body needs to maintain nutrient stasis or stability. They come in a variety of colors: red, yellow, green, black, orange, brown, and purple. It is interesting that each color represents a different family of phytochemicals. These phytochemicals have antioxidant abilities to help neutralize free radicals that damage cells in the body. As a result, they can help prevent or reduce symptoms of pain and inflammation.

Peppers are also a rich source of Vitamins A, B6, C and K, fiber, Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, and minerals.

Daily add Color, Flavor & Crunch to your meals with a healthy cup of a variety peppers!
