The Benefits of Bell Peppers

I know lots of people who doesn't like eating bell peppers, even though they have many health benefits specially when they're rich with Vitamin C and Vitamin A. You will be very shocked when I tell you that a single Bell Pepper has more Vitamin C than an Orange !

Also the huge amount of Vitamin A in the Bell Peppers may save your life specially if your love is a smoker or you're always exposed to secondhand smoke since Vitamin A promote lung health.

And who said only Carrots can give you a better eyesight ? .. Bell Peppers contains beta-carotene ( Found in Carrots ), phytonutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, which have been found to protect against macular degeneration, the main cause of blindness in the elderly.
