The bell pepper is, yes, sweet and versatile, but did you know that it also helps you fight everything from the common cold to cancer?

Botanically, Peppers are a fruit, but we tend to think of them as a vegetable. While the other cultivars within this species are famous for their capsaicin content, that’s the compound that makes other peppers hot, bell peppers contain no capsaicin at all and are referred to in many cultures as “sweet peppers”. They top the list of foods with the highest levels of Vitamin C. A large red pepper provides more than 300% of our daily requirement. So if you’d like to reduce your risk of illness, heart disease and cancer, keep eating plenty of those Red Peppers
