Peppers — hot or not – spicy or sweet, contain many phytochemicals, which are naturally occurring compounds found in plants.
Many of peppers’ phytochemicals have antioxidant abilities. This means they can help neutralize free radicals in the body, which damage cells. So they may help prevent or reduce symptoms of certain diseases.
Consuming just one yellow pepper provides the body with 7 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin A, 15 percent of vitamin B6, 568 percent of vitamin C and 500 percent of potassium.
This means that even if you only eat a few pieces of the pepper, you’re still providing your body with a nutritious and beneficial snack.
