    Organic Green Pepper (1 unit)

    Overview

    Bell peppers are fruits that belong to the nightshade family.

    They are low in calories and exceptionally rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, making them an excellent addition to a healthy diet.

    Bell peppers come in various colors, such as red, yellow, orange, and green — which are unripe.

    Green, unripe peppers have a slightly bitter flavor and are not as sweet as fully ripe ones.

    Nutrition

    While oranges may be known for their high Vitamin C content, green peppers actually have double the amount of Vitamin C by weight that oranges and other citrus fruits have. Green peppers are also an excellent source of: 

    • Vitamin B6
    • Vitamin K
    • Potassium
    • Vitamin E
    • Folates
    • Vitamin A

     

    Health Benefits

    Green peppers are a popular vegetable to keep in your kitchen because they are incredibly versatile and can be added to almost any savory dish. Aside from their versatility, the compounds in green peppers can offer a wide array of health benefits. 

    Improve Eye Health

    Green peppers are packed with a chemical compound called lutein. Lutein gives certain foods—including carrots, cantaloupe, and eggs—their distinctive yellow and orange coloring. Lutein is an antioxidant that has been shown to improve eye health. 

    Specifically, lutein helps strengthen the part of the eye that often becomes damaged by blue light. Getting enough lutein in your diet may help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts from developing. 

    Prevent Anemia

    Anemia is a condition that stems from not having enough iron in your blood. This can limit your production of healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout your body. The main symptoms of anemia include fatigue and weakness.
