    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.

    Nutrition

    Red peppers are a rich source of several vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant compounds. Interestingly, red bell pepper is also the only Capsicum variety that contains little to no capsaicin—the compound responsible for spiciness.

    Red peppers also contain:

    Health Benefits

    Technically a fruit, red peppers are more common as a staple in the vegetable produce section. They're also an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Each half cup of raw red pepper provides you with 47 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A and 159 percent of your vitamin C.

    Some of the other health benefits of red peppers include:


    Immune System Support

    Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights cell damage, boosts immune system response to microbes, and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Red peppers are rich in vitamin c, though roasting them reduces their vitamin C content by up to 25 percent. 

    Improve Eye and Skin Health

    The vitamin A and beta-carotene in red peppers offers good support for your overall vision and eye health. Vitamin A is also helpful in supporting skin cells, healing wounds, and boosting white blood cell growth.
