Bell pepper is a great source of vitamins A and C. The vitamin C content in bell peppers is comparable to that of lemons. Vitamin B complex, D and P are also rich, so are dietary fiber, iron and calcium. They stimulate body's metabolism and detoxification.

In the meantime, dietary fiber and silicon elements in bell pepper can help purification of the body, and stimulate growth of nails and hair. Bell pepper also helps bowel movements and thus naturally relieves constipation, bloated and gassy feeling and pain in abdominal part. It is great to diabetes and vision, too.
For maximum nutritional benefits, we recommend that you select ones with thick skin and dark color, and put them in cold salad or eat raw with light calorie dressings. However, in order to increase vitamin A intake, we recommend that you cook them with oil since beta-carotene in vitamin A can be best absorbed into our body when consumed with oil. If you choose to make juice, carrot, apple, lemon and tomatoes would add great flavors to it.
