EAT RED PEP­PERS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - CELEBRITY WELLBEING -

1RED pep­pers con­tain vi­ta­min C, a pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant es­sen­tial for the ab­sorp­tion of iron. 2THEY are a great source of vi­ta­min B6 and folic acid which can help pre­vent anaemia. 3RED pep­pers are high in vi­ta­min A, which is needed for healthy eyes. 4THEY are full of ly­copene, the chem­i­cal com­pound that makes them red, which helps lower the risk of pan­cre­atic, cer­vi­cal and prostate can­cer. 5RED pep­pers also con­tain es­sen­tial min­er­als such as iron, cop­per, zinc, potas­sium, man­ganese, mag­ne­sium, and se­le­nium.
