Red peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C, contain high antioxidant levels and are linked to a reduced risk of heart disease.

Beta-cryptoxanthin, vitamin E and other carotenoids are best absorbed by the body when they are eaten with oil, so they are best eaten as part of a meal.

Red peppers are the sweeter and riper versions of green peppers. They can be eaten in many different ways and because they are low in calories, can be eaten freely.
