Properties and benefits of peppers

Did you know that just 50 grams of pepper provides you with all of your recommended daily vitamin C? Peppers are a natural vitamin complex, with high fibre and low fat. They are a source of vitamins and minerals and should be a staple in your diet.

Peppers as a source of fibre

Peppers have a high water content (94%) and low calorie and fat content, and can form part of a hypocaloric diet provided that you don’t add fats when you cook. Because they have high levels of fibre, eating peppers increases the feeling of fullness that helps to lose weight and prevents constipation.

Rich in vitamins and minerals

Retinol (vitamin A), thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), B6, C, K… These are all vitamins that peppers add to your diet. Let’s take a look at vitamin B6 and vitamin C: 100 grams of pepper provides 26% and 200% of your recommended daily intake respectively. And no, that second zero isn’t a mistake. Just 50 grams of pepper gives you all the vitamin C you need for your day-to-day…

Peppers contain calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and zinc, and will help you reach your recommended mineral intake. Being low in sodium, they are also recommended to people suffering from hypertension.

Other benefits of peppers

Peppers are rich in antioxidants and counter the effects of free radicals, combating the effects of aging. They are rich in folate, which is beneficial to both pregnant women and growing children. Being rich in potassium and low in sodium, they are diuretic and combat hypertension, kidney stones and fluid retention.

One of the benefits of peppers we sometimes forget is that their intense flavour reduces the need for salt in meals, which is great news for people with cardiovascular illnesses, kidney disease or hypertensive heart disease.
