Pepper to protect your body
Peppers are vegetables with high water content and low caloric and fat intake; therefore, they can be included in our healthy diet.

Moreover, this vitamin is essential for the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin and vision.
Another vitamin that can be found in peppers is vitamin B6. This vitamin has been related to cardiovascular disease prevention, nausea and the production of antibodies, which are essential to be in good health and deal with any external agent. It also helps us break down protein and keep our blood sugar levels within healthy limits.
Vitamin C, present in many fruits and vegetables, is also essential for our body, and peppers are high in this vitamin. But why is Vitamin C so important? It helps with the proper functioning of the nervous and immune system, while reducing tiredness and fatigue.
