Question: Does pepper have nutritional value or benefit to the body?
Of course, it does! Peppers have amazing nutritional value!
I have heard my friends and my aunt say that pepper doesn’t add anything to the body; and that its only function is to improve the taste of the food!
But, it is not true! Peppers are one of the richest sources of vitamins (especially vitamin A & vitamin C). They also contain phyto-chemicals & minerals which your body really, really needs!
It is also important to note that they are very low in calories, hence great for achieving weight. It is described to contain “capsaicin [which] has been shown to boost metabolism as well as suppress appetite, at least slightly. Over time, this effect might give you an extra edge when it comes to weight loss. But it won’t melt the pounds away.”
And, don’t forget that they are grouped among vegetables; and we all know how important vegetables & fruits are important to the body. They are the best foods given to us.
Eat peppers regularly. (And, again, it is NOT the CAUSE of ulcer; it only might WORSEN an ulcer!) Add to your desired pepperiness! And enjoy the color (green, orange, yellow, red, etc) and spicy taste and amazing health benefits!
It is good and healthy! It is very safe and beneficial to your body & mind!
