Red peppers are called a superfood for a reason. They contain 300% of your required vitamin c intake (twice that of green peppers) which is not only a powerful antioxidant but also helps with the absorption of iron.

They are also a great source of vitamin B6 which is a natural diuretic to prevent bloating and helps to break down and digest proteins, and form red blood cells. You can find more interesting facts about Red Peppers, and a new recipe, in the first part of this 3 part series of Red Pepper’s recipes.
