11. Red or yellow bell peppers
Just like sweet potatoes, red or yellow bell peppers are great sources of beta carotene, the compound that’s converted by your body into vitamin A. Approximately 150 grams of chopped red bell pepper packs the equivalent of 156 percent of the Daily Value for vitamin A.
Bell peppers are also high in vitamin C. This vitamin is essential in creating collagen, the protein that keeps our skin firm and youthful. Around 150 grams of chopped red bell pepper contains 211 percent of the Daily Value for vitamin C.
Both red and yellow bell peppers can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, so try to add them to your diet as often as you can.
Bonus: They can also improve bone’s health, boost the immune system, prevent macular degeneration, reduce inflammation, enhance muscle function, and fight free radicals.
