Peppers or capsicums are just outright good for your health. They have very few calories but are packed with nutrients and come in many varied colours. The red capsicums, yellow capsicums and carrots in this juice are rich in beta carotene. The consumption of this powerful nutrient reduces your risk of some types of cancers including breast, stomach and intestinal cancers. Lycopene found in red capsicum is a carotenoid whose consumption has also been linked to lower rates of breast cancer, prostate cancer and cancers of the cervix, bladder and pancreas.
Capsicums are also high in Vitamin C, a red capsicum triples that of a orange.
