5 ways bell pepper can benefit people with diabetes

Lowers cholesterol levels

Bell peppers or capsicums are rich in antioxidants, iron and phytosterols (natural compounds found in plants), which help lower high cholesterol levels.

Prevents blood sugar spikes

Bell peppers have a low glycemic index. They are digested slowly and raise blood sugar levels in a gradual manner.

Provides satiety 

Dietary fiber in bell peppers keeps you full and aids in weight management by minimizing the chances of intermittent snacking.

Prevents inflammation

Capsicums are rich in carotenoids and flavonoids. They help protect cells from oxidative stress and inflammation that can cause diabetic complications.

Improves immunity

Vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium present in bell peppers maintain overall health and improve immunity.
