//ORANGE PEPPERS// One orange pepper contains 190 percent of the daily recommended intake for vitamin C, which is 75 milligrams for women and 90 milligrams for men. Vitamin C is a nutrient that supports healthy immunity and protects you from diseases. It also works to produce collagen, keeping your skin healthy and helps wounds heal. Eating vitamin C-rich foods makes it easier for your body to absorb the iron in your meals. For this reason, pairing orange bell peppers with fish or chicken is a good way to increase your iron stores, especially important for women who lose iron each month during menstruation.
