But they’re actually a remarkably good source of nutrients. Interestingly, red peppers are between two and nine times more nutritious than green peppers. One whole red pepper contains 317 percent of your daily value of vitamin C. One red pepper also contains almost 100 percent the recommended daily value of vitamin A. Red peppers also contain a whole arsenal of antioxidants. Antioxidants may help to reduce the risk of cancer. Additionally, red peppers are a significant source of manganese, riboflavin, folate, niacin, thiamin, and potassium. Anti-inflammatory properties make red pepper juice a particularly positive choice for those suffering from arthritis.This juice combines the sweetness of carrots and red pepper with the peppery flavor of arugula. It’ll open up your sinus passages, put a smile on your face and deposit nutrients in your tummy. Enjoy! 

Ingredients

  • 2 red peppers
  • ½ pound of carrots
  • 1 handful of arugula

Directions

  • Wash all veggies. Cut the core and stem out of the pepper – if your juicer is fairly robust, don’t worry too much about removing the seeds.

  • Enjoy!
