Red Bell Peppers: Always at the top of the dance card, and for good reason! Red bell peppers are a rich source of Vitamin C and the carotenoid, Lycopene. Studies have shown that women with the highest levels of carotenoids in their blood have the lowest risk for breast cancer. Bell peppers are chock full of other antioxidants like vitamins A, K, folic acid and B6 that absorb cancer causing free radicals. We’re always aiming to fight those free radicals!
Who doesn’t love strawberries? They’re a sweet and scrumptious symbol of summer, but strawberries are not just a pretty face. They are high in ellagic acid, a phytochemical, shown to have anti-cancer properties such as preventing cancer cell growth. They’re also high in antioxidants, which fight free radicals and prevent them from damaging our cells. Their high content of Vitamin C boosts the immune system – a strong immune system is your best defense against cancer.
