Question of the Day: Do bell peppers lower cholesterol?
Quick Answer: Yes, eating bell peppers can help lower your cholesterol.
Bell peppers are high in dietary fiber, which doctors have found to help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. They also contain significant amounts of quercetin and luteolin. These antioxidants inhibit the oxidation of LDL and help prevent it from bonding to your artery walls.
