Stir-Fry Chicken With Aloe & Bell Pepper

Aloe Vera contains naturally occurring antioxidants in the form of vitamins B complex, C and E, plus beta-carotene which is converted by the body into vitamin A.

Dietary nutrients in Aloe Vera also include potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, chromium and sodium and all are essential for maintaining a healthy metabolism.

Bell pepper is rich in Vitamins A and C so do not over cooked as to maintain its crispy texture. It helps whiten your skin while achieving a pinkish tint, a natural sheen and resilience.
