It’s that time of the year again. Pumpkin season!
Did you know pumpkin offers many health benefits?
Pumpkin is packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including Beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, and dietary fiber.
Beta-carotene in pumpkin is a powerful antioxidant, which can help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. This may reduce the risk of chronic diseases and support overall health.
Beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A in our body. It helps maintain healthy vision and supports the immune system.
Pumpkin is low in calories but high in fiber content. Foods rich in fiber can help you feel fuller longer, which can aid in weight management by reducing overall calorie intake. It can also aid in digestion and promote a healthy gut.
The vitamins in pumpkin, especially vitamin C and vitamin E, promote healthy skin by supporting collagen production and protecting the skin from UV damage.
