Pumpkin contains major benefits such as…

  • boosts vision and eye health
  • a good source of zinc
  • healthy heart
  • lowers blood pressure
  • regulates blood sugar
  • is a wonderful anti-oxidant
  • provides immunity
  • aids in sleep
  • anti-cancer benefits

Pumpkin also provides Vitamin C, potassium,  copper and 245% of your daily allowance of Vitamin A!

Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is abundant in vegetables and fruits. A water-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant, it helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels, and skin.

Potassium is an essential mineral. Like sodium, it binds readily with other minerals, and does not occur naturally in an unbound state. Potassium is required for the proper functioning of many major organ systems. (https://www.drweil.com/vitamins-supplements-herbs/supplements-remedies/we-all-need-potassium/)

Copper is an essential trace mineral, present in all body tissues, which plays a role in the formation of connective tissue, and in the normal functioning of muscles and the immune and nervous systems. (https://www.drweil.com/vitamins-supplements-herbs/supplements-remedies/copper/)

Vitamin A plays a vital role in bone growth, reproduction and immune system health. It also helps the skin and mucous membranes repel bacteria and viruses more effectively. It is essential to healthy vision, and may slow declining retinal function in people with retinitis pigmentosa.
