Did you know pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse? That’s right, pumpkins are high in fiber and low in calories. That means they make you feel full without adding to your overall food intake for the day. If you’re looking for a healthy way to fill up, nutrient-rich pumpkin is a good go-to choice. The fiber uptick in your diet promotes digestive health. They contain potassium which is crucial for lowering blood pressure. Studies show that higher potassium levels can lower your risk of stroke, kidney stones, and type 2 diabetes.
Another bonus: Potassium may also increase bone mineral density, boosting your bone health and are packed with Vitamin A-which also helps your heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs stay healthy. Pumpkins offer vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, and folate –all of which strengthen your immune system. More pumpkin in your diet can help your immune cells work better to ward off germ, and speed healing when you get a wound.
