Pumpkin health benefits

What is pumpkin?

Pumpkins are huge, spherical and orange with a slightly tough but smooth outer skin.

Helps improve vision

Being good sources of Vitamin C, E and beta carotene, pumpkins support eye health and reduce the occurrence of age-related eye disorders. 

Helps maintain a healthy weight 

Pumpkin’s high fibre content promotes satiety, which can reduce cravings and, in turn helps to consume fewer calories. 

Prevents premature ageing

The beta-carotene in pumpkin offers protection from the UV rays that cause skin issues. They also promote the formation of collagen, which keeps skin supple and young-looking.  


Pumpkin is a good source of fibre, which decreases blood cholesterol and potassium which helps control blood pressure. 

Boosts immunity

Vitamin A is crucial in boosting immune system health. The immune system is also helped by vitamin C, which stimulates white blood cell production and supports immune cell activity.
