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.
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.
