Pumpkin – Vitamin A, Fiber, and more!

by Nutrition


From pie to scary Halloween jack o’lanterns, pumpkins are a staple this time of year. Adding it into your family meals can bring some great health benefits. The bright orange color of a pumpkin is an indication that it is full of Vitamin A, beta-carotene, and other carotenoids. These micronutrients are powerful antioxidants that can improve eye health, skin texture, and have cancer fighting properties. They are also full of dietary fiber that can help you feel full longer, and help curb cravings during the holiday season. Pumpkin is a high source of potassium, making it a great post-workout food. It is also a low allergen food that most people can tolerate well.

Don’t forget the benefits of the seeds, either. One serving of seeds provides essential nutrients like fatty acids, manganese, tryptophan, zinc, and vitamin E. Research indicates that pumpkin seeds may protect against heart disease, osteoporosis, bladder dysfunction, anxiety, and arthritis. This holiday season, try adding in a pumpkin puree soup, pumpkin bread, a handful of pumpkin seeds or a healthy version of pumpkin pie.
