What good are Pumpkins?

Pumpkins are very rich in several vitamins and minerals that our bodies require. One cup of pumpkin has 49 calories and less than a gram of fat, which makes them a great low-calorie food to include in your diet. They are packed with copper, vitamin C, manganese, and potassium, and are exceptionally high in vitamin A.

The vitamin A present in pumpkins help to protect our eyesight while the high amounts of carotenoids present in them fight free radicals that cause oxidative damage. The antioxidants that are present in pumpkins help to reduce the number of free radicals that are produced by cancer cells, which damages your cells, proteins, and DNA and ultimately increases your risk of heart disease and cancer.
