One thing is for sure, and that's pumpkins aren’t just for carving or pumpkin spice lattes. This seasonal fruit offers plenty of health-boosting properties. Pumpkin is also a great ingredient for soup recipes, muffins or even pancake recipes. Eating more pumpkin will benefit you in several ways. Pumpkin offers health-boosting antioxidants. Pumpkins are also packed with carotenoids, which help to protect your cells against free radical damage. Like carrots, pumpkins are rich in beta-carotene, along with alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin. After consuming beta-carotene, your body then converts it into vitamin A, all the while boosting overall immune function. Consuming pumpkin helps to protect your eyes. Because pumpkin is rich in beta-carotene, you benefit from a safe source of vitamin A. In fact, when you consume only one cup of pumpkin, you can benefit from nearly twice the recommended daily intake. This important vitamin also helps to promote optimal vision health, because it reduces your risk of degenerative eye conditions, while also helping to promote healthy teeth and bones. Consuming pumpkin also helps to boost your fiber intake. Fiber is critical when it comes to optimal health, as it supports regular bowel movements, blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Fiber also supports a healthy digestive system, and it may also help with controlling your weight. This is because when you eat a diet that is fiber-rich, you will also curb hunger and avoid overeating.
