Pumpkins are rich in potassium, fiber and the carotenoid beta-carotene and have so much more to offer than being a popular seasonal decoration. Although technically a fruit, pumpkins often get placed in the vegetable category due to a more savory taste. Adding pumpkin to your diet is a great way to get prebiotic fiber that can help support a healthy gut microbiome by helping beneficial gut bacteria grow! The potassium content of pumpkin helps support the muscular system as well as keeping electrolytes and blood pressure in a healthy range.
Pumpkins get their beautiful orange color from the antioxidant, beta carotene, which is converted to vitamin A on an as needed basis in the human body. Vitamin A plays an integral role in immune health and warding off germs. Pumpkins also have vitamin C, vitamin E, and folate – all of which also play a role in immune health.
