Pumpkin plants have thick, hairy vines that can grow up to 25 feet in length with most often a bright orange round fruit - the pumpkin itself. Some varieties may be more oval in shape and green in color. The flesh, or pulp, of the pumpkin is dense and flavorful and very nutritious. As well as the flesh, the small seeds inside are a wonderful superfood seed.
As indicated by its rich orange color, Pumpkin contains high leverls of antioxidants like beta carotene and Vitamin A. Studies show that beta carotene may promote cardiovascular health and Vitamin A also promotes collagen production, promoting healthy skin. There is also evidence that suggests Vitamin A is also beneficial to ovary health. Research has also shown that in some individuals the intake of carotenoids may be helpful in glucose metabolism. Pumpkin is also a good source of Vitamin E, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Dietary Fiber. Pumpkin also contains several essential fatty acids and has been shown to possibly have some anti-inflammatory and blood sugar regulating capabilities.
