In an article, Sutlana Foss, a nutritionist in Russia, described pumpkin as the most important food for preventing heart disease and strengthening eyesight.
“Pumpkin is one of the healthiest vegetables whose biologically active ingredients help eliminate bad cholesterol, improve water-salt balance and smooth heart function,” he said. It can also have a beneficial effect on the quality of vision and prevent the growth of cancer cells.
Svetlana Foss said: “Yellow, orange pumpkin is equivalent to vegetables such as carrots, because this summer has a high content of beta-carotene, so it can be said that this type of vegetable converts beta-carotene in the human body to vitamin A.”
Pumpkin not only controls the growth and development of the body but can also maintain eye vision at the proper level.
“Pumpkin has a natural antioxidant that protects the body against aggressive environmental influences, but the most important property of this type of vegetable is the process of suppressing the conversion of cells into malignant cells,” said Svetlana Foss.
I have to say; This summer contains a lot of iron and zinc salts, copper and phosphorus, as well as pectin substances that improve intestinal function in case of constipation.
