Health Benefits of Pumpkins

Did you know national pumpkin day is October 26th? There are literally hundreds of pumpkin varieties grown worldwide, but the variety we usually bake with is called sugar pumpkin or pie pumpkin. Here are some of the health benefits of pumpkins:

  • Support eye health and sharpen your vision due to high concentration of vitamin A
  • Keep you feeling full for longer and keep your digestive tract happy due to fibre content
  • Boost the immune system so you can avoid cold and flu season due to high amounts of vitamin C
  • Helps you sleep like a baby because of the phytonutrient tryptophan
