Pumpkin is high in potassium which keeps the nervous system working effectively.
The orange colour of pumpkin flesh is full of beta carotene which ensures smooth skin, good eyesight and a healthy immune system. This vitamin is a key antioxidant in protection against free radicals (highly reactive molecules which can cause brain and other tissue damage).
Pumpkins are beneficial for the treatment of gallbladder, kidney and prostate problems.
They are also excellent treatment for the removal of roundworm and tapeworm from the intestines.
