3 Reasons To Eat Pumpkin
1 It can help with weight loss. Pumpkins contain plenty of fibre, which helps you feel fuller for longer, so you’ll be less tempted to snack between meals.
2 It’s great for your eyesight, thanks to the vitamin A, lutein and zeaxanthin it contains. ‘These antioxidants help prevent cataracts, and possibly slow macular degeneration,’ says Dr Seth Rankin, founder of the London Doctors Clinic.
3 You’ll look younger – yes, really! The beta-carotene in pumpkins protects skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
