GO PUMPKIN PICKING!
Pumpkin is a great immune-system booster since it is rich in betacarotene, which helps fight against oxygen cells called free radicals that damage healthy cells. Although you may not think of it this way, skin is actually the largest organ in your body and plays a critical role in the immune system. Keeping skin healthy with regular doses of beta-carotene can go a long way in boosting overall health. To increase your intake, add mashed pumpkin as a side dish to meals, cook up a warm and comforting pumpkin soup, or add puréed pumpkin to your favorite pancake recipe for a delicious breakfast treat.
