– Pumpkin is very rich in pro-Vitamin A.
– It also has a mild diuretic and laxative effect. Eat it raw (sliced and mixed with other raw vegetables) or cooked (steamed, added to soups, and of course delicious pumpkin pie!).
– Recommended for persons suffering from stomach or intestinal problems (colic, constipation), as well as kidney problems and rheumatism.
– Like carrots, pumpkin helps prevent cancer, and especially lung cancer – highly recommended for ex or passive smokers.
