Pumpkin doesn’t just make a delicious pie, it also packs an abundance of beneficial nutrients, including fiber, potassium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and vitamins C and E. It contains the richest supplies of bioavailable carotenoids, which have been shown to decrease the risk for certain types of cancers and cardiovascular disease.

The carotenoids found in pumpkin have very powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a good choice for those suffering from joint pain. In fact, just a half-cup serving of pumpkin provides you 100% of the recommended daily dietary intake of alpha-carotene and beta-carotene.
