Benefits.

Pumpkin has a range of fantastic benefits, including being one of the best-known sources of beta carotene. Just like their orange cousins, the carrot and the sweet potato. Beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that gives orange vegetables and fruits their vibrant color. The body converts any ingested beta carotene into vitamin A. This helps your heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs stay healthy. 

Consuming foods with high volumes of beta carotene may have the following benefits of reducing the risk of developing certain types of cancer, offering protection against asthma and heart disease, decreasing the risk of age-related macular degeneration
