Health Benefits of Pumpkin:
Eating pumpkin is good for the heart. The fiber, potassium and vitamin C content in pumpkin all support heart health.
Including pumpkin in the diet may help people control diabetes and their blood sugar levels.
Pumpkins contain a wealth of antioxidants. Vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene support eye health and prevent degenerative damage in older adults.
Health Benefits of Apple:
Apples can do a lot for you, thanks to plant chemicals called flavonoids. And they have pectin, a fiber that breaks down in your gut. If you take off the apple’s skin before eating it, you won’t get as much of the fiber or flavonoids.
The fiber can slow digestion so you feel fuller after eating. This can keep you from overeating. Eating fiber-rich foods helps control symptoms and lessens the effects of acid reflux. An apple’s fiber can also help with diarheea and constipation.
