High Carotenoids Content: Pumpkins owe their bright orange color to the high amount of carotenoids present in them. Carotenoids assist in staving off the& free radicals in the body, and help in preventing premature aging, cardiovascular diseases and other infections. They are also high in Lutein & Zeaxanthin which protect the eyes against free radical damage and prevent formation of cataracts and degeneration of the eye tissues.
