The nutritional value of pumpkin

Nutritional value

1, The pumpkin contains protein, and the content of immunologically active protein is relatively high, because the genotype of ascorbate oxidase in pumpkin is the same as that of tobacco, but the activity is higher than that of tobacco, so the content of immunologically active protein in pumpkin is relatively high.

2, The pumpkin contains a variety of amino acids required by the human body, and the content of threonine, leucine, lysine, phenylalanine and isoleucine is relatively high.

3, Pumpkin is rich in polysaccharides, pumpkin polysaccharide can enhance the body’s immunity, because pumpkin polysaccharide is a non-specific immune enhancer, can promote the production of cytokines, thus regulating the immune system.

4, Pumpkin is rich in carotene, and carotene can be converted into vitamin A in the human body, and vitamin A is a very important vitamin for the human body, can protect vision, promote the growth and differentiation of epithelial tissue, promote bone development.

5, Pumpkin contains vitamin C, and vitamin C has a strong oxidation, can remove free radicals in the human body, and can prevent nitrate from being converted into nitrite in the human body, and nitrite is a carcinogen.

6, Pumpkin is also rich in pectin. After entering the stomach, pectin can regulate the absorption rate of food in the stomach, reduce the absorption of sugar, and because the pumpkin is rich in dietary fiber, the dietary fiber will not be affected by the human body. Digestion and absorption, staying in the stomach for a long time, delaying the emptying of food in the stomach, can control the rise of blood sugar.

7, Pectin in the pumpkin will combine the excess cholesterol in the human body, thereby reducing the body’s absorption of cholesterol, thus reducing the blood cholesterol content, which is to lower blood lipids.

8, Pumpkin is rich in trace elements, especially cobalt, is the highest cobalt content in all vegetables, and cobalt can promote the body’s metabolism, or the minerals needed by islet cells, can promote hematopoietic function, promote vitamin B12 Synthesis.

Edible efficacy

1, Detoxification: Contains vitamins and pectin. Pectin has good adsorption. It can bind and eliminate bacterial toxins and other harmful substances in the body, such as lead, mercury and radioactive elements in heavy metals, which can detoxify.

2, Protect the gastric mucosa, help digestion: the pectin contained in the pumpkin can also protect the gastric mucosa mucosa, from the stimulation of rough foods, promote ulcer healing, suitable for patients with stomach diseases. The ingredients contained in the pumpkin can promote bile secretion, strengthen gastrointestinal motility, and help digestion of food.

3, Prevention and treatment of diabetes, lowering blood sugar: pumpkin is rich in cobalt, cobalt can activate the body’s metabolism, promote hematopoietic function, and participate in the synthesis of vitamin B12 in the human body, is a necessary trace element in human islet cells, to prevent and treat diabetes, lower blood sugar Has a special effect.

4, Eliminate carcinogens: pumpkin can eliminate the mutation of carcinogenic nitrosamines, have anti-cancer effect, and can help the recovery of liver and kidney function, enhance the regeneration capacity of liver and kidney cells.

5, Promote growth and development: pumpkin is rich in zinc, involved in the body’s synthesis of nucleic acids, proteins, is an intrinsic component of adrenal cortex hormones, an important substance for human growth and development.

For people
