The Pleasures of Pumpkin
The remarkable benefits of PumpkinMore
Pumpkin is an excellent source of soluble fiber. That’s the good fiber!
The natural fiber content in pumpkin helps to slow down digestion.
With the correct ratio of pumpkin to other ingredients fiber fermentation produces beneficial fatty acids.
The fatty acids supply energy to cells, stimulate intestinal sodium and water absorption, and helps lower the pH level of the large intestines.
Pumpkin fiber also acts as a prebiotic. Different from probiotics they stimulate the growth or activity of beneficial bacteria in the intestines and inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
Pumpkin fiber does this by lowering the pH level and providing the necessary nutrients these bacteria need.
