Pumpkin!  It’s good for you!

Pumpkins are a Halloween staple…but they are good for more than jack-O-Lanterns.

*  Pumpkins are packed with fiber, which aids in digestion.
*  Pumpkins are full of minerals, including magnesium, zinc, iron and potassium, which helps prevent your muscles from cramming after working out.
*  Pumpkins make you smile.  They contain tryptophan, which helps your body produce serotonin, a natural  mood-booster.
*  Pumpkins seeds are a nutritional powerhouse.    Pumpkin seeds lower your bad cholesterol.
*  Pumpkin have anti-inflammatory properties, which means they reduce your risk of disease and cancer.

Feeling KOOL is brought to you by Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
