Pumpkin is an excellent source of bone building nutrients
Recipe for building better bones by Dr. Claudia Tamas



Pumpkin has numerous health benefits! Pumpkin is an excellent source of magnesium and zinc, both of which play an important role in building bone density. It is also packed with vitamins and minerals to help boost your immune system. It contains fiber, potassium, and vitamin C which helps support heart health.  It is also a good source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that gives orange vegetables their color, which can help reduce your risk of chronic disease.
