It also contains carotenoids which fight free radicals and help prevent premature ageing, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. Pumpkin also contains Vitamin A for healthy eyes, potassium to help reduce the risk of hypertension, and zinc for healthy bones and the immune system. *When following a detox program, it is important not to cook with oils for longer than one minute, however a small drizzle of organic extra virgin coconut oil at the end of cooking –as with this pumpkin soup – can actually support the detox process.
