Pumpkin Improves Eyesight!
We’ve all heard carrots improve your eyesight, but did you know the same could be said about pumpkins?
A cup of cooked pumpkin contains more than 200% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A and nearly 20% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C! Both vitamins are great for your eyesight! Vitamin A is known to aid in vision and can help improve vision in dim light. It’s essential in protecting the cornea and surface of the eye. Vitamin C reduces your risk of cataracts and other degenerative eye diseases.
So, pick up a pumpkin on your next trip to the grocery store and try out a new recipe!
