Winter squash provide significant amounts of

  • potassium (important for bone health)
  • vitamin B6 (essential for the proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems)
  • folate (helps guard against brain and spinal-cord-related birth defects)
  • fiber (promotes a healthy gut and protects against colon cancer)
  • carotenoids (protect against cancer and heart disease)
  • very high levels of beta-carotene (which your body automatically converts to vitamin A)
