Pumpkins are packed with carotenoids, helping to protect your cells against free radical damage. Like carrots, this orange fruit is rich in beta-carotene, as well as alpha-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin.
After consuming beta-carotene, for instance, your body converts it into vitamin A, all while boosting overall immune function.
