    Pumpkins help diabetes as chemicals found in pumpkin could potentially replace or at least drastically decrease the daily insulin injections of diabetics.

    The beneficial effect of pumpkin is down to antioxidants and D-chiro-inositol, a chemical involved in the insulin activity. As the insulin amounts grow, they favour the lowering of blood glucose levels, which lowers levels of oxidative radicals that cause harm to beta-cell membranes, impeding further damage and allowing for some cell generation.
