The Chinese have always believed that pumpkin aids in improving blood sugar level and cholesterol.
Having no saturated fat and cholesterol and with very low calories, the pumpkin is ideal for regular consumption. Researches in recent years have shown that the pumpkin does have the potential of aiding in insulin production in the blood.
