Super Food September: Zucchini
The food ranking systems in zucchini-rich countries have declared that this squash has abundant levels of manganese and vitamin C that help to keep the heart strong. During the research, most of these nutrients were found effective in the prevention of diabetic heart disease and atherosclerosis. The magnesium content notably reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes. In combination with potassium, magnesium also helps in reducing high blood pressure. The beta-carotene and vitamin C found in summer squash help in preventing the oxidation of cholesterol. Oxidized cholesterol builds up on blood vessel walls, but these nutrients reduce the development of atherosclerosis. The vitamin folate is required by the body to eliminate an unsafe metabolic byproduct called homocysteine, which can result in heart attack and stroke if the levels rise too high.

Its fiber content lowers high cholesterol levels as well, thereby helping to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis and heart diseases due to diabetes. Already being an outstanding source of manganese and vitamin C, zucchini is also the best source of dietary fiber that will keep your body in the best shape for the long run. It also contains vitamin A, magnesium, folate, potassium, copper, and phosphorus that help in boosting health. This summer squash also has a high content of omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, niacin, and protein.
