Antioxidants contribute to slowing the aging process, keeping us younger, fresher and looking our best, and counteract the effects of free radicals from our environment, food, and daily stresses.
- Pumpkin has been shown to exert a real protective effect against many cancers, heart disease and particularly type-2 diabetes.
