Ginger has medicinal properties

Okay, ginger is not exactly what we think of when we talk about vegetables, but this root deserves a place of prominence for its benefits. After all, the food has medicinal properties so strong that it is even recommended by the WHO, the World Health Organization. In addition to being excellent for digestion, it also helps to relieve pain, is indicated against nausea in general and is still very effective against colds.

Pumpkin is rich in vitamins and minerals

There is no denying that pumpkin is an extremely versatile ingredient. Rich in vitamins A, C, E and the B complex and minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and zinc, it helps in the proper functioning of the body in general. Among its greatest benefits is making the immune system more resistant, improving mood and improving intestinal transit.

Zucchini helps in cancer prevention

The name may be similar, but pumpkin and zucchini are two different vegetables – although they share many benefits. Zucchini, for example, is a source of vitamins A and C, which makes it a powerful antioxidant. This means that it fights free radicals and consequently helps to prevent the appearance of several types of diseases, such as cancer. It is also worth noting that the vegetable is good for healing, for the heart and for prostate health.

Carrot reduces bad cholesterol levels

Carrots are often remembered for their strong presence of vitamin A, which improves the vision and vitality of hair and skin. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory properties, which are due to the presence of vitamin C. It is also rich in dietary fiber, which prevents binge eating and regulates the intestine, and also reduces the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL).

Curry is a mixture of several ingredients, so it has many benefits

Finally, we have curry, which, although of Indian origin, has been increasingly successful in Brazil. It is nothing more than a mixture of different ingredients, such as ginger, turmeric and cinnamon. Therefore, its benefits are added, ranging from relieving joint pain to controlling cholesterol and being a great anticoagulant.
