Pumpkin pie. A part of any traditional Thanksgiving feast. It's the perfect finishing touch to a hearty meal. And the best part about it is the pumpkin that makes up that pie has many health benefits. So when you're having that second piece of pie you can use the excuse that it's good for you, for the following reasons:

  • Pumpkin contains magnesium and potassium which help to convert blood sugar into usable fuel. In fact, according to Swedish researchers, a daily dose of pumpkin can double your energy levels in as little as 7 days.
  • Pumpkin provides Vitamin A, a nutrient that helps the production of T cells which fights infection, lessening your chances of getting sick this winter.
  • According to British researchers, pumpkin's beta-cryptoxanthin helps relieve the inflammation of arthritis and promotes healing of damaged tissues.
  • The Vitamin A, along with Vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids that pumpkin contains are great for the skin.
After you've recovered from the busyness of your Thanksgiving festivities, sit back and relax with this pumpkin face mask and continue to reap the benefits of pumpkin:
