When the levels of the blood components – cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar – are too high, they lead to dietary habits that can be difficult to rebalance. Consequently, strokes, heart attacks or other diseases can appear. As a main solution, the specialists recommend opting for medication and predispositions because in this way the blood component levels are kept under control.
Believe it or not, a healthy lifestyle can also improve your condition and keep your system in balance. Think about consuming pumpkin, a very common but very powerful ingredient, with regularity. It has the ability to reduce the levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar.
All this happens because pumpkin is rich in fiber, minerals, seeds and vitamin A, nutrients that regulate the blood composition. The best way to consume this vegetable is a smoothie. It’s very easy to prepare.
Blend ½ cup of cubed pumpkin, ¾ cup of vanilla yogurt, 1/8 tsp of nutmeg, 2 tsp of brown sugar, 4 ice cubes and ¼ tsp of cinnamon for 2 minutes and when the resulting composition is creamy enough you will know it is ready. Enjoy!
