Al-Marsad Newspaper – Agencies: The gastroenterologist, Doctor Ekaterina Kachokh, revealed the amazing benefits of eating unripe zucchini (squash) in food.
Easy to digest
According to Gazeta.Ru, the doctor says that zucchini is a safe food item because it is easy to digest and absorb and rarely causes allergic reactions. So you can start feeding babies mashed zucchini.
She added, “Zucchini is often included in the diet of patients during their recovery from their illness, and for the elderly and schoolchildren. Those who care about their fitness should not ignore zucchini, because 100 grams of it contain only 24 calories.”
In addition, water constitutes 90 percent of the composition of zucchini, which helps maintain the water balance in the body.
High in fiber
She says, “Zucchini contains a high percentage of dietary fiber that is beneficial for the digestive system and gives a feeling of satiety. It also contains pectin – a water-soluble dietary fiber that helps maintain the level of cholesterol in the blood.”
Good amount of vitamins
Zucchini also contains a good proportion of vitamins A, C and PP and antioxidants – lutein and zeaxanthin that help maintain visual acuity. Zucchini is rich in potassium, which helps remove excess fluid from the body and improve salt metabolism.
And she continued: “It is recommended to use unripe zucchini in food, because it has a pleasant taste and does not contain large, hard seeds. It is also easy to digest and can be eaten boiled, grilled or even fried for dinner. However, we must know that the long heat treatment loses all the vitamins in zucchini.” “.
