Butternut Squash

Tired of eating potatoes all the time? If you want an alternative that's jam packed with health benefits, look no further than to butternut squash.  This food can be eaten in a number of different ways and will help to take your health to a whole new level.

Let's look at some of the top health benefits that butternut squash will provide.

Promotes Heart Health With Fiber

Compared to other carb sources such as pasta or white rice, butternut squash is far higher in dietary fiber, which will work in the body to help bring down your total cholesterol levels.  Getting enough fiber on a regular basis is essential to maintain a healthy digestive system so by adding this at your dinner meal you'll quickly accomplish this goal.

Improves Nerve Functioning

Another big benefit that butternut squash provides is that since it is a rich source of vitamin B6, it'll help keep your central nervous system functioning optimally.
Those who are very low in vitamin B6 may run into serious health issues since the nervous system is involved in everything that you do, so you won't want to let yourself fall low in this nutrient.

Protects Against Heart Disease

Another benefit to your heart health, butternut squash is very rich in carotenoids, which will help to protect against heart disease.  When you combine this with the cholesterol lowering ability of dietary fiber you really have a powerful combination that can't be beat.

Reduces Inflammation

Finally, due to the antioxidant combinations that butternut squash provides, it also will work to reduce the overall inflammation level in the body.  Anyone who is suffering from arthritis related conditions will reap big benefits from including squash in their diet regularly.

So don't pass up butternut squash again for potatoes or some other side dish.  Start making an effort to eat this more regularly as part of your weekly diet.
