Benefits of zucchini

Suitable for any type of diet

Since water is its main component, followed by carbohydrates and a small amount of fat and protein, it is an ingredient with low levels of calories that makes it ideal for any kind of diet, especially for those interested in losing weight. To the above must be added the satiating effect it produces, due to its high fiber content.

Helps us to eliminate liquids

It has a diuretic effect as it is a food rich in potassium. It causes an increase in urine production, which stimulates the elimination of other fluids that may be retained in the body, such as uric acid. This makes it especially beneficial for people suffering from hypertension, and hyperuricemia or gout.

Promotes digestion and bowel regulation

Zucchini is ideal for people with heavy digestions. This is due to mucilages, a type of soluble fiber that takes care of the intestinal mucosa. It is ideal for regulating intestinal transit, and to prevent and improve constipation problems due to its slight laxative effect.

Absorbs fats and sugars

Another significant benefit is that it helps the absorption of fats and sugars, which it does thanks to its significant fiber content, a component that regulates the presence of these ingredients in the intestine. To do so, it creates a kind of gel that "traps" nutrients and expels them, preventing them from being absorbed. It is also a highly recommended food to take care of the heart.
