Benefits of Zucchinis
These are characterized by thick warty skin with markedly curved necks. They have a crunchy texture and a sweet delicate flavour. Furthermore, zucchinis, especially golden skin varieties, are rich in flavonoid poly phenolic antioxidants such as carotenes, lutein and zea xanthin. These compounds help scavenge harmful oxygen derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) from the body that play a role in aging and various disease processes.
