1. Anti-inflammatory Properties

Vitamins C and A not only serve the body as powerful antioxidants, but also as effective anti-inflammatory agents. Along with the copper found in zucchini, these vitamins deter the development of many hyper-inflammatory disorders, including asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

2. Prostate Health

Studies show that the phytonutrients in zucchini aid in reducing the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BOH), a condition in which the prostate gland enlarges and leads to complications with urination and sexual functions in men.

3. Folic Acid Source

Raw and grilled zucchini also benefit your health due to their folate, or vitamin B-9 content. Folate helps support your metabolism, aiding in protein and nucleic acid metabolism. Both proteins and nucleic acids facilitate cell growth and aid in tissue maintenance.

4. Lower Blood Pressure

Along with magnesium, the potassium found in zucchini helps lower blood pressure. If unchecked, hypertension, or high blood pressure, can lead to arteriosclerosis (blood vessel damage), heart attack, and many other serious medical conditions.

5. Low Calorie Food

Zucchini is incredibly low in calories. A healthy serving of this vegetable delivers less than 25 calories, an almost unheard of number in the general roster of calorie counts. That makes zucchini a great way to get full without loading up on calories and sinking a diet plan.
