Yellow squash is abundant in antioxidants that keep free radicals at bay. With its high beta-carotene content, yellow squash is a great source of protection from pollutants and chemicals that lead to cancer. It is also high in vitamin C, which helps prevent premature aging and cancer as well as inhibiting cell division. This high fiber content also provides the additional benefit of cholesterol lowering activity which can lower the risks for heart attack and stroke. Summer squash is also a good source of magnesium, copper, and folic acid. The magnesium may be useful in preventing cholesterol build-up in the arteries of the heart while the potassium may aid in lowering blood pressure-another mechanism by which it can protect against cardiovascular disease. Summer squash is an excellent diet food due to its 95 percent water composition and low calorie content (only 20 calories per cup).
