Acorn squash is not just a great side to your meal; it is also packed with numerous health benefits! One serving contains around 145 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin A; it also has high levels of vitamin C, potassium, manganese, folic acid, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids. Acorn squash also contains phytonutrients, cancer-fighting properties, as well as an abundance of beta-carotene, which reduces free radicals in the body and reduces the possibility of lung cancer, colon cancer, and heart disease.
