Zucchini is higher in potassium than a banana. Potassium is said to help your heart to beat, as well as help other muscles work properly. The potassium in zucchini also helps moderate your blood pressure levels and counters the bad effects one might get from too much sodium.
Most of the fibre and antioxidants are found in the skin so make sure to eat this part as well.
Zucchini is great for people with diabetes as it is high in B-complex vitamins, folate, B6, B1, B2, B3, choline, as well as minerals like zinc and magnesium.
