"Zucchini may also contribute to heart health.

Its high fiber content may be largely responsible. Observational studies show that people who eat more fiber have a lower risk of heart disease (17 Trusted Source18 Trusted Source).

Pectin, one type of soluble fiber found in zucchini, appears particularly effective at reducing total and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels (19 Trusted Source20 Trusted Source).

In a review of 67 studies, consuming as little as 2–10 grams of soluble fiber per day for around 1–2 months reduced, on average, total cholesterol by 1.7 mg/dl and “bad” LDL cholesterol by 2.2 mg/dl (18 Trusted Source).

Zucchini is also rich in potassium, which may help reduce high blood pressure by dilating your blood vessels. Healthier blood pressure is linked to a lower risk of heart disease and stroke (21 Trusted Source22 Trusted Source23 Trusted Source24 Trusted Source25 Trusted Source).

Moreover, diets rich in carotenoids — likewise found in zucchini — appear particularly protective against heart disease (26 Trusted Source)."
