The Health Boost Tip

Courgette (or zucchini as it's called in some parts of the world) is an excellent source of copper and manganese. The highest antioxidants are in the skin so it's worth leaving it on and preferably buying organic or growing your own to avoid unwanted contaminants. Courgette is available from May to September and, although you can purchase all year round, nutrients will be higher during these months.
