German term or phrase: a question
Der hohe Gehalt an den Zellschutzstoffen (Antioxidantien) Vitamin C und E sowie Carotin macht sowohl Kuerbisse als auch Kuerbisgewaechse zu Schutzpatronen, die die Gefahr fuer Herzinfarkt verringern.

1. Does Zellschutzstoffen mean Vitamin C and E? Or They are separate three agents?
2. Kuerbisgewaechse is the whole plant? Mean you can use any part of the plant to prevent heart infarct?

Thanks for your help!!

English translation:Zellschutzstoffe refers to
Explanation:
Vitamin C, E and carotene

I think Kuerbisgewaechse refers to any plant in the pumpkin family, but to the fruit (vegetable?) itself, not the leaves, for instance.
