Pumpkin Seeds - Miracle Food?

Always looking to do posts on simple natural foods that are packed with essential nutrients, tasty and just plain GOOD FOR YOU. Pumpkins Seeds seem to fit the bill for a post. Let's take a look:

  • One quarter cup of pumpkin seeds provide almost 50% of your daily recommended dose of MAGNESIUM
  • They are RICH in ZINC (immunity, cell growth and division, sleep, mood, sense of smell and taste, eye and skin health, insulin regulation and male sexual function)
  • Plant based Omega 3's (ALA - Alpha-linolenic acid)
  • Prostate Health (plays a role in treating benign prostactic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate)
  • Anti-Diabetic Effects - helps by improving insulin regulation and diabetic complications by decreasing oxidative stress
  • Heart and Liver Health - rich in healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants
  • Contain Trytophan - (an amino acid) that your body converts to serotonin which in turn is converted to Melatonin - the sleep hormone
  • Anti-Inflammatory - Remember INFLAMMATION is one of our biggest health problems

EAT YOUR PUMPKINS SEEDS RAW for best results - purchase from reputable outlets and make sure they are not musty, stale or spoiled.

… who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
— 1 Peter 2:24


Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food - Hippocrates
