Raw pumpkin seeds (also known as pepitas) are high in a variety of minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that are not commonly present in other foods. They can be eaten raw, shelled, or roasted and have a sweet, nutty flavour. You'll be keen to add some of these super-hero seeds into your diet once you've learned about some of their health benefits.
Half a cup of pumpkin seeds contains 100% of the RDA for magnesium, which aids in a variety of essential physiological functions including heart pumping, proper bone and tooth development, blood vessel relaxation, and bowel function.
Magnesium can also aid in the prevention of heart attacks and strokes by lowering blood pressure.
Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, which benefits the body in a variety of ways, including eye and skin health, sleep, mood, immunity, and insulin control. Increased colds and flu, chronic fatigue, depression, and acne are all symptoms of zinc deficiency.
Raw pumpkin seeds are a good source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that keeps muscle tissue safe and protects the lungs from toxins that cause heart disease. It also thins the blood and dilates blood vessels, lowering blood pressure and lowering the risk of blood clots.
Eating pumpkin seeds is a great way to get your B vitamins, such as thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid. Niacin helps in the reduction of "poor cholesterol" levels in the blood. Anaemia, exhaustion, depression, constipation, poor digestion, cardiac attacks, uncertainty, poor memory and concentration, poor skin, hair, and nails, erratic heartbeat, moodiness, loss of appetite, and anxiety are all symptoms of B vitamin deficiency.
Pumpkin seeds are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that your body converts to melatonin, also known as "sleep hormone." So eating a handful of pumpkin seeds a few hours before bed will help you get a good night's sleep.
High in fibre,pumpkin seeds can help in weight loss by helping you maintain your weight by making you feel fuller for longer. Aside from that, pumpkin seeds are good for your digestion.
They reduce the risk of cancer
Because of their amazing antioxidant properties, pumpkin seeds can be thought to be beneficial for cancer prevention and treatment. The seeds contain lignans, a form of phytonutrient thought to reduce the risk of contracting this deadly disease. Some research, especially in the fields of breast and prostate cancer, indicates that this is true.
