Health Benefits of Pumpkin Seeds
- Pumpkin seeds are not only delicious but are rich in minerals such as manganese that aids in the metabolism of fats, magnesium that is crucial in blood pressure control, phosphorous that is involved in bone formation, and iron that is needed for red blood cell production. Pumpkin seed kernels are a good source of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) that is converted into EPA and DHA by the body. Omega-3s are involved in brain health and reduce the risk of strokes and diabetes. The serving of protein and fiber promotes a feeling of fullness, which prevents high-calorie intake during meals. The fiber content also contributes to digestive health by promoting smooth movement of food in the gut. A 100-gram serving of the seeds provides 237% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin E. It functions as a powerful antioxidant, preventing free radicals from destroying cells.
