Product Description

USDA_organicseal_1in.gifFrom boosting immunity to helping ensure good sleep, pumpkin seeds offers many potential perks.

  • Plant-based protein powerhouse (39g per cup)
  • Potassium rich with 588 mg per cup. Compare that to the famous potassium source known as a banana — a medium one provides 422 mg
  • Contains 168 milligrams of magnesium, more than half of the 310 mg adult women should consume daily
  • Bolsters your immunity with 6.5mg of zinc
  • Contains L-tryptophan (which is used in melatonin and serotonin production) helps improves mood and helps you sleep better
  • Rich full of antioxidants with forms of vitamin E, as well as the phenolic acids hydroxybenzoic, caffeic, coumaric, ferulic, sinapic, protocatechuic, vanillic, syringic acid and antioxidant phytonutrients like lignans

According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Nutrient Database, approximately two tablespoons of unshelled pumpkin seeds (28 grams) contains 125 calories, 15 grams of carbohydrate (including 0 grams of sugar and 5 grams of fiber) and 5 grams of protein as well as 5% of your daily iron needs.  Pumpkin seeds are a source of magnesium, zinc, copper and selenium.

Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like pumpkin seeds decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and overall mortality while promoting healthy complexion and hair, increased energy and overall lower weight.

Uses:

  • Top salads with pumpkin seeds
  • Make homemade granola with a mixture of nuts, pumpkin seeds and dried fruit
  • Brush pumpkin seeds with olive oil, season with cumin and garlic powder and bake until brown and toasted
  • Make your own pumpkin seed butter (like peanut butter) by blending whole, raw pumpkin seeds in a food processor until smooth

In powdered form, Pumpkin Seeds can be used in baking breads.

Pumpkin Seeds also contain an oil, which is commonly used in cosmetics.
