Health Benefits of Pumpkin Seeds

Halloween is quickly approaching, so the pumpkin carving has begun, with that comes some delicious and nutritious pumpkin seeds!

Pumpkin seeds are considered a nutritional powerhouse, containing magnesium, copper, protein, vitamin K, iron, and  zinc! They are full of antioxidants, high in fiber & low in calories.

Here are some good excuses to snack on pumpkin seeds this October:

  1. Anti- diabetic effects (lower blood sugar)
  2. Zinc for immune support
  3. Contain Omega-3 Fats
  4. Improves sleep
  5. Heart and liver health
  6. Anti-Inflammatory Benefits
  7. Reduces risk of prostate, colon, breast and lung cancer
