Pumpkin Seeds

Raquel 0 Comments

Pumpkins, like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, were found in Mexico. Pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses wrapped up in a very small package, with a wide variety of nutrients ranging from magnesium and manganese to copper, protein and zinc. They contain many beneficial plant compounds known as phytosterols and free-radical scavenging antioxidants, that can give your health an added boost. Pumpkin seeds may benefit your heart, liver and immune system, help fight diabetes, and offer unique benefits for prostate health and relief of menopausal symptoms.
