👉🏽PUMPKIN SEEDS ARE FAR BEYOND JUST A DIETARY ZINC SOURCE.⁣

🐛HELPS EXPEL PARASITES:⁣
Pumpkin seeds are capable of causing the evacuation of parasitic intestinal worms (Applequist et al., 2006; Caili et al., 2006).⁣

🍆HELPS MEN DOWN BELOW:⁣
Prostate health is essential for all men. In fact, prostate enlargement/Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms is estimated to be an issue for over 70% of men over the age of 40. Pumpkin seeds are able to cause a clinically significant reduction in International Prostate Symptom Scores (Vahlensieck et al., 2015).⁣

❇️REDUCES SUGAR SPIKES AFTER MEALS:⁣
Acute consumption of 65 g of pumpkin seeds with a high sugar meal markedly reduced postprandial glycemia in healthy individuals. In other words, adding pumpkin seeds with your museli/carb meal can help to reduce the sugar spike from the meal (Cândido et al., 2018). ⁣

🔥POTENTIAL ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES:⁣

Diets rich in pumpkin seeds were also reported to be associated with lower levels of gastric, breast, lung, and colorectal cancer (Huang et al., 2004). ⁣

💥TAKEAWAY:⁣
Another great example of Foods as Medicine. With this kind of knowledge, one can really take full control of their health. Pumpkin seeds offer us a unique set of benefits.
