You might not know this...


But pumpkin seeds are far beyond just a dietary zinc source.


You are missing out on many important health benefits if you’re not eating pumpkin seeds.


Eating pumpkin seeds regularly…


Helps Expel Parasites.

Pumpkin seeds are capable of causing the evacuation of parasitic intestinal worms (Applequist et al.,2006; Caili et al., 2006).

If not evacuated, intestinal worms increase your risk for anemia and intestinal blockages. This may lead to serious health problems.


Improves Prostate Health.

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 can cause a clinically significant reduction in International Prostate Symptom Scores (Vahlensieck et al., 2015)


Reduces Sugar Spikes After Meals

Acute consumption of 65g of pumpkin seeds with a high sugar meal markedly reduced postprandial glycemia in healthy individuals.


In other words, adding pumpkin seeds to your muesli/carb meals can help to reduce the sugar spike from the meal (Cândido et al., 2018).


Potential Anti-Cancer Benefits


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


All Natural.


Pumpkin seeds are another great example of food as medicine.


You don’t always have to visit a doctor and buy supplements to improve your health.
