Squash seeds are real health allies. Here’s why :
1. Pumpkin seeds are rich in magnesium. 1/4 cup of seeds contains almost half of the recommended daily allowance of magnesium. This magnesium is essential for many vital physiological functions, especially for the health of the heart, cardiovascular system, digestive system, bones and teeth.
2. Pumpkin seeds are rich in iron. Foods rich in iron help fight fatigue and anemia.
3. Pumpkin seeds are rich in omega 3. This benefit makes them exceptional in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. These monounsaturated fatty acids, associated with soluble fibers, but also with vitamins E (antioxidant), B2 and B3, help lower bad cholesterol levels.
4. Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc. They are excellent stimulants of the immune system which also has an effect on the health of cells, eyes, skin but also sleep and mood. The pumpkin seeds therefore help fight colds, flu, states of chronic fatigue, depression and acne.
