NAKED PUMPKIN SEED
SUPERFOOD LOVED BY CHILDREN AND ADULTS
All Pumpkin seeds are considered a superfood, but this hulless variety offers more protein and Omega-3s than traditional varieties. Historically known to provide help for digestive tract problems and promote prostate health.
HISTORY OF THIS SUPERFOOD
For the last 300 years, a unique pumpkin has been grown in Europe. This large gold/green pumpkin is prized for its seeds, which have a thin, membranous seed coat. The entire seed is edible, and, uninhibited by a shell, grows significantly larger than traditional pumpkin seeds. The naked pumpkin seeds have a deep green color and are a rich source of beneficial nutrients. These pumpkin seeds are higher in good quality protein, Omega-3s, Vitamin E & B, antioxidants and have a much greater flavor profile than regular pumpkin seeds.
HIGH IN OMEGA-3 fatty acids
Rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid that lowers bad LDL cholesterol and increases good HDL in the blood.
HIGH IN ANTI-OXIDANTS
Rich in vitamin E…containing about 10.3 mg of tocopherol-gamma, a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, per serving.
GOOD QUALITY PROTEIN
10g per serving. These plump seeds are a great source for muscle building protein. Excellent source of amino acid tryptophan and glutamate. Trytophan is converted into serotonin and niacin. Glutamate is required in the synthesis of GABA, an anti-stress neurochemical in the brain, reducing anxiety, irritability, and other neurotic conditions.
EXCELLENT SOURCE OF B-COMPLEX
Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, antithetic acid, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) and folates. These vitamins work as co-factors for various enzymes during cellular substrate metabolism in the human body.
