Because I’m in the middle of an out-of-state move, I thought you might enjoy this blog by Cherokee Billie about the health benefits of pumpkin seeds on this first day of October.
Who knew that pumpkin seeds had so many health benefits? Enjoy these seeds raw or roasted. This year when you carve out your pumpkin do not toss out these health givers! All things were made by The Creator to help us in this life.
1. Heart Healthy Magnesium
One-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds contains nearly half of the recommended daily amount of magnesium, which participates in a wide range of vitally important physiological functions, including the creation of ATP (adenosine triphospate, the energy molecules of your body), the synthesis of RNA and DNA, the pumping of your heart, proper bone and tooth formation, relaxation of your blood vessels, and proper bowel function.
Magnesium has been shown to benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke, yet an estimated 80 percent of Americans are deficient in this important mineral.
2. Zinc for Immune Support
