Why Pumpkin seeds are good for your health. #Health tips

Seeds are some of the most overlooked nutrient sources out there in the plant-based kingdom, though many are rising in their popularity now more than ever. Seeds such as hemp, chia, and flax have been well-known for years for their high omega 3 content and their protein content. Yet pumpkin seeds are one of the most nutritious from the plant based kingdom and super tasty.
These seeds are sometimes referred to as pepitas, Spanish for "little seed of squash." They are an edible seed typically roasted for consumption, and a common ingredient in Mexican cuisine often eaten as a healthful snack and best when roasted.
Many studies have suggested that
increasing consumption of plant foods like pumpkin seeds decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and overall mortality while promoting healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.
Not only that but these shelled pumpkin seeds locally found in supermarkets and are the most nutrient dense source of Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, and Selenium. Magnesium is the highest, one of these seven essential macrominerals of all kinds that has long been associated with a reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions.
It also plays an important role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, including the metabolism of food and synthesis of fatty acids and proteins. Which are vital for the proper functioning of muscles, liver, heart and bone health, as well as being a great way to treat insomnia by releasing the “feel good” hormone which relaxes you for a better night’s rest.
