Are you experiencing sleepless nights, worrying about your family history of heart problems? Battling constant sickness or continuous pains in your joints? Most people on the planet are all experiencing some variety of these problems, but are too scared or distrustful of pills and their side effects to take them as a solution. The good news is that for those who are willing to add a little natural goodness to their daily eating habits, seed suppliers in South Africa have a solution: pumpkin seeds.
Help your heart and liver
Magnesium is an extremely important mineral for the functioning of the human body, fuelling hundreds of vital physiological functions. Amongst these functions we find magnesium assisting in the pumping of the heart as well as relaxing of the blood vessels. Most people are magnesium deficient without even realizing. It has been proven that by supplementing their magnesium intake with pumpkin seeds it does indeed make a positive difference in blood pressure management, helping to prevent heart attacks and strokes.
Seed companies are providing even more than just magnesium in pumpkin seeds though; they are also rich in Omega 3. On top of magnesium’s assistance, Omega 3 has also been proven to improve blood pressure and blood vessel condition, further reducing the risk of heart attacks and similar issues.
Reinforce your immune system
With so many cold and flu strains, stomach bugs and a host of other health risks floating around, immune systems are being put to the test. Seed companies are providing the guide to passing this test as well with pumpkin seeds and their high zinc content. Zinc is known as a mineral which aids the immune system and also helps in the healing of wounds. It has been found that in most developing countries where colds and rashes are common that there is a frequently occurring zinc deficiency.
With roughly 10 mg of zinc in every 100 grams, pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, perfect for com batting colds and flu and even mood irregularities. Given that the recommended daily intake of zinc is only 15 mg, you can see how adding a small amount of pumpkin seeds from your local seed company to your diet will drastically improve your day-to-day health.
Another one of the major issue affecting the quality of life for countless people is inflammation. Seed companies have come to the fore here yet again with pumpkin seeds. Taking some pumpkin seed oil and massaging it into the affected joints has proven to provide pain relief, without any negative effects. In fact, tests have been conducted with rats to compare the effects of pumpkin seed oil and pharmaceutical drugs. While both were effective, only the pumpkin seed oil was completely free of negative side effects, which is a clear added bonus.
Insomnia and general difficulty sleeping is another common issue today, and millions are finding their state of physical and mental health being affected by it. Pumpkin seeds contain the amino acid tryptophan, which is then converted to produce melatonin and serotonin to promote peaceful sleep and improved mood. Just take a handful before heading to bed and it will work wonders, and it’s all-natural.
The list of benefits from adding even a small dose of pumpkin seeds to your daily diet are obvious. All you need to do is find and contact a seed company or seed suppliers in South Africa and pick some up. If for some reason pumpkin seeds just aren’t for you, here’s a directory of suppliers for nearly anything you may need.
