Pumpkin Seeds Small Yet Pack a Punch

When some folks see “seed mix” as a breakfast on their plan, they think, “What is this? Bird food?” Some find it tough to get used to while other Metabolic balancers love the option.

The most common species of pumpkin used as a source of pumpkin seeds are Cucurbita pepo, Cucurbita maxima, Cucurbita moschata, and Cucurbita mixta.


Dr. Wolf has told us that pumpkin seeds have a strong therapeutic effect. Containing almost 50% fatty acids, minerals and trace elements such as manganese, zinc, copper and selenium. Pumpkin seeds contain a  diverse mixture of antioxidants  that may provide them with antioxidant-related properties not widely found in other foods.

Pumpkin seeds also contain phytosterols which have a good effect on the bladder and prostate.

Pumpkin seeds, pumpkin seed extracts, and pumpkin seed oil have long been valued for their anti-microbial benefits, including their anti-fungal, anti-viral properties and as a vermifuge (helps expel parasites).
