Organic Shelled Pumpkin Seeds

Product of Canada 

  • Rich Nutritional Profile: Organic shelled pumpkin seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients, offering a substantial amount of magnesium, which is crucial for bone health and energy production. They also provide generous amounts of zinc, which supports the immune system, and iron, essential for transporting oxygen in the blood.
  • Heart Health Benefits: These seeds are rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which has been linked to a reduced risk of heart diseases. The presence of antioxidants helps combat oxidative stress and inflammation, both of which are risk factors for heart disease.
  • Improved Sleep Quality: Containing a natural source of tryptophan, an amino acid that can help promote sleep, organic shelled pumpkin seeds could be a natural way to improve sleep quality. Magnesium found in the seeds also plays a role in supporting deep, restorative sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep.
  • Plant-Based Protein Source: For those following a vegetarian or vegan diet, organic shelled pumpkin seeds are an excellent plant-based protein source. They provide a good amount of protein, which is vital for muscle repair, growth, and overall body functions. This makes them a valuable addition to any diet, particularly for those looking to increase their protein intake without consuming animal products.
  • Supports Prostate Health: Pumpkin seeds have long been valued for their high zinc content, which is important for prostate health. Additionally, research suggests that compounds in pumpkin seeds may help reduce symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition in which the prostate gland enlarges, causing problems with urination and bladder control.

Storage

Keep your pumpkin seeds fresher longer by keeping them in an airtight container. Whole or ground, it's not required to be stored in the fridge. A cool, dark pantry should be fine. Though just as storing nuts in the fridge increases their shelf life, the same goes for pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds will last up to a year when stored in the fridge or freezer.
