When looking for superfoods, we often focus on fruits and vegetables and carelessly forget about seeds. Here we will see what some of the biggest benefits of pumpkin seeds.

- Serve as an antidepressant

Pumpkin seeds contain 'L-tryptophan', which has been shown to be an effective and natural antidepressant. Tryptophan is also found in milk, but it takes just one gram of pumpkin seeds to get as much tryptophan as a whole glass of milk.

- Helps bone strength.

Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc and this makes them a good way to fight osteoporosis that is linked to a low zinc intake.

- Helps regulate the sense of smell.

Another powerful effect of zinc is to help improve and regulate a strong sense of smell. And you get this if you consume pumpkin and other fruits that contain it.

- Help to increase testosterone.

Zinc along with magnesium is helpful in increasing testosterone levels and sperm count in men. Pumpkin seeds contain both. As testosterone is an anabolic hormone that stimulates both weight loss and muscle growth it could be a good choice for a bodybuilder's diet.

- Works as an anti-inflammatory

Pumpkin seeds have been shown to be effective in preventing inflammation.

- Helps digestion.

Pumpkin seeds, of course, are high in fiber. This means that it can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure and improve digestion. It can also encourage bowel movements and prevent constipation and for this reason it is often recommended for cats and dogs.

- They contain a lot of protein

At the same time, pumpkin seeds are also a good source of protein that is useful for rebuilding tissue and muscles.

- Helps fight cholesterol.

As mentioned, pumpkin seeds can be helpful in fighting cholesterol due to their high fiber content. However, this is also further enhanced by the inclusion of phytosterols.

- Antiparasitic.

It has cucurbitin, an alkaloid-type active principle with vermifuge properties that paralyzes intestinal parasites? Such as tapeworms or tapeworms and ascaris? and once immobilized, they detach from the intestinal wall and that is when it is easy to expel them.

The seeds, or seeds, of the pumpkin can be eaten raw, roasted, or cooked and pureed.

Now that you know all the benefits of pumpkin seeds, I recommend that you consume them regularly in any meal or the pure seed, as you wish, in addition to being very healthy, they are very delicious.
