ORGANIC PUMPKIN SEED

Description

Organic pumpkin seeds may be small, but they're mighty full of healthy plant-based fats, magnesium, iron, and zinc that reduce risk of cardiovascular diseases while boosting immunity. This nutty, slightly bitter tasting seed is also high in powerful antioxidants like carotenoids and vitamin E to combat damage caused by free radicals with anti-inflammatory properties. They make an incredibly nutritious and tasty snack food to be sprinkled over salads, soups or cereals, and can even be used as an ingredient for baked goods or stir-fries for added crunch.

 

Fun fact: Due to its rich source of Tryptophan (an amino acid), organic pumpkin seed is proven to improve sleep and lift mood. Now, who doesn’t love that?!
