When people think of pumpkins, most think about Halloween or, if you’re American, something that’s part of a Thanksgiving dinner. Very few probably consider it as being healthy food. But pumpkins and its seed offer significant nutritional benefits, Omega Nutrition has found.
Pumpkins seeds have long been popular in Easter Europe and India because they’re proven to maintain the health of the prostate gland and treat many ailments.
They are a good source of zinc and magnesium. And a pumpkin’s color is orange due to lutein, alpha-carotene, and beta-carotene, which convert Vitamin A in the body.
For people who love salads, pumpkin oil can be used as a dressing. Unrefined pumpkin seed oil is a great source of Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids and is good for the skin and hair.
Another pumpkin product, that is also offered in the market today by Omega Nutrition, is Pumpkin Seed butter. This is equally nutritious and can be a great alternative to peanut and other nut butters. This is also great for those people who love the spread but suffer from nut allergies.
