Organic Pumpkin Seeds are popular for their pungent flavour.
The more green and plump the seeds are, the more tasty and nutritious they become. Organic, freshly packed pumpkin seeds like these really do taste exceptional. Although you can prepare your own pumpkin seeds from fresh pumpkins, it can be a little messy, time consuming and you would need to eat a lot of pumpkin flesh to stay in supply!

The Nutritional Benefits of Organic Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are a source of fibre, protein, potassium and are high in iron, magnesium, phosphorous, vitamin K, Zinc, manganese, copper and riboflavin. Needless to say, these seeds are nutrient dense.
Protein: We all know we need protein because it contributes to a growth in muscle mass but did you know it contributes to the maintenance of normal bones? This makes it essential for adults and children.
Zinc: This nutrient contributes to normal function of the immune system, DNA synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism. It is also needed for cognitive function, fertility and reproduction and metabolism of fatty acids. Additionally our bodies use it for the maintenance of bone, hair, skin and nails. It protects cells from oxidative stress which is so important in a world where our bodies are exposed to so many toxins daily.
Iron: It is vital to get enough iron and many whole foods contain high levels of it. Iron contributes to normal cognitive function and immune system function. It is also necessary for the reduction of tiredness and energy-yielding metabolism. Iron is also vital for formation of red blood cells, transportation of oxygen and cell division.
Manganese: This vital nutrient contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, formation of connective tissue and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
